Benedict Cumberbatch won Best Actor and Martin Freeman won Best Supporting Actor in a Mini-Series, while writer Steven Moffat won Best Writing in a Mini-Series for Series 3’s finale, ‘His Last Vow’.

Comedian Seth Meyers hosted the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards from Television Academy headquarters in North Hollywood, California.

Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama, commented: “It’s great to see Sherlock being recognised so spectacularly at the Emmys. I’m delighted that the BBC is home to so much world class acting and writing talent.”

Steven Moffat added: “When we started on Sherlock, we thought it was a simple, private thing – good but not celebrated. We are still reeling from its success, and the joy it has brought so many! We came out to LA thinking we would take nothing home but the memory of a great night. To have won seven Emmys in total is something none of us will ever forget.”
