Doctor Who News no image

Don’t Miss NTAs Tonight!

It’s that time of year again – the National Television Awards air on ITV 1 this evening, with Doctor Who, Matt Smith and Steven Moffat all up for a gong.

As voting is now closed, your job now as a Doctor Who fan is to sit in front of the TV with your fingers crossed going “oooeeeeooooo” through every commercial break and chanting “Doctor”, Last of the Time Lords-style – for every category that the series is nominated in (Drama and Drama Performance).

If won’t be easy, either – Sherlock is nominated in Drama with Benedict Cumberbatch also nominated for Drama Performance. Steven Moffat will have few complaints having that alternative, and neither will Beth Willis; Ashes to Ashes star Philip Glenister is nominated once again in the Drama Performance category.

Tune into ITV1 at 7:30pm to check the fun (or take an awards-season holiday and ignore it. No one would blame you…)

    Ugh. Doctor Who lost to Waterloo Road (A show I loathe cos I frickin’ hated school so why on earth would I want to watch a show set in one) and already this Tennant fangirl ‘friend’ I have is spamming my phone with text messages saying she was right all along that Smith and Moffat were wrong and her precious David Tennant should never have left and how I’m wrong in that I think the Eleventh Doctor is potentially the greatest of all, certainly of the modern era. I might contact o2 about how to block a number. I was going to anyways about all those automated sales thingies that keep calling my mobile and asking if I’m in debt (never have been)

    • There’s an app for that…
