BAFTA nominations for 'The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies'

Christopher Jefferies was played by Jason Watkins

ITV drama The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies has been nominated for a TV BAFTA in the mini-series category.

It tells the story of the Bristol landlord who was arrested on suspicion of murdering his tenant Joanna Yeates. He was released and another man, Vincent Tabak, was jailed for her murder. But in the intervening months Mr Jefferies suffered character assassination by many tabloids. Later he would receive apologies and payouts, and also gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards.

The two-part drama about his ordeal aired in December, and starred Jason Watkins. He has also been nominated for his performance in the leading actor category.
