Downton Abbey and Coronation Street nominated for TV award


Doctor Who, Coronation Street and EastEnders are among the nominations for an award celebrating the greatest British TV serial of all time.

Other shows also in the longlist, which was compiled by writers at the Radio Times magazine, include Prime Suspect and Upstairs, Downstairs.

The detective drama Broadchurch, which premiered on ITV earlier this year, also features alongside another success for the channel, Downton Abbey, which returns for a fourth series this Autumn.

Radio Times readers have been asked to vote for the overall winner from the list, which can be viewed in full on the magazine’s website.
