Great news to start off the year: both Doctor Who and Matt Smith have been nominated for National Television Awards!

The show itself is up for the Drama gong, while the Eleventh Doctor actor, who bowed out of the series at Christmas, is shortlisted in the Drama Peformance category.

Last year the Doctor Who cast and crew walked away empty handed and we don’t it to happen again, so head over to the website to support our Time Lord before voting closes!

This year’s ceremony will be shown live on ITV on Wednesday 22nd January at 7:30pm.

toptenofeleven-3-the-doctor-at-stonehenge

So far in our #TopTenOfEleven countdown we’ve seen the funny, the heartbreaking and the downright silly but in at #3 is a moment that truly is as epic as they come.

In The Pandorica Opens (2010) the Eleventh Doctor faced his darkest day yet as a menagerie of monsters gathered to finish him off once and for all..

He wasn’t going to go down without a fight as he took to Stonehenge to deliver a message to his alien adversaries.

Although ultimately being imprisoned forevermore inside the Pandorica (he has his good days and his bad days…), the showdown paved the way for one of his most epic scenes to date which is sure to go down in history as one of Matt Smith’s iconic Who moments. See the speech in question below and keep ‘em peeled for the reveal of our runner-up…

The BBC have released a third and final preview clip from The Time of the Doctor ahead of its premiere tomorrow.

In the latest teaser we are introduced to Tasha Lem, an old friend of the Doctor’s who was recently described as being “a bit of a loose canon” by Orla Brady, the actress who plays her. We can see why the Doctor likes her, then!

There certainly seems to be a spark between them but just what is their history? Not long until we find out…
