Neil Gaiman’s debut Doctor Who episode The Doctor’s Wife, and the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones were honoured at the Hugo Awards, which were held on September 2 at Chicon 7 in Chicago, with Gaiman hinting that he may be working on another episode. “…Only a fool or a mad man would try to do it again… so I’m on the third draft,” he commented.
Jo Walton’s novel Among Others, Kij Johnson’s novella “The Man Who Bridged the Mist”, Charlie Jane Anders’ novelette ”Six Months, Three Days” and Ken Liu’s short story ”The Paper Menagerie” were the fiction winners, with the third edition of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, edited by John Clute, David Langford, Peter Nicholls, and Graham Sleight, awarded Best Related Work. Ursula Vernon’s Digger was the best graphic work.
The Doctor’s Wife was one of three Who episodes nominated; the others were Tom McRae’s The Girl Who Waited, and Steven Moffat’s A Good Man Goes To War. Other candidates for the Long Form award were Hugo, Captain America, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Source Code.
