Despite being cancelled in favour of Being Human Series 5, The Fades was nominated in the BAFTAs for Best Drama Series, and won, beating both genre-favourite Misfits and the unstoppable Spooks to the top spot.
“I’m so pleased we’ve got a BAFTA nomination for best series,” executive producer Caroline Skinner told us, “it was a show that seemed to grow an incredibly loyal and devoted fanbase really quickly. Even though we didn’t get Series 2, the fact that we got such a good reaction and people did fall in love with it makes me pleased we did the right thing.”
