The BBC Two adaption of The Crimson Petal and The White was the top winner at this year's RTS Craft and Design Awards with three gongs.

Based on Michel Faber's 2002 novel, the Victorian drama scooped best production design, costume design and best make up in the drama category.

There were also awards for Eric and Ernie, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey and the Judges Award went to Spooks.

The ceremony was held at London's Savoy hotel and was hosted by Myleene Klass.

The judges described the costumes used in The Crimson Petal and The White as "stunning, highly designed with beautiful detail".

The Spooks production team picked up the prestigious Judges Award for being "one of the most important original British drama series of the last decade", the panel said.

The series, which began in 2002, came to an end earlier this year.

The judges said it sparked a "new wave of smart, sophisticated, thought-provoking and above all entertaining drama on British television and beyond"

The Doctor Who Christmas special last year was named winner for best digital effects, beating Inside The Human Body and the second series of Misfits.

The Impressions Show with Culshaw and Stephenson beat Dancing On Ice and Come Fly With Me to the prize of best costume design in the entertainment and non-drama category.

Best picture enhancement went to the BBC Two drama Eric and Ernie and Coronation Street's lighting team were commended in the best lighting for multicamera category.

The prize for best multicamera work went to Channel 4's 24 Hours In A&E, beating off competition from the team who produced the Royal Wedding coverage for BBC One.

ITV's Downton Abbey was presented with the gong for best photography for drama, whilst Human Planet picked up the prize for best photography in the documentary category.
