Neil Gaiman-penned Doctor Who episode ‘The Doctor’s Wife’ wins Nebula Award

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America have honored last year’s Doctor Who episode “The Doctor’s Wife” with the Ray Bradbury Award for Outstanding Dramatic Presentation. The story was written by acclaimed sci-fi author Neil Gaiman and directed by Richard Clark, and features the Doctor’s TARDIS vehicle taking humanoid form and finding new ways to communicate with the itinerant Time Lord.

Nominated in the same category were Attack the Block, Captain America: The First Avenger, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Source Code and The Adjustment Bureau. So, some pretty stiff competition, actually. A full list of Nebula Award winners can be found here. The awards, which date back to 1965, are given each year for best novel, novella, novelette, short story and script.

In response to the award, Gaiman tweeted:

(Lambert and Newman are the television producers who launched Doctor Who in 1963.)

“The Doctor’s Wife” also was recognized last month with a Hugo Award for best short-form dramatic presentation from members of the World Science Fiction Convention.
