For the second year running Doctor Who has won three prizes at the National Television Awards.
The series and Billie Piper repeated their 2005 success by winning the most popular drama and most popular actress while David Tennant scooped the most popular actor award which his predecessor Christopher Eccleston won last year.
Collecting his award from Dame Julie Andrews Tennant said: “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” adding “I’m really chuffed…It’s been really daunting to come into something that was such a huge success.”
The National Television Awards are voted for by the viewing public. The ceremony will be broadcast on ITV tomorrow – 1st November.
