Best Comedy BAFTA Nomination for Detectorists

Detectorists is among the nominees for Scripted Comedy at the BAFTA Television Awards, it has been announced today. The show written, directed by and starring Mackenzie Crook has already had a number of award nominations including one for Mackenzie’s writing at the BAFTA TV Craft Awards.

The show, which also stars Toby Jones and a host of British acting talent, was a hit with the critics and audience alike launching to the highest ratings for a debut comedy series on BBC Four last autumn. The show was immediately commissioned for a second series, which is currently in production and will air later this year.

The first series is available on DVD.
