Doctor Who has been nominated for Best Drama in the final round of the 2015 National Television Awards.

The show is up against its fellow Cardiff produced rival Sherlock as well as period stalwart Downton Abbey and the Cilla Black bio-pic Cilla.

The star of Cilla, former Big Finish actress Sheridan Smith has been nominated for Best Drama Performance, however no actors from Doctor Who made the shortlist this year.

The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine is published this week, and features an interview with Jenna Coleman, during which she discusses the loves and lives of Clara Oswald:

DWM asks Jenna if the Doctor and Clara can finally move on in their relationship – and after the sacrifice of Danny Pink, can things ever be the same again? “I think so,” Jenna says. “But they are a bit addicted to each other, and to the dynamic that they share. It’s getting so that one can’t go without the other, and I think that’s definitely what Clara’s realised. In a way that’s quite dangerous now, because she realises that there is no going back for her…”

The siege of Trenzalore went on for hundreds of years – and an upcoming audiobook will recall four of the countless battles that went on in and around the town called Christmas.

Tales of Trenzalore was originally released as an ebook before getting a physical release. Now, the four short stories will be read by David Troughton, son of the Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton. Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor had quite a few similarities to the so-called ‘cosmic hobo’ so that should sound right.

Tales of Trenzalore sees the return of classic foes, the Ice Warriors (in Let It Snow), the Krynoid (An Apple A Day), Autons (Strangers in the Outland), and the Mara (The Dreaming). Here’s the official synopsis:

As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction – the Doctor. For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.

He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it remains shrouded in mystery and darkness.

Until now.

This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid – and of the one man who was not.

The four short stories are written by Justin Richards, George Mann, Paul Finch, and Mark Morris – all of them well-versed in the Whoniverse!

The audiobook of Tales of Trenzalore is released on 19th February 2015, and is available to pre-order from Amazon UK for £25.00.
