Vote For Sherlock Now!

TV Choice, the UK’s biggest selling paid for TV listings magazine is offering the public the opportunity to vote for their favourites in the TV Choice Awards 2012.

The BBC’s Sherlock has been nominated for Best Drama Series. Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have been listed in the Best Actor category (you can only vote for one of them!). The nominations in each category are arranged in A-Z order.

It only takes a few minutes to do it, you don’t have to vote in every category and it’s FREE.

You have until midnight on Friday 15 June to vote and you can only do it once.

TV Choice readers have also been able to vote by using the form in the magazine (issue dated w/c 26 May). This poll is for the longlist which will then be reduced down to a short one. You’ll have the opportunity to vote again at that stage, either in the magazine or free online on the same website.

Sherlock won the Best New Drama category in last year’s TV Choice Awards. Can Sherlock do even better this time?
