Sherlock wins the BAFTA Radio Times Audience Award

11 May 2015

Hartswood Films’ Sherlock has won the¬†coveted Radio Times Audience Award at this year’s BAFTA TV Awards.

Tens of thousands of fans voted online to ensure the UK’s favourite detective won, amidst tough competition from EastEnders, Strictly Come Dancing, The Missing, Cilla, The Great British Bake Off and Game of Thrones.

“We never take the continuing success of Sherlock remotely for granted,” said co-creator Steven Moffat, who collected the award on stage with actress¬†Amanda Abbington, producer Sue Vertue and executive producer Beryl Vertue.

The Audience Award is the only BAFTA TV category voted for by members of the public – Sherlock is the third winner of the special award, which last year went to fellow BBC Cymru Wales programme Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor.
