What Sci Fi shows have been popular these last few years? Doctor Who pretty much has had zero competition.
That's not true. I even just mentioned one by name, which only concluded this year. Go back a couple of years and you have Battlestar Galactica and (since we're defining contenders broadly enough to include Game of Thrones) Lost. And then there's various other programs that have achieved a degree of critical praise - Dollhouse, Alphas, Akta Manniskor, Les Revenants...

Turning what was once a pretty competitive drama category into a sustained Doctor Who victory lap (and look at this year, what, three Who nominations?) was around the point I could no longer take it seriously.
