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.
Commenting on the nominations, Doctor Who’s head writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, said, ‘For Doctor Who to receive three 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 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!
