Doctor Who win big at the 2011 SFX Awards

Doctor Who have won in 5 categories at the 2011 SFX Awards.

Matt Smith beat ex Dcotor David Tennant to 'Best Actor'. Smith told SFX:
"Thank you so much to the readers of SFX for voting for me. I’m really proud to have won this award and it’s amazing to receive such fantastic support from fans of the show. I’d also like to thank the team at SFX who have continued to produce brilliant coverage on the show – the magazine’s 3D lenticular cover last April was incredible and a real highlight for everyone involved in Doctor Who."

Karen Gillan won 'Best Actress'. She told SFX:
"Wooah! I really wasn’t expecting that! I’m completely honoured that the cool cats who read SFX have voted me best actress! Basically I’m trying to say thanks to each and every reader who took the time to vote. I would also like to thank the Doctor Who production team who work so hard every day to make this show a success. And a big thank you to Matt and Arthur for making the TARDIS team such fun to be in.

"We are back on your screens this spring with some seriously scary stuff going down. So look out…."


The show won 'Best TV Show' - which was accepted by Steven Moffat (see a video of his acceptance speech below) - and the 'Sci-Fi Phenomenon Award'.

Other awards for Doctor Who went to Character Options for their Eleven Doctors action figure set, which won 'Best Collectable, Model Or Toy'. Russell Tovey (Midshipman Alonso Frame, Voyage of the Damned and The End of Time, Part Two) won the 'SFX Cult Hero'.

Vincent And The Doctor
