as has happened before).
The TV Choice Awards are organised by British television magazine TV Choice and are voted for by television viewers. They may lack the glamour of some of the larger awards ceremonies (and are sponsored by a well-known brand of washing powder) but they are a good measure of what's popular on TV at the moment. Other shows getting a look-in to the nominations include popular period dramas Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife, with Miranda Hart - one of the rumour mill's female Doctor choices - nominated for Best Actress, and there are even a few entries from across the pond, with Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead going head-to-head with The Big Bang Theory and CSI for Best International Show.
The 2013 TV Choice Awards will take place on 9th September and you can place your votes on the TV Choice website from later on today. Voting closes 12th July.
