Doctor Who Nominated for Two BAFTA Awards

Steven Moffat won a BAFTA "Special Award" in 2012. 
The BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) has nominated Doctor Who for two of its prestigious awards.

Musical composer Murray Gold was nominated in the Original Television Music category for his, as the ninth Doctor would say, "fantastic" music score featured in the Series 7 episode, Asylum of the Daleks. This is the second time Murray Gold has been nominated for a BAFTA award.

The show was also nominated for a BAFTA in the Visual Effects and Graphic Design category. The Mill, which has recently announced it will be closing, was nominated for the wonderful Craft Visual Effects it has created in their recent episodes.

The Mill has been nominated for a BAFTA every year since 2007. They received a BAFTA in 2009 for their work in The Fires of Pompeii.

Other Doctor Who related BAFTA awards include the Editing Fiction award in 2008, The Television Drama Series in 2005, and the Craft Writer award went to Steven Moffat in 2007.

The 2013 BAFTA awards will take place on the 28th of April in London, England. The Combom team wishes both nominees the best of luck!
