In fact, it beat fantasy drama powerhouse Game of Thrones to take home the award for Best Drama of 2017.

Suranne Jones was also recognised for her captivating portrayal of scorned wife Gemma Foster, accepting her Drama Performance award from Broadchurch star and new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker.

Competition was fierce in the category with other nominees including David Tennant for Broadchurch, Jenna Coleman for Victoria, and Tom Hardy for Taboo.

“It was a risk to make a second because you loved the first so much and we didn’t want to disappoint you,” Jones said in her acceptance speech. “This means so much, that you enjoyed it.”

Taking away drama’s top honours must mean a third season is on the way right? Not necessarily... 

While we still have everything crossed that this will happen, Jones didn’t confirm either way when asked after her big win.

“You should never say never, because if I say I’m not doing it, then I rule that out, so I’m not saying no,” she told media. “But we’re busy.”

“We’re still basking in number two,” she added. “So who knows?”

Stream seasons 1 and 2 of Doctor Foster now.
