BBC’s Doctor Who will be celebrated at Sunday’s Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, in recognition of the programme’s 50th anniversary this year.
A special celebratory video montage featuring the show’s long history will be included as part of the ceremony, and Jenna Coleman – the Doctor’s companion – will present one of the night’s awards.
“Everyone wants to know, ‘Has your life changed since joining the show?’” Coleman said over a lunch of baby beets and tangerine at downtown Los Angeles’ Lazy Ox Canteen. “And I’m like, ‘No, not really.’ I just go to Cardiff, and I do mad things and experience mad stuff on set, and then I come back to my London life, which suddenly seems more boring because I’ve been blasting Cybermen.”
“It’s normally me being like, ‘What? Why? How?’” Coleman said, chuckling. “I’m more of the audience asking, and Matt has the dialogue and the jargon. I’m very much the human.”
