It’s always nice to see our favorite show and it’s cast get recognized for the great work they do on the show. With all the extras involved like stunts and green screens, these aren’t just episodes of a sitcom or soapy drama they create, but complex mini-movies.
While we aren’t certain we’ve seen the last of Mr. Danny Pink, his story line does seem to have come to a bit of the end, with his sacrifice to save humanity. For the work Samuel Anderson did as Mr. Pink in series 8, he’s won the Best Male Performance on TV at the 10th annual Screen Nation Awards.
The Screen Nation Awards, sometimes referred to as the “black BAFTAs”, seek to honor the contributions to film television last year by persons of African heritage in the UK and across the globe.
Other notable winners this year were David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw for their performances in the movie Selma. The film also won an award for Favourite International Movie in the publicly voted on awards.
Samuel Anderson’s win was even tweeted out by the official Doctor Who Twitter account.
