The War Doctor Says: Vote Doctor Who At The BAFTAs!

You’d be a fool to argue with the man who destroyed Gallifrey and billions of Daleks… or at least thinks he did that. So, with this in mind, it’s time to pay attention to John Hurt, who presents a persuasive argument as to why you should vote Doctor Who in the Radio Times Audience Award at this year’s Bafta Television Awards

His reasoning is fair; let’s face it, it was bound to be.

Meanwhile, if for some reason the numerical Ninth Doctor’s case doesn’t persuade you, perhaps the thoughts of comedian and broadcaster Frank Skinner will. His case is summed up by Boyd Hilton of HEAT, who says:

It was an excellent celebration. It’s rare that a programme lives up to the hype. This did. And the Tom Baker
 surprise was the perfect ending and a brilliantly kept secret.

Voting is open until midday on Thursday May 15 at – get your vote in now!

    It really was an excellent celebration— and it occurs to me that with the eleven Doctors, the War Doctor, Capaldi and the Curator, we actually had 14 Doctors in that special!

      Actually, even without counting the Curator, there were 14 Doctors saving Gallifrey, as the Seventh Doctor flew in twice, once in his 80s TARDIS and once in his 90s one.
