Waking The Dead deserved a nom - last series was a return to the glory days of 2003-2005 and miles better than the final series of Spooks. WTD was nominated twice for an International Emmy and won one in 2004 yet never got a BAFTA nomination - very strange. Trevor Eve and Sue Johnston's scenes together had a naturalism that was truly exceptional and the show was filmic in ambition and never less than compelling.
