Doctor Who, Misfits And Being Human Get BAFTA Nominations

Matt Smith, Robert Sheehan and Lauren Socha among the nominated actors…

The TV BAFTAs are due to be handed out on 22 May, and the Academy has just released the list of nominations, with a number of SFX shows doing well, though Who misses out on Best Drama. Both B eing Human and Misfits are in the Best Drama category – along with Sherlock – but they all face very tough competition from Downton Abbey (which, it pains us to admit, must be the favourite).
