Sherlock wins South Bank Sky Arts Award for TV Drama. The award is presented by Jason Isaacs.
Earlier this afternoon Sherlock won Best TV Drama at the South Bank Show Sky Arts Awards in London. Pictured are Beryl Vertue, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss and Elaine Cameron collecting the award on behalf of cast and crew.
Rather than focus on individual cast or crew roles in a production, the Awards reward overall excellence. The award is thus a reflection of everyone involved in the entire series.
The South Bank Show is one of the most prestigious television programmes dedicated to the arts in the UK. Its remit is to focus on the best of high art and popular culture in the world. Previously on ITV, the show has been resurrected by Sky Arts in 2012.
The awards were presented by Melvyn Bragg, and will broadcast in the UK this evening on Sky Arts 1 at 21:00BST.
