"Mum" and "Save Me" led the winners at the Royal Television Society Programme (RTS) Awards on Tuesday (19.03.19).

The BBC sitcom scooped two accolades at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, with Stefan Golaszewski landing the Writer - Comedy award, and Lesley Manville was awarded the Comedy Performance - Female prize, with the judges saying she had set a "new benchmark for excellence in this genre".

Meanwhile, the Sky Atlantic series took Drama Series and Writer - Drama for Lennie James, who also starred in the programme. Its "captivating performances" and "authenticity as a series" won it praise from the judges.

Meanwhile, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith jointly took home Comedy Performance - Male for their "astonishing and committed" turns in "Inside No. 9", with the judges describing their performance as a "masterclass in comedy".

"Killing Eve" star Jodie Comer won Actor (Female) for her "already iconic" performance as assassin Villanelle, and Lucian Msamati's "harrowing, unsentimental and nuanced" work on "Kiri" saw his "extraordinarily brilliant performance" win Actor (Male).
