Will Doctor Who Win At The National Television Awards?

It’s National Television Awards time again, which means the beginning of awards season in the UK. But to the point: is Doctor Who in with a chance of a gong?

You may recall that when voting started (it closed at midday today) Doctor Who was nominated in the Best Drama category, with Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman in the Best Performance category.

While we can’t say yet what the result will be, it is possible to get an idea of how voting is going by turning attention to Twitter, as the London School of Economics has done. As reported by the Radio Times:

Taking into account the volume of tweets, sentiment (positive or negative) and viewing figures, each show has been given a score out of ten, and a list of Hotlist winners selected.

Based on this, the result for Best Drama is predicted:


·        Doctor Who – 8.00
·        Downton Abbey – 7.00
·        Call the Midwife – 7.00
·        Broadchurch – 6.67

Fingers crossed!
