Last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards were an evening of celebration for past and present stars of Doctor Who as Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper both picked up prizes for their acting.
Coleman – who returns as Clara Oswald in the forthcoming series, opposite Peter Capaldi’s new Doctor – collected her award for UK TV actress from former co-star Matt Smith who departed the series last Christmas.
Piper – who joined the pair in November’s 50th anniversary special – attended the ceremony with her husband Lawrence Fox and was honoured with the theatre actress award.
The ceremony, which honours women across the industry, were attended by acting royalty Samuel L Jackson, Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren, who picked up the icon award and drew gasps from the audience with her expletive-ridden speech.
Also recognised at the Berkeley Square ceremony were Fearne Cotton (radio personality), Lily James (next breakthrough), Little Mix (band), Naomi Campbell (TV personality), Emma Willis (presenter), Sam Claflin (man of the year) and Taylor Schilling (Editor’s Special Award).
