Since 2005, Doctor Who has amassed a massive collection of awards an honours that while in complete contrast with the earlier phase of the series, has helped to prove to many fans that “we were right” about it being the best show on TV – even when it wasn’t in production.
Curiously the only notable award from 1963-1989 was for ‘Best Children’s Drama’ from the Writers’ Guild Of Great Britain… in 1975. This is of course a far cry from BAFTA, National Television Awards, TV Quick and HUGO – although in fairness there weren’t as many awards around 35 years ago.
While David Tennant’s time as the Tenth Doctor will always be remembered for his on air live departure announcement at the 2008 National Television Awards, there are plenty of other things to remember!
