Eccleston Nabs International Emmy Award

Congratulations to the Ninth Doctor himself Christopher Eccleston who nabbed the Best Performance by an Actor award at this years’ International Emmy Awards.

Eccleston picked up the gong for his performance as William Houlihan in Jimmy McGovern’s Accused – which told the stories of several people awaiting the verdict of their trials for various crimes .

In Eccleston’s episode William Houlian, a plumber, found himself in possession of £20,000 of what turned out to be forged money.

The mini series also took home the award for Best Drama Series making it the sole UK-based contender to take multiple awards.

Others included Julie Walters winning the Best Performance by an Actress for her portrayal of the late MP Mo Mowlam in Mo; The World’s Strictest Parents bossed its way to a the award for best non-scripted entertainment award, while Gareth Malone Goes to Glyndebourne won the Best Arts Programme award.


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.
