BAFTAs give nom to "Who"

The BAFTAs just announced their annual television award nominations and Doctor Who is up for Best Drama Series. Way to go, Who!

It's unfortunate that neither of the leads got acting noms, but given that (to my knowledge), in the 43 years the show's been around, it's never been recognized by the BAFTAs in this type of category, I'm willing to let it slide.

UPDATED!: According to IMDB, the show was nominated in both '77 & '78 in the "Drama/Light Entertainment" category, which I gather refers to children's programming (it didn't win on either occasion). Sorry - my BAFTAs knowledge is weak and IMDB isn't helping much.
