Moffat Pleased About Five(ish) Doctors Hugo Nomination!
The BBC Official Doctor Who page has posted Steven Moffat’s reaction to the show’s four Hugo Awards nominations.
Organized by the World Science Fiction Society, the Hugos recognize the best in science fiction works every year and are presented at the World Science Fiction Convention.
Episodes of Doctor Who have been nominated every year since it became eligible after the rebooted series began in 2005. Last year, the show lost to an episode of Game Of Thrones.
This year, The Name Of The Doctor, The Day Of The Doctor, The Five(ish) Doctors, and An Adventure In Space And Time have all been nominated for the Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form award.
When asked about the nominations, Steven Moffat was quite pleased.
For Doctor Who to receive four Hugo nominations in its anniversary year is completely thrilling. We are all over the moon. I’m particularly pleased about The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot as that was my acting debut. I remain available for any parts requiring a black jumper and slightly unrealistic hair.
The graphic novel The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who by Paul Cornell and illustrated by Jimmy Broxton, was also nominated.
The 2014 Hugo Awards will be presented at the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, Loncon3, in London on 17 August.
