Benedict Cumberbatch has picked up another award for his starring role in 'Sherlock' and said he was looking forward to getting his teeth back into the part of the scruffy sleuth.

The actor, who was named best actor at the Broadcasting Press Guild for his performance in 'Sherlock' and the period drama Parade's End, said he was looking forward to starting filming next week.

He said: "Playing Sherlock means a great deal to me. It's lovely to be back and have the hair in place. We're getting our teeth into the first episode of the new series next week so it feels like a treat. It's just wonderful to be back."

Benedict's 'Parade's End' co-star, Rebecca Hall, also walked away with a trophy after she was named best actress for her performance as his on-screen wife in the drama.

'Parade's End', which was shown on BBC Two in five episodes last year, picked up four prizes and was named best drama series, while dramatist Sir Tom Stoppard won the BPG writer's award for his work adapting the original novels by Ford Madox Ford.
