It was a Sherlock double at tonight’s Royal Television Society Programme Awards as the show triumphed in the best drama series and best drama writer categories, voted for by members of the industry.
The popular detective series - starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman - beat off competition in the best drama category from fellow BBC productions Call The Midwife and Line of Duty.
Accepting the award from host Jo Brand was executive producer Sue Vertue alongside series co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat.
Speaking on behalf of the show, Vertue said, “I’ll take this as a chance to thank the brains behind Sherlock, Steven and Mark. We just love making the series.”
Moffat later took home the best drama writer prize for his work on Sherlock. During his acceptance speech the show’s writer and executive producer thanked Gatiss, saying he’s, “70% of every good decision I’ve made - the best and wisest friend I’ve ever made.”
He then went on to thank his wife and Sherlock executive producer Sue Vertue who he described as, “a hundred percent of everything that’s ever been good about my life.”
I know there are a lot of photos from the Scandal preview panel talk out there (and in much better quality since my phone once again threw a hissy fit over the bright spotlights lighting the stage) but if you think of these two more as impressionist art than photos, that might work..?
Also, was seated next to the boy who asked how you could become a consulting detective, and the moment the panel was over Benedict came over to talk to the kid for a couple of minutes and answering all his questions very seriously (while keeping a wary eye on me, btw - had no idea I looked that scary) which I thought was rather sweet.
