There Hugo, Moff!

Doctor Who has won its fifth Hugo Award in the history of the ceremony for the Series 5 finale The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang.

The award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) also marks the fourth time that Steven Moffat has picked up a gong- he had previously won for The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, The Girl in the Fireplace and the peerless Blink.

The concluding two parter also beat Doctor Who episodes Vincent and the Doctor and A Christmas Carol as well as the picture book The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan and, bizarrely, the viral hit F##k Me, Ray Bradbury by Rachael Bloom.

Outside of the land of the cathode ray the Best Related Work award was nabbed by Chicks Dig Time Lords. Edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Tara O’Shea, the title pretty much describes what the book is about apart!

The Hugo Awards – designed to celebrate achievement in both Science Fiction and Fantasy – have been running since 1955 and are named after Hugo Gernsback, the founder of the pioneering Sci-Fi magazine Amazing Stories.

 



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
