BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 04/19/2014 - 3:23pm
The Name of the Doctor, The Day of the Doctor and The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot have all been nominated for this year’s Hugo Awards.
All three have been nominated in the ‘Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form’ category and the winners will be announced on 17 August at the 2014 Hugo Awards ceremony. The Name of the Doctor was written by Steven Moffat and directed by Saul Metzstein and The Day of the Doctor, also penned by Steven Moffat, was directed by Nick Hurran. The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot was written and directed by Peter Davison and featured a number of well-known faces from the world of Doctor Who including Steven Moffat, several former Doctors and Jenna Coleman.
Commenting on the nominations, Doctor Who’s head writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, said, ‘For Doctor Who to receive four Hugo nominations in its anniversary year is completely thrilling. We are all over the moon. I’m particularly pleased about The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot as that was my acting debut. I remain available for any parts requiring a black jumper and slightly unrealistic hair.’
We’re also delighted that An Adventure in Space and Time – the one-off drama written by Mark Gatiss that examined the origins of Doctor Who - also received a nomination in the ‘Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form’ category. And ‘The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who’, written by Paul Cornell and illustrated by Jimmy Broxton, was nominated in the Best Graphic Story field.
The prestigious Hugo Awards, presented annually since 1955, are named after Hugo Gernsback, founder of the influential science fiction magazine, Amazing Stories. Best of luck to all this year’s nominees!
