DOCTOR WHO Triumphs at National TV Awards

For those of us in America who might have missed the big news, DOCTOR WHO and Matt Smith walked away with a couple of major awards at Britain’s National Television Awards on Wednesday night.

Smith claimed the Best Drama Performance award over Maggie Smith (DOWNTON ABBEY), Martin Clunes (DOC MARTIN) and Miranda Hart (CALL THE MIDWIFE). Yes, apparently the categories were co-ed. Executive producer Steven Moffat and co-star Jenna Coleman (Clara) accepted on Smith’s behalf, because he was at a West End theater, where he is starring in the play American Psycho — but the former Doctor did record a video acceptance message from backstage:

The show itself, DOCTOR WHO, won the Best Drama gong over BROADCHURCH, DOWNTON ABBEY and CALL THE MIDWIFE. The last time the show won was back in 2010. Coleman also accepted this award, saying:

“Fifty years and still going strong. Well done WHO!  I think this award absolutely belongs to the team, the cast and crew who are grafting away in Cardiff as we speak. The genius and mastermind that is Moff, and of course Matt Smith. Thanks to everyone who voted.”

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
