TV Choice Honours Doctor Who!

Doctor Who has bagged two prizes at the TV Choice Awards, picking up the Best Drama Series award for the fourth year in a row and also being recognised with an Outstanding Contribution to TV award.

The Doctor busks - is it his Tommy Cooper routine?

The Doctor busks – is it his Tommy Cooper routine?

The latter was awarded in honour of the programme’s fiftieth anniversary, and, a nice touch this, Steven Moffat was on dickie bow and dinner suit duty to pick it up on the night from Peter Davison.

Doctor Who beat a strong field of popular returning series for the Best Drama Series gong, coming out ahead of Call The Midwife, Downton Abbey and Waterloo Road in the readers’ vote.

Elsewhere in the awards, Ten beat Eleven as David Tennant came out ahead of Matt Smith to be named Best Actor for Broadchurch. Also in the acting stakes, Jenna Coleman lost out for Best Actress to Miranda Hart for Call The Midwife. A good night for Chris Chibnall’s hit ITV drama saw Broadchurch named Best New Drama.

You’ll find a full list of winners at TV Choice, and in the new edition of the magazine.

Could the programme be in line for other awards in this anniversary year? BAFTA fellowship? Special Emmy? George Cross?

About the Author

Jonathan remembers catching Tony Hughes's Doctor in BBC Schools Maths show when he was off school in 1975. This more than made up for having chickenpox. Something of an old hand by this time, he had learned from The Doctor Who Monster Book that there were other Doctors and adventures to discover - an exciting prospect for a five year old.
