Broadchurch - Broadchurch Leads Royal Television Society Awards Nominations

Hit British crime drama Broadchurch looks set to dominate the U.K.'s Royal Television Society Programme Awards after receiving four top nominations.

The murder-mystery series, about a child's death in a small coastal town, is nominated in the Drama Serial category alongside zombie show In The Flesh and Elisabeth Moss' Top Of The Lake.

Broadchurch's female leads Olivia Colman and Jodie Whittaker will go up against each other for the Actor - Female award along with My Mad Fat Diary star Sharon Rooney, and the show's creator Chris Chibnall is up for a writing prize.

In the Actor - Male category, Idris Elba is nominated for his turn as a troubled cop in Luther alongside Stephen Dillane (The Tunnel) and Lennie James (Run).

Burton and Taylor, starring Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West as Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, has received a nod in the Single Drama line-up, competing with Our Girl and The Challenger.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 18 March (14).
