      Doctor Who won eight awards, including best actor
      The Doctor Who show has cleaned up at the Bafta Cymru Awards for the
      second year running, managing to win in eight of 13 nominations.

      Actor David Tenant, who plays the Time Lord, won best actor, with lead
      writer Russell T Davies best screenwriter.

      Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood won four gongs including best drama
      series and best actress for Eve Myles.

      Both programmes are made by BBC Wales. Controller Menna Richards said
      she was "very proud indeed".

      Doctor Who's success was even better than last year, when it won five
      awards.

      Its accolades this year included: best lighting director - not camera;
      best editor; best original music soundtrack; best make-up; best
      costume, and best director: drama.

      Sci-fi thriller Torchwood also picked up best director of photography:
      drama, and best design.

      The programme's success rounded off a night which saw BBC Wales pick
      up 24 Bafta Cymru Awards - more than any other broadcaster - at the
      Cardiff International Arena on Saturday.

      Menna Richards added: "Congratulations to all of the winners.

      "I'm very proud indeed of the success of all those who've made such
      wonderful programmes for BBC Wales.

      "It's great to see BAFTA Cymru recognising the talents of all those
      who make programmes of the highest possible standards."
