A gritty drama about serial killer Fred West won three television Baftas last night.

Appropriate Adult, an ITV1 show, picked up leading actor for Dominic West, leading actress for Emily Watson, and supporting actress for Monica Dolan. Another big winner was Sherlock, with a gong for supporting actor going to Andrew Scott, who played the villainous Moriarty, and the special award going to the show's co-writer Steven Moffat, who also writes Doctor Who.

Rolf Harris described his Bafta Fellowship award as "humbling". He said: "How amazing is it to discover what you love doing most can become your career."
