Big Finish has won the BBC Audio Award for Best Online or Non-Broadcast Audio Drama for Doctor Who: Dark Eyes (reviewed here). The award was presented by Lenny Henry at a ceremony in London on Sunday January 26th at the Radio Theatre, Broadcasting House.
The awards are designed to recognise the cultural importance of audio drama in any form (online or on air) and this year there were more than 180 entries. The awards are intended to give recognition to all who work in the genre including actors, writers, producers and sound designers. Big Finish shared its category with Hood: Noble Secrets and Trimble.
Dark Eyes was originally released in November 2012 and was written and directed by Nick Briggs who was at the awards ceremony with producer David Richardson and Jason Haigh-Ellery (Executive Producer). Dark Eyes is an Eighth Doctor story in four parts starring Paul McGann and also features Ruth Bradley (Primeval) as his companion Molly O’Sullivan.
The timing is particularly apt as Dark Eyes 2 will be released next month.
For more information check out the Big Finish website, there’s also a sale running until the 28th of January to mark the award.
