David Tennant wins a Special Recognition award at the 2015 NTAs (Credit: National Television Awards/ITV)Former Doctor David Tennant was the recipient of an award for Special Recognition at the United Kingdom's National Television Awards ceremomy that took place last night in London. The very emotional actor thanked the many people he had worked with, including his agents, and summed up with:
Anyone who’s ever given me a shot, thank you very much, and anyone who’s ever let me into their living room on the telly, it's a real honour and a privilege to get to do that, so thank you!
He also thanked his family and in particular his father, to whom he then dedicated his award.

This is Tennant's fifth NTA award, having received ones for best Actor in 2006 and 2007, and then for Drama Performance in 2008 and 2010.

Doctor Who, which has won a number of awards over the course of its ten years back on air and regained the best Drama title last year, lost out this time to Downton Abbey. The full list of winners over the years can be found via the NTA website.
