Doctor-Who-50th-Anniversary

The 2014 Hugo Awards

The shortlist for the 2014 Hugo Awards has been announced, with Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary having a heavy presence in the Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) category.

Could An Adventure in Space and Time, The Day of the Doctor, The Name of the Doctor and The Five(ish) Doctors - pull in another victory for Doctor Who in the competition? Steven Moffat has had a good run in the Hugos over the years, but we’re hoping that Peter Davison is the man to grab victory this time, simply because he’s all kinds of awesome.

Here’s the full list.

An Adventure in Space and Time written by Mark Gatiss, directed by Terry McDonough (BBC Television)
Doctor Who: “The Day of the Doctor” written by Steven Moffat, directed by Nick Hurran (BBC Television)
