Geektown Awards – Best Limited Series & Final Season 2023

In the last categories for tonight (more tomorrow),  we have Best Limited Series, and Best Final Season of a show. The latter is a new category for this year as we realised a lot of shows had ended this year and we wanted to find a way to celebrate them. There have also been some astounding limited series in 2023, from time-travelling murder mysteries to tense plane drama and true crime, there was something for everyone to enjoy. Here are the results.

Best Limited Series

Nominees: Archie – ITVX; Beef – Netflix; Bodies – Netflix; Crowded Room – Apple TV+; Doctor Who, 60th Anniversary Specials – BBC One; Hijack – Apple TV+;Litvinenko – ITVX/ITV; Nolly – ITV; The Continental – Prime Video; The Fall of the House of Usher – Netflix;The Reckoning – BBC One; The Sixth Commandment – BBC One; White House Plumbers – Sky Atlantic

Bronze: The Fall of the House of Usher – Netflix

Silver: Bodies – Netflix

Gold Winner: Doctor Who, 60th Anniversary Specials – BBC

Whilst Netflix did manage to pick up the bronze and silver, I don’t think it will come as a shock to anyone that they could not budge the return of David Tennant, Catherine Tate… and Neil Patrick Harris dancing to the Spice Girls… in the ‘Doctor Who, 60th Anniversary Specials’. From adapting a beloved comic strip in “The Star Beast”, to a wonderful two-hander in “Wild Blue Yonder”, to a spectacular finish in “The Giggle”, all three episodes showed heart and soul and laid some wonderful groundwork for the arrival of Ncuti Gatwa’s Fifteenth Doctor, and his brilliant Christmas special. Russell T Davies’ return to ‘Doctor Who’ proves it is where he is supposed to be right now, and we can’t wait to see where he takes the show next when Ncuti returns next year.

Best Final Season


Nominees: Atlanta, Season 4 – Disney+; Barry, Season 4 – Sky Comedy; Billions, Season 7 – Sky Atlantic; Breeders, Season 4 – Sky Comedy; Ghosts, Season 5 – BBC One; Happy Valley, Season 3 – BBC One; Manifest, Season 4 – Netflix; NCIS: LA, Season 14 – Sky Max; Servant, Season 4 – Apple TV+; Sex Education, Season 4 – Netflix; Star Trek: Picard, Season 3 – Prime Video/Paramount+; Succession, Season 4 – Sky Atlantic; Ted Lasso, Season 3 – Apple TV+; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Season 5 – Prime Video

Bronze: Star Trek: Picard, Season 3 – Prime Video/Paramount+

Silver: Ghosts (UK), Season 5 – BBC

Gold Winner: Happy Valley, Season 3 – BBC

‘Star Trek: Picard’ takes bronze as the show which finally got it right in its last season by doing what it should have done in the first place, and ‘Ghosts’ didn’t make the top spot this time it did land the silver. However, it is the gut-wrenching final season of Happy Valley which takes the gold. After a seven-year gap, Sally Wainwright’s spectacular crime drama returned for a final season in February, and fans could not wait to see how it would conclude… and they were not disappointed. Sergeant Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) discovered the remains of a gangland murder victim, sparking a chain of events that unwittingly led her straight back to murderer and rapist Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton)…

If you’re wondering where you can catch Wainwright’s work next, get yourself an Apple TV+ subscription, as her new show, Renegade Nell‘, is set to land on that streaming service in 2024. The BBC has also ordered a new series from the creator called Hot Flush, which is set to film next year.
