Fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock and British television in general have a lot to celebrate. The UK’s National Television Awards, which are voted on by British television viewers, were handed out on Wednesday night.

Doctor Who scored big in two categories. First, the winning the Most Popular Drama award. Other series nominated for the award included Broadchurch (which stars former Doctor David Tennant), and Downton Abbey (take that, snotty American fans of British TV!)

Most Popular Drama Performance went to the outgoing portrayer of The Doctor,  Matt Smith. Sadly, Smith was absent from the awards ceremony, as he was performing in the West End musical version of American Psycho. (One gig was going to pay him to show up, one wasn't. You do the math.) He did, however, provide provide a thank thank you video to the British viewers that voted for him via video.

Smith's award was accepted on stage by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffatt and his former co-star Jenna Coleman.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch also took home an award for “Radio Times TV Detective,” beating out Broadchurch’s Tennant and Luther’s Idris Elba. Cumberbatch also wasn't at the ceremony, but accepted the award via video from Los Angeles.
