Patrick Melrose wins two Baftas

“Patrick Melrose”, based on Edward St Aubyn’s semi-autobiographical novels, received the BAFTA for Mini-Series and Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the titular character, won the first BAFTA of his career for Leading Actor. The series was adapted by author David Nicholls, who also received a BAFTA TV Craft award for best drama writer last month for his work on the series.

The awards, also known as the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards, celebrate and reward the best programmes and performances of 2018.

The winners were announced at a ceremony in central London on Sunday (12th May).
