I think all of these are great ideas. There are a *lot* of them, aren't there? The judges will have quite a bit of work to do! I don't suppose there's any way to whittle down the list a bit; everyone's got their favorite combinations.

I think you need to be careful about how many new categories you add. It may be best to have a 9/10 Doctor with Classic Companion category then have one category per companion.
That being said, I'm behind adding these categories: - Best 9th Doctor/Grace Fic - Best 10th Doctor/Grace Fic - Best 11th OC Doctor Fic - Best Jack/Martha Fic - Best 9th Doctor/Reinette Fic - Best John/Joan Fic - Best 9th Doctor/Sarah Jane Fic - Best 10th Doctor/Sarah Jane Fic (even if I don't write them, I do enjoy reading them)
Seems to me these categories makes the most sense right now:
- Best 9th Doctor/Grace Fic - Best 10th Doctor/Grace Fic - Best 11th OC Doctor Fic - Best Jack/Martha Fic - Best 9th Doctor/Reinette Fic - Best John/Joan Fic - Best 9th Doctor/Sarah Jane Fic - Best 10th Doctor/Sarah Jane Fic
And I'd add a catch-all category for anything that doesn't fall into those because the possibilities are simply to numerous. Even this little (comparatively speaking) seems like a lot.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I haven't seen much in the way of 11th Doctor fic. Is that seriously a category that people think should be included?

Re: 11th Doctor Fic - Yes, because I've read lots of fics out there where they make up their own version of the 11th doctor and there is even a livejournal where its a female doctor and fics based on 'her' and such... I'm even writing a series around a female 11th doctor 'played by' well, I can't spell her name correctly, but she's played in a lot of things, like Stargate SG-1 as Vala's daughter, she played Inara Serra, the companion on Firefly/Serenity for example. Morena something. Morena B I believe, so yeah, you'd be surprised about that category.

There are just so many possibilities with Doctor Who. I'd definitely have: 9th/classic companion 10th/classic companion 11th/classic companion, 11th/OC
you can't forget #th/#th, where the Doctor meets himself and his past and current companions meet each other.
You should include Doc/Rose (reunion). You might not need the number because some writers have them reuniting when he's 11th, or before he met her when he's 8th. For the 8th doc, I'd have 8th (movie) 8th (books) 8th (audio) but there are so many 8th companions, it'd be hard to list all the possibilities.
For general categories, you could have: Best classic/new X-over Best Doc/Rose reunion Best 11th Doctor Best John/Joan Best Doctor/Other Timelord Best Doctor slash Best Doctor het Best on Gallifrey (pre-war) Best on Gallifrey (post-war) [some writers find ways of bringing it back] Best Girl!Doc
In the classic series there weren’t so many overt romance undertones. So you could have: Best classic het Best classic slash

There are so many character in DW over the years, it's hard to give each coupling etc it's own category. logistically speaking it makes sense to break up categories that have an abundance of fic (ie: Doctor/Rose fics). No sense having several categories for Grace (as a random example) if you're not gonna get so many that it's needed to break them up. I think classic/new crossover would cover a lot of categories, and it can be thinned out as needed. Maybe New Who/Sarah Jane and New Who/Grace if there's a need.
I think I'm rambling at this point, but basically it's best to keep the categories more generalized and only expand where it's really needed. Otherwise there are so many categories and prizes, any fic chosen as best has less credibility because there were only 2 or 3 fics in the category to begin with.
