Dominic West, Emily Watson and Monica Dolan won acting awards at the TV BAFTAs today for their roles in Appropriate Adult, a miniseries about Britain’s controversial investigation of serial killer Fred West and his wife Rosemary. Dominic West played Fred, Watson portrayed a social worker in the case and Dolan played Rosemary — beating Dame Maggie Smith who was nominated for Downton Abbey. Andrew Scott was voted best supporting actor for Sherlock, in which he plays the arch-nemesis Moriarty to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes. Cumberbash was nominated for best actor but lost to Dominic West. But Appropriate Adult lost to another miniseries, This Is England ’88.
