Broadcast on BBC One this evening, the event is intended to honour those that have made a positive contribution to television over the past 12 months – although for some reason a “Special Award” is being given to Simon Cowell. So much for “positive”.
In the nominations department, Doctor Who doesn’t get a look-in – nothing for David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Bernard Cribbins, or any of the new series cast and crew.
Which begs the question:
Why is the TARDIS there at all? With no nominations for Doctor Who – and the only obvious interest in Suranne Jones (Mona Lisa’s Revenge in the most recent series of The Sarah Jane Adventures) and Sophie Okonedo (Liz 10 in The Beast Below) – it can only be for promotional or “big announcement” purposes.
