The National Television Awards 2018 shortlist has been revealed and voting is now open – but who are the major match-ups? Best Drama will, as usual, be a fiercely contested category with last year’s surprise winner Casualty going up against giants Call the Midwife, Game of Thrones and Doctor Foster, plus newcomer Liar.
Best Crime Drama also features some heavyweights with Broadchurch up against Line of Duty, Sherlock and Little Boy Blue.
Former Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Jenna Coleman will face off in the Best Drama Performance category for their roles in Broadchurch and Victoria. Meanwhile, This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield will go head-to-head in the Best TV Presenter category – although it’ll take a mammoth effort for either of them to dethrone Ant & Dec, who have won the award 17 years running.
