‘Doctor Who’s Day Roundup: BAFTAs, Ukes & Comic Books

Well, if this doesn’t prove that Doctor Who has the most loyal, active and passionate fanbase in the business, what will? At Sunday’s BAFTA TV awards, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor” won the Radio Times Audience Award, the only trophy of the night that is voted by the public.
Doctor Who faced stiff opposition from enormously popular shows like Breaking Bad, Gogglebox, The Great British Bake-Off and Broadchurch (which won three awards, and is basically a sibling show anyway, given that four of its stars—David Tennant, Arthur Darvill,David Bradley and Olivia Colman—have all made high-profile appearances in the show and it was written by Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who and Torchwood script writer). But in the end, the combination of Matt Smith, David Tennant AND John Hurt, with that little extra kick from Tom Baker at the end, was enough to secure a comfortable win.
Doctor Who executive producer Faith Penhale, who accepted the award with director Nick Hurran and producer Marcus Wilson, told Radio Times that it was a “really, really special moment for the show.” (x)
