Parade’s End continues its run of success after earning 5 nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Benedict Cumberbatch has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries for his role as Christopher Tietjens.  On hearing about his nomination, Cumberbatch said “”I was so honoured to work on Parade’s End, to get the chance to get under the skin of such a complex beautifully written character as Tietjens with a script written by the unsurpassable Sir Tom Stoppard and then to get to work on that script with the likes of the incredible Rebecca HallRoger Allam and Adelaide Clemens under the eye of the superlative Suzanna White is simply a dream come true for an actor. To then receive an Emmy nomination amongst some of my acting heros for having that privilege is beyond thrilling . Thank you.”

Sir Tom Stoppard, who wrote the scripts for the five hour saga, adapted from a series of novels by Ford Madox Ford, has also been nominated in the category of Outstanding Writer for a Miniseries.

The series has already attracted huge critical acclaim having being nominated and won awards from the Broadcasting Press Guild, BAFTA and South Bank amongst others.
