Neil Gaiman’s SFX Award Acceptance Speech

Over the weekend, writer/cool guy Neil Gaiman won an SFX award for best screenplay for his Doctor Who episode, “The Doctor’s Wife,” a well deserved honor. Since Neil lives in Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes, he was unable to make the awards ceremony in Wales, so he sent in this taped acceptance speech. I think you’ll agree, he’s pretty fantastic.

Congratulations, Neil! Here’s hoping we get a couple more Who stories from you soon…
