Sunday saw the 2011 BAFTA Cymru Awards Ceremony take place at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures were nominated for a number of awards, and unlike last weekend’s BAFTA Television Awards they did triumph in a number of categories.
The Children’s Programme award went to The Sarah Jane Adventures and its producer Brian Minchin for last year’s Death of the Doctor. Meanwhile, Doctor Who won two of its categories: Tim Rickett received the Sound award for his work on A Christmas Carol, whilst Mark Hutchingson won the Lighting award for The Eleventh Hour.
Other nominations included Music and Entertainment Programme, where Doctor Who at the Proms lost out to Young Musician 2010: The Final; Make Up and Hair sawSherlock’s Claire Pritchard Jones beat last year’s winner in this category, Barbara Southcott (nominated for Vampires of Venice); and William Oswald was nominated for Editing: Fiction for The Time of Angels, but the award eventually went to John Gillanders for The Indian Doctor.
Steven Moffat’s other show Sherlock did well at the Awards, winning five of the categories; as well as Make Up and Hair above, awards were given for Director of Photography: Fiction (Steve Lawes), Production Design (Arwel Wyn Jones), Director: Fiction (Euros Lyn), and the coveted Television Drama award.
