Best TV Show, Matt Smith for Best Actor, and Alex Kingston for Best Actress (beating co-star Karen Gillan). Writer Neil Gaiman received the Screenwriting Excellence Award for The Doctor's Wife.
SFX also launched the Elizabeth Sladen Award this year, which recognises contributions to children's sci-fi/fantasy, and it is apt that The Sarah Jane Adventures is the first recipient.

In other news, the actress Emma Watson has become the favoured successor to Gillan, in an online poll. announced it's results on Monday - Zooey Deschanel and Anna Friel polled in second and third place, whilst the top-ranked actor was John Boyega.
Another Harry Potter connection was reported this week, when Daniel Radcliffe ruled himself out of taking the lead role in David Yates' planned Doctor Who film. He said "that Matt Smith.. does a wonderful job" in the show.
