Various elements of the Whoniverse have cleaned up at this year’s Royal Television Society Programme Awards, with Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat in particular claiming a prestigious gong!
While David Tennant failed to win the Best Actor award for Single Father – instead being beaten by The Curse of the Fatal Death‘s Jim Broadbent for Any Human Heart, and A History of Horror with Mark Gatiss was beaten by Alan Bennett and the Habit of Art, Sherlock was successful in winning the Best Drama award The Sarah Jane Adventures was the winner of the all-important Children’s Drama award (and in a prime example of the sorry state of affairs in children’s drama, was up against one other nominee, Tracy Beaker Returns…)
It is Steven Moffat who should be the proudest owner of a hangover this morning, however, as the recipient of Judges Award for bringing us Sherlock and Doctor Who during the past 12 months.
Congratulations to The Grand Moff – it’s surely well deserved!
