Doctor Who has been nominated in two categories in the BAFTA Cymru Awards for 2013, it was announced today.

The programme's sound team are jointly up for the Sound gong, facing competition from Bang Post Production for Sherlock - co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss - and from the sound team for The Gospel of Us.

In addition, William Oswald is in the running for the Editing award for his work on the 2012 Christmas special The Snowmen.

Meanwhile, Michael Sheen is nominated for the Actor title for The Gospel of Us, and Ruth Jones and Sara Lloyd-Gregory are both vying for the Actress award for, respectively, Stella and Alys. Brian Minchin - appointed in April as an executive producer on Doctor Who - is cited for Wizards vs Aliens, co-created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford, in the Children's Programme (Including Animation) category, with Arwel Wyn Jones receiving two nominations for Production Design for his work on Sherlock and Wizards vs Aliens. In addition, Ray Holman is nominated for Costume Design for Wizards vs Aliens.

Doctor Who failed to make the Television Drama category this year, having been nominated last year but ultimately losing out on the title.

The 22nd annual awards will be held on Sunday 29th September at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, with the winners announced at a ceremony hosted by Sian Lloyd and Matt Johnson. The nominations cover 26 programme, craft, and performance categories, recognising excellence in broadcasting and production within film and television in Wales between 1st January 2012 and 31st March 2013.
