Midnight's Royal Television Society Award

By Mark
Midnight, the tenth episode of Doctor Who series four, recently won an award at this year’s Royal Television Society Craft and Design Awards. It won the award for “Best Sound in Drama" and competed against two other shows which were; Criminal Minds and The Street. Julie Gardner, one of Doctor Who’s executive producers, recently spoke to Doctor Who Magazine about the sound department’s success;

"We're all so proud that the magnificent work of the Sound Department has been recognised at last. This episode pushed them right to the limit, using techniques that simply won't be called for on many other dramas, and it's wonderful to see their work being recognised by their peers. And I have to say, it's probably a unique event, for a drama recorded in basically one small room, to win an award for the quality of it's sound. That department does brilliant work on every single episode, and it's about time they were honoured! And out thanks and congratulations to the director of that episode. Alice Troughton, who worked so closely with the sound team, as well as the cast, who gave everything to make the story work."

Midnight is written by Russell T Davies and sounds in the episode were constructed by the sound department that work on Doctor Who. Murray Gold also wrote music for the episode which is available for purchase now as part of the Doctor Who series four soundtrack. I’d just like to take this time to congratulate the sound department that work on Doctor Who and everyone else involved.
