2012 – Crime Thriller Awards - WINNERS

2012 – Crime Thriller Awards

(BBC Sherlock takes away three prizes!)

The 21st century has seen a rapid increase in the revival of past hypes – James Bond, for example, but more notably that of Sherlock Holmes. With several new on screen versions as well as many new books by ardent admirers of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle bursting into life and vying with their peers, it seems that in the realm of criminology only Sherlock Holmes can fit the bill, even in the 21st century.

At this year’s Specsavers Crime Thriller Awards, ‘Sherlock’ triumphed with the lead actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, his supporting actor, Martin Freeman and the series itself each taking away a dagger. The most successful program of the day, it now adds the three trophies to its many other awards – including a trio of Baftas. For Sherlock fans everywhere, it reflects the efforts of Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat in creating a show abundant with the essence of Doyle’s original work, yet scintillating with originality and new ideas. Were Conan Doyle here today, there is no doubt that he would be amazed to find his work still such an active part of the world today – in fact as a whole industry, developing and refreshing – and there is little argument, too, that he would not be proud of the work of Team Sherlock, BBC. Well done, Team Sherlock!
