Jane Tranter Wins Special Academy Award

By Mark
This year's British Academy Television Awards took place last night at the Royal Festival Hall in London and unfortunately, Doctor Who or Einstein and Eddington didn't win the awards in the categories they were nominated for. Jane Tranter, who has worked on Doctor Who ever since it's revival in 2005, did however receive the 'Special Award' and David Tennant presented her with this trophy of recognition. You can view the presentation of the award and a short interview with them both below;

The special award is presented to those who have given an outstanding creative contribution to the television industry and previous winners include; Beryl Vertue, Paul Greengrass, Adam Curtis and Andy Harries. Jane Tranter was one the people who oversaw Doctor Who's revival four years ago and you can view more information about her career here on the official website for the British Academy Television Awards. I'd like to take this time to congratulate Jane on her success, Doctor Who and Einstein and Eddington for their nominations and all of the other nominees and winners for their recognition. Michelle Ryan and Lindsay Duncan also presented awards at last night's ceremony and you can view a list of this year's winners here.
