Andrew Scott, who is best known for his role as Moriarty in Sherlock, has been named best actor at a ceremony honouring the best of BBC radio drama.

In doing so, Scott build upon last year's performance at the awards, where he won the best supporting actor prize. Elsewhere, Michelle Fairley was named best actress for her part in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. Best supporting actress went to This Is England star Vicky McClure for Radio 4's Kicking the Air and David Troughton was named best supporting actor for Singles and Doublets, broadcast on Radio 3. The presenter of the awards - former Doctor Who star David Tennant, who won best actor at last year's inaugural ceremony - said, "Acting on the radio is challenging, inspiring, delicate and always a privilege." Adding, "Radio drama is often overlooked and undervalued next to its showier younger siblings on the television and in the cinema. Yet it is on the wireless that so many important and brilliant talents have been discovered and nurtured."

The award for best single drama went to 'On It;, Tony Pitts' play about a heroin addict and 'The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum', adapted from the novel by German author Heinrich Boll, took best series or serial.
