Children’s BAFTA Nod for Sarah Jane Adventures

The Sarah Jane Adventures has received its fourth consecutive nomination for the British Academy Children’s Awards in the Drama category.

The awards on November 27th will be up against the BBC’s Just William (the fourth television incarnation of Richmal Crompton’s William Brown series which was adapted by Amy’s Choice writer Simon Nye) Nickelodeon’s British/American/Belgian co-produced horror soap opera House of Anubis, and CBBC’S Combat Kids, a look at awkwardness of a family divided by the difficulties of military life.

As well as being given the nod in the drama category head writer Phil Ford (The Waters of Mars) was also nominated in the Writer category along with Simon Nye.

But that’s not all. Kids aged between 7-14 will be able to have their say about their favourite films, shows, websites and games in the BAFTA Kids Vote 2011, with The Sarah Jane Adventures leading a very strong TV shortlist. Voting is open now and will close on 25th November. The winners of each category will be presented their award by BAFTA’s special guests JLS.

To check out the shortlist and vote for your favourites head over to the BAFTA Kid’s Vote site.

(With thanks to James)

About the Author


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.

One Response to Children’s BAFTA Nod for Sarah Jane Adventures

    There may be another chance for BAFTA nominations next year too, since these nominations are clearly for Series 4, though I’d imagine SJA stands a good chance of being honoured as a memorial to Lis Sladen. (If the awards are televised I’d be very surprised if they didn’t include a tribute to her.)
