British sci-fi stalwart Doctor Who picked up the Radio Times Audience Award at last nights BAFTA’s for the 50th anniversary episode The Day of The Doctor.
The show has never had much luck when it comes to the BAFTA awards over the years, and it seems as though the makers had given up hope. It was up to the director and two producers to pick up the award, with Matt Smith, David Tennant or even Steven Moffat no-where to be seen.
Unfortunately the Mark Gatiss penned An Adventure in Space and Time, a drama focusing on the creation of Doctor Who, failed to win in the Single Drama category.
But still it’s excellent to see Doctor Who picking up at least one award, and for all the joy, sadness, thrills and fun, I’d say The Day of the Doctor more than deserves it’s award.
