Doctor Who scoops awards; Torchwood triumphs

David Tennant, Billie Piper in Doctor WhoThe second season of Doctor Who's latest regeneration, starring David Tennant and Billie Piper (currently airing Fridays on the US SciFi Channel) has repeated the success of the first season, by winning three prestigious UK National Television Awards.

The show took the awards for Most Popular Drama, Most Popular Actor and Most Popular Actress, following a viewers' poll.

"I think if my eight-year-old self could see me at the Royal Albert Hall winning a prize for playing the Doctor on telly, he would need a stiff shot of Irn-Bru," Tennant told the BBC after collecting his award from Dame Julie Andrews.

Meanwhile, the show's adult spin-off 'Torchwood' launched on 22 October on digital channel BBC3 with an audience of 2.4 million – the largest-ever non-sport audience for a home-produced multi-channel show.
