Doctor Who has bagged two prizes at the TV Choice Awards, picking up the Best Drama Series award for the fourth year in a row and also being recognised with an Outstanding Contribution to TV award.
The latter was awarded in honour of the programme’s fiftieth anniversary, and, a nice touch this, Steven Moffat was on dickie bow and dinner suit duty to pick it up on the night from Peter Davison.
Doctor Who beat a strong field of popular returning series for the Best Drama Series gong, coming out ahead of Call The Midwife, Downton Abbey and Waterloo Road in the readers’ vote.
Elsewhere in the awards, Ten beat Eleven as David Tennant came out ahead of Matt Smith to be named Best Actor for Broadchurch. Also in the acting stakes, Jenna Coleman lost out for Best Actress to Miranda Hart for Call The Midwife. A good night for Chris Chibnall’s hit ITV drama saw Broadchurch named Best New Drama.
You’ll find a full list of winners at TV Choice, and in the new edition of the magazine.
Could the programme be in line for other awards in this anniversary year? BAFTA fellowship? Special Emmy? George Cross?
