Success in the Virgin Media Awards
Not content with having a finger in nearly every pie in the world, Richard Branson has made sure that Virgin has their own television award ceremony just in case you hadn’t noticed the company before.
As voted by the public, Doctor Who won television show of the year with a massive forty three per cent of the vote. It beat popular shows such as The Only Way Is Essex, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and Merlin.
Mr Rory Pond was named TV character of the year, which meant that he beat Captain Jack Harkness from Torchwood and Eric Northman, the vampire from True Blood. The boy who waited two thousand years for Amy Pond obviously tugged at the heart strings of the public more than anyone realised!
Most explosive moment of the year went to the Doctor being shot at the still point in time on a beach in Utah, America in . Best actress and hottest female went to Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan who fought off the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar (Ringer) and Olivia Wilde (House).
