Best New Premium Channel Series

Arrow

Sky One’s DC character, formally known as Green Arrow, is a fan favourite, with much cajoling going on to get him featured in the forthcoming Justice League movie.

 

Best New Series

Under The Dome

A surprise hit for Channel 5 last Summer, but will they pick up the forthcoming second season?

 

Best Returning Premium Channel Series

Fringe

Sky One’s simultaneous broadcast with the Stateside transmission of the show’s final episode in the early hours of the morning showed how fervent the fanbase is for this series.

 

Best Returning Series

Doctor Who

Arguably, Matt Smith’s final run of episodes were among his best.

 

BEST Special/Mini Series

Battlestar Galactica - Blood and Chrome

The fans wanted this to go to series, the American network bosses weren’t convinced.

 

Best Repeat Series

The Saint

Roger Moore’s adventures have become a star attraction weekday afternoons on ITV4.

 

Show They Should Not Have Cancelled

Breaking Bad

Although impossible to find on conventional broadcast television, subscription or not, Walter’s adventures became addictive viewing for those who found the show.

 

Best Guest Appearance

Diana Rigg (Doctor Who)

The travelling Time Lord declared to the former Mrs Peel that she was needed, and as Mrs Gillyflower, alongside her daughter Rachael Stirling as Ada, ensured the episode “The Crimson Horror” from writer Mark Gatiss was a fine episode of Doctor Who.

 

Breakout PerformancE

Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow)

Emily plays Felicity Smoak, the IT girl at Queen Consolidated who has become part of Oliver Queen's vigilante team.

 

BEST NEW Title Sequence

Elementary

The American contemporary take on the Sherlock legend stars Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as Holmes and Watson. The credits portray one huge mousetrap-style contraption, one which would make Dr Emmet Brown of “Back to the Future” fame very proud.

 

DVD/BLU-RAY PRESENTATION

Doctor Who – The Ice Warriors (2Entertain)

The six part Patrick Troughton-era story, where two of six episodes had to be animated as only the soundtracks are believed at present to exist of them, allows the story to be viewed in its entirety once more. The later finds of nine episodes from Troughton’s “Enemy of the World” and “The Web of Fear” will no doubt be in people’s minds for next year’s Awards.

 

CULT PERSONALITY

Charlie Brooker

Charlie is back on our televisions on Thursdays, with Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe, from 10.00pm on BBC2.

 

HALL OF FAME - SERIES

The Twilight Zone

Rod Serlings’ masterpiece of anthology TV, which ran from 1959 to 1964, finally makes our Hall of Fame.

 

HALL OF FAME - ACTOR

William Hartnell

In Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary year, it is very appropriate that the actor that created the character finally gets into Cult TV’s Hall of Fame.

 

HALL OF FAME - ACTRESS

Caroline John

Another nod in Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary year that Jon Pertwee’s first companion, and one of the most intelligent, gets the support of voters to enter the pantheon.

 

HALL OF FAME - DIRECTOR

Barry Letts

Very few people can legitimately be considered for the Hall of Fame Director, Writer and Producer, and now Doctor Who stalwart Barry Letts is voted into the Hall in a trio of categories.

 
HALL OF FAME - PRODUCER

Reg Hill

The third element of Group Three Productions which also consisted of Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson, and who were together throughout the days of APF and Century 21, Reg Hill is very much the unsung hero of productions such as Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and UFO.

 

HALL OF FAME - WRITER

John Sullivan

John was the creator and writer of a whole host of comedies, the pinnacle of which was ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES. Other productions he was responsible for include ROGER ROGER, THE GREEN GREEN GRASS, HEARTBURN HOTEL, JUST GOOD FRIENDS, DEAR JOHN and CITIZEN SMITH. He died in April 2011, aged just 64.

 

HALL OF FAME - HERO

Napoleon Solo (Man from UNCLE)

Robert Vaughn’s character from the series that ran from 1964 to 1968. Henry Cavill will take over the role in a Guy Ritchie-helmed movie currently in production.

 

HALL OF FAME - VILLAIN

Francis Urquhart (House of Cards - Original)

Ian Richardson’s Machiavellian character confided in the audience in not only 1990's House of Cards but also the sequels To Play The King and The Final Cut. The character has been revived and sent to the USA in the new series of the same name, with Kevin Spacey playing the renamed Frank Underwood.

 

HALL OF FAME - SPECIAL EFFECTS

Steven Begg (Terrahawks, New Captain Scarlet)

Steven’s big break was with Gerry Anderson on the productions Terrahawks and Space Precinct. He has since followed in the footsteps of fellow Anderson stalwart Derek Meddings by helming the Visual Effects on the James Bond franchise, including the likes of Casino Royale and Skyfall. He has also worked on the Lara Croft and Batman franchises.

 

HALL OF FAME - COSTUMES

Alun Hughes (The Avengers, Doctor Who)

Alan was the Wardrobe Designer for the latter Diana Rigg and complete Linda Thorson eras of The Avengers, and contributed to the Doctor Who story “Timelash” as well as a whole host of other BBC productions including “Sorry” and “Tucker’s Luck”.

 

HALL OF FAME - ANIMATED CHARACTER

Brian Griffin (Family Guy)

Trying to keep this commentary spoiler-free, suffice is to say the producers of “Family Guy” underestimated the huge appeal of the family dog, Brian, and have had to backtrack on plans to recast his role.

 

HALL OF FAME - ADVERT

R Whites (Secret Lemonade Drinker)

Musician Ross MacManus, the father of singer Elvis Costello, composed and sang I'm A Secret Lemonade Drinker. The classic ad sees a man in striped pyjamas - played by Julian Chagrin - creeping downstairs for a midnight drink while singing the song. The commercial first aired in 1973 and ran for nearly nine years.

 

HALL OF FAME - TV MUSIC

Edwin Astley (The Saint, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), Department S)

One of the rock gods of Lew Grade’s ITC canon of shows, it was more a question of which themes he didn’t write from the action adventures put into production by the company. His induction into the Hall of Fame for TV music is long overdue.

 

HALL OF SHAME - WORST LINE OF DIALOGUE

 “I wish I had a little boy of my own that would help me. Oh, I've a wonderful idea. I'll make a toy-boy” (Mr Bumbledrop, Torchy the Battery Boy “Pom-Pom and the Toys”)

 

HALL OF SHAME - CONTINUITY CLANGER

Geordi La Forge still wearing his uniform from the alternate timeline, in Ten Forward at the end of the episode (Star Trek: The Next Generation “Yesterday’s Enterprise”)

 

HALL OF SHAME - WORST SPECIAL EFFECT

Korob and Sylvia, the blue and yellow stickbug aliens (Star Trek “Catspaw”)
