Benedict Cumberbatch stole the show on Thursday night with a triple award triumph at the Crime Thriller Awards 2012.
The debonair actor was the star name and the big winner at the event, held at The Grosvenor Hotel, London. Benedict, 36, picked up the trio of awards for BBC detective drama Sherlock Holmes, as he joined a host of actors at the Specsavers sponsored event.

The War Horse star looked dapper in his black suit and tie as he slicked back his locks in a short cut. Benedict picked up The Best Actor Silver Dagger for his starring role as Sherlock Holmes, but he also collected more honours for the hit TV show. Martin Freeman was in attendance and he picked up The Best Supporting Actor Dagger, which he won for his role as Dr Watson in the same show.

Lara, 32, looked lovely in a floaty sheer blue dress that featured long sleeves and was teamed with a pair of snakeskin heels. Una, 75, kept things classy in a fitted black dress that she wore with matching shoes and a clutch bag.
