Hartswood Films’ multi award winning Sherlock, co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, has scooped the prestigious Prix Europa Award for ‘Best Episode of a Television Fiction Series or Serial of the Year’ 2011.
At the high profile awards gala in Berlin this weekend, Sherlock: A Study in Pink was praised as a “fresh adaptation of a timeless classic, visually inventive and made in an arresting style, bringing well known characters to a new audience. A remarkable and lovable cast keeps this story new and involving. A charming friendship story is brought to the screen in an adventurous and dynamic way.”
The show is already the proud winner of several awards in the UK including the Best Drama Series at this year’s BAFTA Awards and has also been recognized internationally with the prestigious American Peabody Award for Entertainment, the Television Critics Association (TCA) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials and the Canadian BANFF Award for Best Continuing Series.
Hartswood have recently finished shooting three more Sherlock films for transmission next year on BBC One.
