Doctor Who Nominated For Hugo Awards

The nominations for this year's science-fiction related Hugo Awards, and Doctor Who-related programmes have received four nominations!

Series 7 finale The Name of the Doctor, 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor and special Peter Davison-directed spoof The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot all received nominations in the Best Dramatic Presentation - Short Form category, alongside origins drama An Adventure in Space in Time, making four out of five nominations for Doctor Who in the Short Form category!

Steven Moffat stated of the nominations:
‘For Doctor Who to receive three [excluding An Adventure in Space and Time]  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.’
The Hugo Awards will be held on 17 August.
