Doctor Who - the TARDIS at BAFTAAs reported by the official BAFTA Twitter feed today, a police box has been snapped on the red carpet at the television awards event in London.

Broadcast on BBC One this evening, the event is intended to honour those that have made a positive contribution to television over the past 12 months – although for some reason a “Special Award” is being given to Simon Cowell. So much for “positive”.

In the nominations department, Doctor Who doesn’t get a look-in – nothing for David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Bernard Cribbins, or any of the new series cast and crew.

Which begs the question:

Why is the TARDIS there at all? With no nominations for Doctor Who – and the only obvious interest in Suranne Jones (Mona Lisa’s Revenge in the most recent series of The Sarah Jane Adventures) and Sophie Okonedo (Liz 10 in The Beast Below) – it can only be for promotional or “big announcement” purposes.

Time will tell…
