The winners of the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2013 were announced at a special event hosted by actor David Tennant in the Radio Theatre at BBC Broadcasting House.

The awards are a celebration of audio drama, on air and online, and are about giving recognition to the actors, writers, producers, sound designers, and others who work in the genre.

Speaking at the awards, Tennant had the following to say:

"The quality of our radio drama is one of the things that makes me proud to be British. Acting on the radio is challenging, inspiring, delicate and always a privilege. Radio drama is often overlooked and undervalued next to its showier younger siblings on the television and in the cinema, and yet it is on the wireless that so many important and brilliant talents have been discovered and nurtured. I am delighted radio drama is being celebrated in this way."

The Doctor Who related winners of the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2013 were:

Best Supporting Actor in an Audio Drama, presented by Maxine Peake
David Troughton in Singles and Doublets

Tinniswood Radio Drama Award 2012 for Best Radio Drama Script, presented by Andrew Davies
