Appropriate Adult, ITV1's dramatisation of the investigation into serial killer Fred West, leads the nominations for this year's Bafta TV Awards.

The two-part drama scored four nods, including best mini-series, leading actor for Dominic West and leading actress for Emily Watson.

BBC One series Sherlock and Channel 4 drama This Is England '88 both received three nominations each.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony in London on 27 May.

In the leading actor category, Dominic West will take on Benedict Cumberbatch, who is nominated for his role as Sherlock Holmes, plus John Simm for his role in Exile and Joseph Gilgun for This is England '88.

Watson is nominated in the best actress category alongside Romola Garai for The Crimson Petal and the White, Nadine Marshal for Channel 4's Random and Vicky McClure for her performance as Lol in This Is England '88.

McClure won the Bafta last year for the same role in This Is England '86.

Five-time Bafta winner Dame Maggie Smith is nominated in the best supporting actress category for Downton Abbey.

She will go up against comedian Miranda Hart, who starred in Call the Midwife, The Hour's Anna Chancellor and Monica Dolan for Appropriate Adult.

Sherlock's other two nominations came in the supporting actor category, with Martin Freeman and Andrew Scott recognised for their roles as Watson and Moriarty.
