It’s that time of year again – the National Television Awards air on ITV 1 this evening, with Doctor Who, Matt Smith and Steven Moffat all up for a gong.
As voting is now closed, your job now as a Doctor Who fan is to sit in front of the TV with your fingers crossed going “oooeeeeooooo” through every commercial break and chanting “Doctor”, Last of the Time Lords-style – for every category that the series is nominated in (Drama and Drama Performance).
If won’t be easy, either – Sherlock is nominated in Drama with Benedict Cumberbatch also nominated for Drama Performance. Steven Moffat will have few complaints having that alternative, and neither will Beth Willis; Ashes to Ashes star Philip Glenister is nominated once again in the Drama Performance category.
Tune into ITV1 at 7:30pm to check the fun (or take an awards-season holiday and ignore it. No one would blame you…)
