Last year the Doctor Who series received a Hugo Award for the double episode “The Empty Child”/”The Doctor Dances” . The award was for the best short dramatic presentation (less than 90 minutes).
The episodes were written by Steven Moffat, and are among my favorites from the new Doctor Who series.
They have done it again …
This year’s Hugo award for the best short dramatic presentation was awarded the Doctor Who episode “The Girl in the Fireplace” – also writen by Steven Moffat – and also one of my personal favorites.
The same TV series receiving Hugo awards for two years in a row is quite rare – the last time I know of was when the “Babylon 5” series did that in the 90’s.
It will be interesting to see if The Doctor can make it to a third consecutive award….
