Lara Pulver: I enjoyed spanking Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock
A Scandal in Belgravia, the Sherlock episode in which Pulver made a guest appearance, was a big hit with fans quickly becoming the most watched video on iPlayer.
It was also the source of controversy due to the extensive time the actress spent on screen naked.
This did not put off the judging panel at the American Critics’ Choice Awards however, who have nominated Pulver for an award for her brief stint in the detective drama.
Pulver has been shortlisted for best actress in a TV movie or mini-series and faces competition from fellow Brit Emily Watson who has been given a nod for her role in serial killer drama Appropriate Adult.
