Matt Smith and Claire Foy in ‘The Crown’

Netflix dramas The Crown and Black Mirror lead the nominations for the 2018 Baftas TV Awards. 

The shows, along with the BBC’s Line Of Duty and Three Girls, have three nods each.

The Crown and Line Of Duty will compete in the best drama category with Peaky Blinders and The End Of The F***ing World.

Claire Foy is once again nominated for best actress, with her co-star Vanessa Kirby up for best supporting actress. Both have been recast (with Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter) for series 3.

Joe Cole earned a best actor nod for his performance in the Black Mirror episode ’Hang The DJ’, which is also nominated for best single drama. Jimmi Simpson is up for best supporting actor for the USS Callister episode. Netflix has six nominations in all.

HBO’s Big Little Lies, Fox’s Feud: Bette And Joan, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and BBC documentary The Vietnam War compete in the international category.

The nominations were announced this morning (4 April) in London.
