Drama: 

In the Drama Category, there is Doctor Who but it has very strong competition from several other programme starring former and future Doctors and companions.   Competing against Doctor Who, is Jodie Whittaker’s Trust Me, Matt Smith’s The Crown, Jenna Coleman’s Victoria and Mandip Gill’s The Good Karma Hospital.  Stiff competition for our favourite Time Lord.

Drama Performance: 

Next is of course the Drama Performance Category.  This one is a who’s who of Doctor Who with  Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), Jodie Whittaker (Trust Me / Broadchurch)and David Tennant (Broadchurch) all receiving nominations.  As well as the list of Doctors, former companions Pearl Mackie and Jenna Coleman are nominated for their roles in Doctor Who and Victoria respectively.  Another difficult choice for voters.
