Doctor Who Shortlisted For TV Choice Awards 2017

Doctor Who has made the voting shortlist for this year's TV Choice Awards.

The show features in the Best Family Drama category alongside fellow BBC One shows Call the Midwife and Casualty and ITV's The Durrells.

Former Doctor David Tennant is up for Best Actor for his role in Broadchurch, with the show itself up for Best Drama Series. Meanwhile, Matt Smith's The Crown takes on Jenna Coleman's Victoria for Best New Drama.

Doctor Who has a strong track record for reaching the TV Choice Awards shortlist but has sadly been less successful at picking up wins in recent years, most recently being awarded the Best Drama Series and Outstanding Contribution awards in its 50th anniversary year of 2013.

Voting for the shortlist is now open at the TV Choice Awards site, and will close on Friday 7th July.

The winners of this year's TV Choice Awards will be announced at a ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel on Monday 4th September 2017, hosted by Pointless co-presenter Richard Osman.
