Benedict Cumberbatch could find himself taking home a National Television Award for 'Best TV Detective Of The Year' following the news that he has been nominated in the new category. However, the Sherlock actor has some stiff competition.
Up against Benedict in the category that will feature in the list of categories including 'Best Drama' and 'Best Talent Show', is iconic actor David Suchet for his portrayal of Hercule Poirot and Broadchurch stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman for their roles as DI Hardy and DS Miller.
Whilst it will be interesting to see who wins in the new category, we're also going to be excited about seeing who will take home the award for the 'Best Drama Performance' with Downton Abbey still prominent in the line up following the nominations for Hugh Bonneville, Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery and Jim Carter.
