The series is up against some stiff competition with BBC’s Call the Midwife, ITV detective drama Vera and Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Sarah Lancashire and James Norton have both also been nominated for their performances as Catherine Cawood and Tommy Lee Royce respectively in the Drama Performance category.

Others nominated in that category are Brenda Blethyn for her role as DCI Vera Stanhope in Vera, India Amarteifio who portrayed Young Queen Charlotte in Netflix’s Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story and Judy Parfitt, Sister Monica Joan in Call the Midwife.

The National Television Awards 2023 will take place on September 5 at London's 02 Arena.
