Moffat Eats RTS Awards

This year’s Royal Television Society Craft and Design Awards has taken place with prizes being given out to two of Steven Moffat’s babies, Doctor Who and Sherlock.

The ceremony, which took place at London’s Savoy Hotel, was hosted by comedy twosome Dick and Dom.

Sherlock (starring Benedict Cumberbatch, right) won best picture enhancement, best tape and film editing in a drama, and best original title music. And rightly so, the editing was fast paced and excellent giving the drama a wonderful push forward in the drama department!

The best digital effects award went to (drum roll please!) Doctor Who episode The Pandorica Opens – while Sky’s adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal won prizes for best original score and best photography in a drama.

Other shows that claimed a prize include Facejacker - which won twice, picking up the non-drama awards for costume design and make-up design

A special award was also given to the production team behind Coronation Street, so in other words Phil Collinson.

So how’s that for recognition not only does a member of the previous Doctor Who production team get an award but the new showrunner gets one as well, at the same event! Now that’s progress!
