BBC News - Sherlock and Doctor Who head to head at National Television Awards

Sherlock and Doctor Who are up against each other for two prizes at the National Television Awards this month.
The shows - both run by writer and producer Steven Moffat - are up for best drama, along with Downtown Abbey and Merlin.
Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock, are in the running for the best actor prize.
Winners will be announced at London’s O2 Arena on 23 January.
Moffat said: “Well this is very flattering, but also terrifying. I hope everyone votes with tremendous care and the result is an exact draw between both shows.”
Karen Gillan, who bowed out last year as the Doctor’s companion Amy Pond, is nominated for the best female drama performance.
She is up against comedy star Miranda Hart for her role in Call The Midwife, Suranne Jones for Scott and Bailey and Sheridan Smith for Mrs Biggs, in which she played the wife of Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs.
In the best male drama performance category, Smith and Cumberbatch are up against Colin Morgan, the star of Merlin, and Daniel Mays for his performance as Ronnie Biggs in Mrs Biggs.

"This is a standalone story, but [it features] such a great relationship between a father and a son, along with all the monsters and the different stuff that Doctor Who brings to the table. But at its core, it’s this heartfelt, meaningful and moving story about the worries that fathers have about their sons."
