Heat (UK) - - Unmissables Awards! -

Bene­dict cum­ber­batch (Sher­lock & the child in time, BBC1) We all know just how end­lessly as­ton­ish­ing Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch is as Sher­lock Holmes, the role that turned him into an overnight sen­sa­tion – and in 2017’s fourth se­ries, he was as stun­ning as ever. But when The Child In Time came along, it was clear his beau­ti­fully emo­tional per­for­mance as the griev­ing fa­ther of a miss­ing lit­tle girl was a defin­ing mo­ment in his ca­reer. Pre­sented with his award, Bene­dict says, “Brilliant! I’m very chuffed about this, not least be­cause, as well as Sher­lock, you’re hon­our­ing me for The Child In Time, the first show made by our pro­duc­tion com­pany, and adapted from Ian Mcewan’s ex­traor­di­nar­ily pow­er­ful novel. So I ac­cept this on be­half of every­one who worked so bril­liantly on it. Thank you, heat!” run­ners-up: Tim Roth (Tin Star) Ber­tie Carvel (Doc­tor Foster) Martin Free­man (Sher­lock) Peter Ca­paldi (Doc­tor Who)
