And it was the worst thing in the category.

Either Fleabag or Derry Girls, considering the award was for the Best Scripted, were far more deserving.

I would've gone for Catastrophe myself but both of those were worthy too, yeah.

This beat Fleabag Series 2 at the BAFTAs

And the magnificent Derry Girls S2. Unbelievable, to use a footballing term, like Wimbledon beating Liverpool in the FA Cup. Teary

Yes but the award's not for best script, just best pre written/non improvised comedy. Obviously the script is a part of that but only a part.

I've only seen clips and trailers of SLF and they were hideous, so I don't know who's doing the judging here.

More concerning is all four were non studio 'sitcom's. :( And three of them C4 shows which shows up the Beeb in a once v strong genre for them.

Actually yes I agree. Fleabag deserves best comedy drama, but laugh for laugh Derry Girls towers over the other nominees.

The sitcom format isn't very complimentary to the sketch show type of humour, really. A series of People Time might've been a better idea.
