Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced and aired by the BBC. Originally shown from 1963 until 1989, but was revived in 2005.

In 26 years, its original 1963–1989 run won only two awards, a RTS Television Award and a Writer's Guild of Great Britain Award. However, the revived series has received recognition from critics and the public, winning many awards.

It has been nominated for a variety of different awards including 18 BAFTA TV Awards (five wins for the series), 16 Hugo Awards (5 wins), 7 Saturn Awards (a single win), 16 National Television Awards (14 wins), 5 Writer's Guild of Great Britain Awards (two wins), and a total of 23 awards from BBC itself (14 wins). Amongst the wins for the series are a BAFTA TV Award for Best Drama Series, the only Saturn Award for Best International Series, and five Hugo Awards for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. The series have received a record of 26 nominations in this last category in nine years only, making it the second television series in history after Star Trek to have more than two episodes nominated for a Hugo Award in a single year. Star Trek, the second most nominated series, only received 8 nominations overall.

One of the most critically acclaimed aspects of Doctor Who is its acting quality:[citation needed] Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith have all won awards playing the Doctor, while Billie Piper, Catherine Tate and Karen Gillan have won awards playing companions, and Carey Mulligan and Alex Kingston won awards playing supporting characters. Both Billie Piper and David Tennant have received awards; nine (in two years in the series) and sixteen (three regular years, two other years during special episodes) respectively. The series has earned a broad range of nominations including recognition of its writing quality and its visual effects.
