And the Winner Is(n’t)…

An almighty administrative cock-up has seen Doctor Who picking up an award destined for E4’s ASBO superhero show Misfits reports the BBC.

The mistake saw the episode A Christmas Carol presented with the digital effects prize at the Royal Television Society’s craft and design award that had been intended for Misfits.

Apologises have been issued to the BBC, E4 and the production companies behind both programmes who vowed furious vengeance against the RTS accepted them gracefully.

A spokesman for the RTS reiterated that: ‘steps have been taken to ensure that it cannot happen again’ while beating the ashes of his former colleague out of his clothing.

The organisation was quick to praise Misfits effects, citing:

“A level of quality and a volume of work which is rarely seen outside the cinema.”

While also praising its fashionable dress sense, its brilliant personality and its generous loving nature – all in a desperate attempt to praise the shame away.

Other actual winners included three awards in make up, production design and costume design for BBC 2’s adaptation of The Crimson Petal and White and a photography award for Downton Abbey.


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.
