Cult TV Awards Voting - CLOSED!

Voting has just concluded for this year’s Cult TV Awards, in what is now our 17th year of presenting our appreciation of the best in fictional television to the talent behind the shows that we make time for more than others. As an incentive to cast your votes, we had three copies of the brand new version of A BOUQUET OF BARBED WIRE available as an incentive to get your 'thinking caps' on.

The Awards voting followed the online nominations stage, where we compiled the top five nominations in each category from what was suggested by those who let us know their views - the announcement of the winners is where things REALLY get fun!

For those of you new to this, there were NO premium rate phone lines to call, or even stamps to buy to put your votes on record! With the process being online, and with each form being individually verified to ensure that block votes are discounted, this is the best system going to ensure that we genuinely take the pulse of the UK’s Cult TV appreciators.

As a ‘Thank You’ for taking part, all those who nominated were entered into a draw for The Avengers Series 4 7-DVD Set that will bringhas brought smiles to the trio who have been lucky enough to win one. The winners were David Mills of Gillingham, George Spedding of Cheshire, and Dan Mcbrearty of North London.

A Bouquet of Barbed Wire - New Version on DVDSo, to the voting prize: A Bouquet of Barbed Wire stars TREVOR EVE (Waking the Dead, Shoestring), HERMIONE NORRIS (Spooks, Kingdom), IMOGEN POOTS (“Miss Austen Regrets”, “28 Weeks Later”), TOM RILEY (“St Trinians 2”, Lost In Austen), JEMIMA ROOPER (Lost In Austen, Hex) and MARL LEWIS JONES (“The Passion”, The Commander). The three lucky winners were Richard Farley of Sutton Coldfield, Catherine Owen of St Stephens, and Diane Pell of Stevenage.

This provoking rework of the 1970s drama was filmed against the backdrop of London and was written by acclaimed writer Guy Andrews (Lost in Austen, Prime Suspect), directed by Ashley Pearce (Agatha Christie’s Poirot, The Commander, Afterlife) and produced by Mammoth Screen.

Peter Manson, his teenage daughter Prue and wife Cassie are in the midst of a family crisis over Prue’s shock affair with her teacher and resulting pregnancy when architect Peter employs rising star, Sarah Francis. Fearing that he is losing his beloved daughter and with his marriage to Cassie at breaking point, Peter turns to Sarah for affection. With his increasingly erratic behaviour, it is only a matter of time before all is revealed...

Executive Producer for Mammoth Screen Damien Timmer says: “The original TV version of A Bouquet of Barbed Wire was one of the most controversial dramas of its era, busting taboos which still have the power to shock decades later.”

The Voting Form did take a little time to fill in - 13 of the Awards are part of our HALL OF FAME – an ever-expanding pantheon of the most deserving from the last 60 years of television.  You simply had to choose from the drop-down lists in each of the categories.

There are also three HALL OF SHAME categories – these are ones that are just a bit of fun, as we show that sometimes even our favourites shows have an ‘off day’ with unintentionally hilarious results! You can find the list of previous winners on this website by clicking here.

As there was not enough space on the voting form to list the HALL OF SHAME entries in their entirety, here’s a full run-down of what all the options were:

HALL OF SHAME – WORST LINE OF DIALOGUE:

“The explosion decapitated him. He wouldn't have felt a thing” (“Aftermath”, Spooks)

“So the ghosts of the dead people are causing the whispers?” (“Everybody Loves Hurley”, Lost)

“Deactivating a generator loop without the correct key is like repairing a watch with a hammer and chisel - one false move and you'll never know the time again” (“Pyramids of Mars”, Doctor Who)

“Geronimo” (Various Adventures, Doctor Who)

“Ben, as your attorney, your friend, and your brother, I strongly suggest you get a better lawyer” (Jerry Horne, Twin Peaks)

 

HALL OF SHAME – WORST CONTUINUITY CLANGER

Harriet Jones supposedly going to herald a new 'golden age' then the Doctor gets rid of her (“World War Three”, Doctor Who)
