Doctor Who has 3 nominations in Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form which is an impressive showing.

Best Fancast 

Galactic Suburbia Podcast, Alisa Krasnostein, Alexandra Pierce, Tansy Rayner Roberts (Presenters) 

Recommended on Galactic Suburbia a couple of weeks back and up for Best Novelette is:
“Fade to White,” Catherynne M Valente (Clarkesworld, August 2012)
Its available to read or listen to as an audio and its a great piece of writing in my opinion.

Best Fan Writer 
Tansy Rayner Roberts

and some of Tansy's companions  on Verity! Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who  (up for a Parsec award) have some deserving nominations.
