Geektown Awards – British TV Show of the Year
Time to wave your Union Jacks as we come to the British TV Show of the Year category.

And the Gold goes to …
Winner: Doctor Who – BBC One
I think this probably shows a certain amount of bias by our readers, but hey… we’re called Geektown for a reason! Picking up its second gold award this year is ‘Doctor Who‘.
Following on from the history-altering Season 12 in January 2020, The Doctor returned on New Year’s Day finding herself dealing with an old foe, the Daleks. In the special, the Doctor’s best friends Yaz (Mandip Gill), Ryan (Tosin Cole) and Graham (Bradley Walsh) have to pick up their lives without her, as, following the events of last season, Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor began the special locked away in a space prison. However, when “the fam” discover a disturbing plan forming involving one of the Doctor’s most feared and dangerous enemies, Captain Jack (John Barrowman) stops by to lend a helping hand.
This episode marked the final appearance of Cole and Walsh as Ryan and Graham, whilst Yaz decided to stay on as The Doctor’s companion. They will be joined in Season 13 by actor/comedian John Bishop as a new companion “Dan”.
‘Doctor Who: Revolution of the Daleks’ special is currently on BBC iPlayer, and Season 13 of the show is due to arrive later this year.
