Article roundup 8th February 2010

After hinting about it at a UCLA meeting last week, Neil Gaiman confirmed that he would be writing for Doctor Who at the SFX Weekender on Saturday (see the Doctor Who News article); the event also saw Doctor Who win a number of awards. Nominations have also been published for the Broadcasting Press Guild, with David Tennant, Eve Myles and Russell T Davies up for awards. In other news, the likelihood for a movie is still being circulated on the back of the Billie Piper comment last week, and Matt Smith's home paper explores how his mother is now running his fan club!
