Doctor Who @ The BAFTAs!

The BAFTA’s are taking place this Sunday and the television award show will be honouring and celebrating Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary in a few different ways!

Two Daleks will be making an appearance and will make their way up the esteemed red carpet as honoured guests; whether they try and exterminate their television rivals is anyone’s guess. Jenna-Louise Coleman has also been invited along as an ambassador of Doctor Who and to present an award on the night.

Alongside that, there will be a specially-created sketch starring Matt Smith and Coleman that will be screened during the ceremony: will this be a prequel to The Name of the Doctor or will it be something more lightweight for the guests? Our guess is probably the latter.

Finally, there will be a video montage played to guests that will highlight some of the most memorable scenes and characters from Doctor Who in the first 50 years of the show – or Phase 1 as it should henceforth be known.

BAFTA chief executive, Amanda Barry commented:

There are only a handful of programmes that have the quality and longevity of Doctor Who and the ability to put the nation on their sofas – or indeed behind them – year after year.

The BAFTA’s take place this Sunday at London’s Royal Festival Hall and will be screened on BBC One at 8pm on the same night.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
