Doctor Who continues to garner praise as Series 7 comes to an end with one gong for its outstanding contribution to television and a nomination in the TV Choice awards.
Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Steven Moffat attended the Peabody Awards at the prestigious Waldorf-Astoria in New York where Doctor Who picked up an Institutional Peabody Award.
The George Foster Peabody Awards celebrate excellence in radio and television broadcasting and is one of the highest honours in television.
The awarding committee of distinguished academics, television critics, industry practitioners and experts in culture and the arts described the show as:
“Seemingly immortal, 50-years-old and still running, this engaging, imaginative sci-fi/fantasy series is awarded an Institutional Peabody for evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe.”
But that’s not the only good news – the show has also been nominated in the Best Drama category in the TV Choice Magazine Awards 2013.
The TV Choice Awards, now in their 17th year, honour the most popular TV stars and shows and are voted for by you, the viewing public.
You can back your favourites by voting online or via the Magazine forms.
The ceremony will take place on Monday 9 September so hopefully Matt and Jenna will have another trophy to pick up!
Finally, David Tennant has confirmed he will not be attending the 53rd Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo between the 9-13th June where he was due to represent ITV1’s mega-hit Broadchurch along with his co-star Olivia Coleman (The Eleventh Hour).
The show, written by Doctor Who writer Chris Chibnall, has been nominated in the Best Mini-Series category.
