BREAKING NEWS! Doctor Who has been awarded an Institutional Peabody Award this year!
For those who don’t know, the Peabody is the world’s first and most prestigious award for broadcasting and electronic media. From the website:
The George Foster Peabody Awards recognize distinguished achievement and meritorious service by broadcasters, cable and Webcasters, producing organizations, and individuals. The awards program is administered by the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. Selection is made each spring by the Peabody Board, a 16-member panel of distinguished academics, television critics, industry practitioners and experts in culture and the arts.
Doctor Who (and BBC/Cymru Wales) has apparently won the award because:
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.
Or, you know the WHOLE Universe! 😉 Yeah, that sounds about right.
CONGRATULATIONS to Doctor Who, as well as to all the other Peabody winners this year! (especially Girls!)
