The Pandorica Opens the Hugos
As Matt Smith welcomes Doctor Who‘s latest award - the 2010 Hugo for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form) - let us congratulate writer Steven Moffat, director Toby Haynes and the entire Doctor Who team responsible for The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, which was the winning story, beating out a couple of other episodes from Doctor Who in 2010 (A Christmas Carol and Vincent and the Doctor) and a couple of non-Who related productions. Although some have questioned the significance of these awards, Doctor Who‘s fifth win in the past six years is still nothing to be ashamed of (quite the opposite in fact). And it wasn’t the only win for Doctor Who - Chicks Dig Time Lords - a fan-authored publication celebrating Doctor Who by female fans (and Robert Smith?) also won for Best Related Work - congratulations as well to all those involved in that worthy publication.
