Doctor Who and David Tennant both stood proud last night at the National Television Awards after the show and the actor won awards. Doctor Who won the award for Best Drama, having won it for the past four years. Meanwhile David Tennant won the award for Best Drama Performance for his portrayal of The Tenth Doctor . David Tennant was seen earlier on in the awards ceremony when he awarded Stephen Fry with the award for Star Travel Documentary. The ceremony was hosted by Dermot O' Leary and in the audience were the likes of Michael McIntyre, David Tennant, Piers Morgan, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell.

The award for Serial Drama Performance was won by Lacey Turner, whilst David Tennant obtained the award for Drama Performance. The award for Drama was won by Doctor Who, whilst the award for Serial Drama was achieved by Coronation Street for the first time since 2004. The Star Travel Documentary was won by Stephen Fry in America. Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway achieved the award for Most Popular Entertainment Programme with Ant and Dec winning the award for Most Popular Entertainment Presenter. The X Factor was crowned Most Popular Talent Show with Gavin & Stacey getting the award for Most Popular Comedy Programme. The award for Most Popular Factual Programme was won by Loose Women.

Doctor Who might have won the award for Best Drama this year but will it manage to get the award again next year? With a new head writer, new Doctor, new companion and new era for Doctor Who there is always the chance that it could all go wrong. Is that likely? Of course not!
