Doctor Who has been awarded a special institutional Peabody Award in the seventy-second annual competition that seeks to “recognize distinguished achievement and meritorious service by broadcasters, cable and Webcasters, producing organizations, and individuals.” Institutional Peabodys are presented to long-running programs.
In announcing the winners this morning, the Peabody Awards noted that Doctor Who is “seemingly immortal, 50-years-old and still running, this engaging, imaginative sci-fi/fantasy series is awarded an Institutional Peabody for evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe.”
Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in Doctor Who over the past fifty years!
Daniel is the owner and Managing Editor of Time and The – !. He's been a fan of Doctor Who since watching Tom Baker regenerate into Peter Davison on his local PBS station as a kid. He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)
