Last year, we welcomed seven real-life creators into our inaugural Doctor Who Creator Hall of Fame. And now it’s time to add to that number in another round of worthy inductees.
But first we have to decide on who that’s going to be. The first step is nominations.
Who is eligible? Well, basically anyone who has ever worked on Doctor Who in any sort of professional behind-the-scenes capacity, whether that is the TV show (naturally) or Big Finish audios, novels, comics, or whatever. So that could be writers, directors, actors, producers, musicians, designers, artists…whatever.
The only professional Doctor Who creators who we can’t nominate this year are the following stalwarts: Tom Baker, Russell T. Davies, William Hartnell, Verity Lambert, Steven Moffat, Elisabeth Sladen and David Tennant. Why are they excluded? Simply because they were last year’s inductees, so they are already in the Hall of Fame. See here for tributes about them each.
How can you nominate? Any number of ways! You can add a comment at the end of this post, or you can email me at email@example.com. If you can find me on any of the number of Doctor Who Facebook groups that I’m part of, you can comment there when I share this link. Or you can find the Reddit post I’ll inevitably make eventually.
In the meantime, I’m going to share my nominations here. I’m picking ten people, but you can feel free to nominate as many as you’d like. Everyone who gets at least two nominations will go onto the ballot (unless we get, say, more than 50 nominations, and then I’ll set the bar higher).
So, my picks…
Wow! There’s some worthy contenders on that there list, and a lot more that I haven’t mentioned.
So…who do you want to nominate? Let me know!
