'Doctor Who' leads National TV Awards
National TV Awards were handed out at the Royal Albert Hall last night, though not all winners turned up.

The new Dr Who series picked up a hat-trick, with Most Popular Drama; Most Popular Actor for Christopher Eccleston – the Doctor; and Most Popular Actress for Billie Piper.

Billie was delighted with her success, saying "Soap stars win everything - I didn't think I had a sniff."

But co-star Eccleston couldn’t make it to pick up his award.

Also missing were Sharon Osbourne – named Most Popular Expert On TV – and the Little Britain duo Matt Lucas and David Walliams, who won Most Popular Comedy Programme.

EastEnders beat Corrie to Best Serial Drama, which was presented by hopefuls for the Tory leadership, David Davis and David Cameron.

Super-chef Jamie Oliver managed two awards. He got Most Popular Factual Programme for Jamie’s School Dinners and a special recognition award for his healthy eating campaign.
