‘Penny Dreadful’ Picks Up Three BAFTAs at TV Craft Awards

LONDON — Supernatural horror series “Penny Dreadful” picked up three BAFTAs Sunday for its portrayal of a murky Victorian London, with wins in production design, makeup and hair design, and original music.

Other winners at the British Academy Television Craft Awards, which celebrates the best behind-the-scenes talent in British television of 2014, included “Sherlock,” which picked up BAFTAs for sound in a fiction show and editing in a fiction program.

Sally Wainwright cemented her status as one of the U.K.’s leading writers, receiving a BAFTA in the drama writer category for her rural police thriller “Happy Valley.” In the comedy writer category, Mackenzie Crook prevailed over strong competition to win the first BAFTA of his career for “Detectorists,” in which he also stars alongside Toby Jones.

Julian Farino received the fiction director award for “Marvellous.” The show, which also stars Jones, is a fantasy-biopic of clown Neil Baldwin.
