Two of Britain’s proudest exports have picked up gongs at this year’s BAFTA TV Craft Awards!

The long-running, much-loved BBC family sci-fi series Doctor Who won the award for Special, Visual and Graphic Effects whilst the 50th anniversary biopic, An Adventure in Space and Time, starring David Bradleu as first Doctor William Hartnell in the story of how the show came into creation, won the prize for  Make Up and Hair Design.

The multi-award winning ITV period drama, Downton Abbey picked up the gong for Costume Design, whilst BBC Two series Peaky Blinders collected two trophies at the cermeony, held last night, one for Photography and Lighting, and the other for Best Director – Fiction for Otto Bathurst.

Ripper Street was also amongst the shows celebrating having picked up the award for Production Design, as was the X Factor which won the award for Multi-Camera Direction.

Other winners included the production team from Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway who were crowned Entertainment Craft Team 2014, Educating Yorkshire who won the award for Editing – Factual and Broadchurch whose composer ├ôlafur Arnalds won the award for Original Television Music.

Meanwhile one of the stars of two of last night’s winners, Arthur Darvil, has released a spoof version of the Frozen hit song, Let It Go, with lyrics aimed at fans to ‘let go’ of his role in Doctor Who.

The actor, who played companion Amy Pond’s husband Rory Williams in Doctor Who until 2012, joined forces with BBC Radio 1 to record the track, which features him singing lyrics asking fans to forget about Rory and focus on his work since leaving the show, which has included a part on fellow BAFTA TV Craft winning show, Broadchurch.

This hilarious rendition also includes Darvill sugesting that his fellow co-stars were more frightening than the Daleks and that he longed to be remembered as more than “just a bloke riding in a TARDIS”.
