More Broadchurch Awards: Wins At The RTS Programme Awards



There was more well-deserved awards glory for Broadchurch tonight at the Royal Television Society 2014 Programme Awards.

The ITV drama was named Best Serial Drama, seeing off a strong challenge from category competitors In The Flesh (BBC Three) and Top Of The Lake (BBC Two).

Olivia Colman picked up the Best Actor - Female prize for the second year in a row, this time for her portrayals of DS Ellie Miller in Broadchurch and single mother Carol in Run (Channel 4).  She competed against her Broadchurch co-star Jodie Whittaker (Beth Latimer) and Sharon Rooney, star of Channel 4's My Mad Fat Teenage Diary.

Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall was nominated for the Writer - Drama award, but the category was won by Marlon Smith and Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan for Run. Dennis Kelly (Utopia) was also nominated.

David Tennant missed out on a Best Actor nomination for Broadchurch, edged out by Stephen Dillane (The Tunnel, Sky Atlantic), Lennie James (Run, Channel 4) and the category winner, Idris Elba for Luther (BBC One).


The Awards were presented by comedian Tim Vine at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

A second series of Broadchurch is due to go into production in late spring / early summer. Find out more about the series on our website
