Doctor Who Nominated in TV Choice Awards 2019

Doctor Who, and the Doctor herself, have both been nominated for TV Choice Awards, with voting now open.

Jodie Whittaker is up for Best Actress, and faces competition from Jenna Coleman, Morven Christie, Hermoine Norris, Helen McCrory, Keeley Hawes, Anne Reid, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Sheridan Smith, to name but a few!

Doctor Who, meanwhile, is in the running for Best Family Drama, but has to beat shows like The Durrells (written by Simon Nye), Father Brown, Red Rock, and Call the Midwife.

Elsewhere, Russell T Davies’ A Very English Scandal and Years and Years are nominated for Best New Drama, as is the John Simm-led show, Strangers; Neil Cross’ Luther for Best Drama Series, alongside Victoria, starring Jenna Coleman; Lee Mack’s Not Going Out for Best Comedy; and Pointless, with Alexander Armstrong, for Best Daytime Show.

Martin Clunes, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Iain Glen, Mark Benton, Alfred Enoch, Ardal O’Hanlon, John Simm, and Russell Tovey are all up for Best Actor.

The awards are voted for by the public, via the TV Choice Awards website or the in-magazine form. This longlist is whittled down into a shortlist in late June, before voting reopens. The winners will be announced on 9th September 2019 at a ceremony at the Hilton, London.
