Savile aside, sport and current-affairs departments mostly excelled themselves in an incident-packed 2012 while Olivia Colman’s annus mirabilis is acknowledged by the possibility of a remarkable double, with deserved nominations in both comic and dramatic categories. Bafta wouldn’t be Bafta without a couple of inexplicable omissions – and the total absence of Jed Mercurio’s fine police thriller, ‘Line of Duty’, is a doozy.
But we’re falling into the trap: while behind-the-scenes revelations might have been distinctly unsavoury, this has been a year in television – on screen at least – that’s well worth celebrating.
