Awards for Doctor Who and The Waters of Mars

Doctor Who has won Best Family Drama by the TV Choice Awards 2010. Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Steven Moffat (Lead Writer and Executive Producer) were there in person at the ceremony Monday evening hosted by Alexander Armstrong (voice of "Mr. Smith" on The Sarah Jane Adventures).

This comes on the heels of another award granted to Doctor Who, this time a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) for last year's Doctor Who special, The Waters of Mars(Amazon US link).

Out of the handful of Doctor Who specials transmitted last year, I enjoyed Waters most.

Paul Cornell was at the Hugo Awards ceremony presenting an award.

Congratulations all around!
