Doctor Who Nominated in British Fantasy Awards

BBC Doctor Who

Doctor Who up for inaugural award.

Doctor Who has been nominated in the Best Television category in the British Fantasy Awards, 2009.
This is a new category although the awards have been presented by the British Fantasy Society (BFS) since 1971. Winners are voted for by members of the society and attendees of its convention, FantasyCon.
Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale by Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook has also been nominated for an award in the Best Non-Fiction category.
Guy Adams, the Chair of the BFS, told us, 'I think it's important to have a set of awards that are voted for by the fantasy audience rather than a committee... Awards like these mean a great deal to the recipients because they know they represent a global opinion of what the best of the best is in any given year. Because of that, the BFAs have a kudos to them that's hard to beat.'
The winners will be announced in September and you can find out more about the awards at the BFS site. Aside from his work with the society, Guy Adams is an author whose novels include Torchwood: The House that Jack Built. We caught up with Guy and in a brief but revealing interview he talked to us about the awards, Doctor Who and his love of a bunch of people shouting at one another in a little room...
