Voting is now open for the 15th TV Choice Awards, and Doctor Who has been nominated for Best Family Drama - the category it won last year.

The show will be up against spin-off series The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as its NTA adversary Waterloo Road; other shows in this category are Casualty, Holby City, Merlin, Primeval and Wild at Heart.

Matt Smith is nominated as Best Actor for Doctor Who; other nominees include former Doctors Christopher Eccleston for The Shadow Line and David Tennant for Single Father, plus Benedict Cumberbatch for Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss's new imagining of Sherlock (which itself is nominated in the Best New Drama category).

Co-star Karen Gillan has been nominated as Best Actress; Elisabeth Sladen is also in this category for The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as former sidekick Freema Agyeman for Law and Order: UK, and Alex Kingston for Marchlands.


Voting is open online until 10th June 2011, with the winners announced on 13th September.
