Monday Monday

Mutterings continued.

Nice weather, huge plume of smoke coming from the direction of the hills in the east.

The BBC's Doctor Who and Bleak House have triumphed at the British Academy Television Awards.

They each won two awards at the London ceremony, including best drama series for Doctor Who, and best drama serial.

Doctor Who's Billie Piper, who plays the Time Lord's sidekick Rose Tyler, accepted the award for best drama series on stage with a dalek.

The BBC One programme also took the Pioneer Audience Award, which was voted for by TV viewers, which Piper described as "a treat".

Speaking afterwards, Doctor Who writer Russell T Davis said: "It's lovely, it's gobsmacking, it's a programme that children watch and the family watch."

BBC Four political comedy The Thick Of It took the award for best sitcom, along with best comedy performance for Chris Langham.

Langham said: "If it wasn't for the fact that she hates having attention drawn to her I would like to thank my wife for being the most loyal, constant and honourable friend a person could have."

He added: "I'm deeply grateful, it [the award] really means a lot to me."

Hurray for Chris Langham! Hurray for Russell T Davis!
