Winner's acceptance speech by Jessica Hynes for There She Goes in the Female Performance in a Comedy Programme category

JESSICA HYNES:  Wow.  Just sitting there, watching all of those incredible programmes makes me realise that we really, really should get a telly!

BAFTA, thank you, because you're not all about these.  You do so much for so many people.  So thank you.

David Tennant, I don't know if you've heard of him, he's really -- he's, you know, coming through.  He's a phenomenal actor, a kind and brilliant person to work with.  

Clelia Mountford, Sharon Horgan, Simon Hynd, Merman, thank you for bringing me into this programme and putting such an incredible team together.

But really, I really want to thank the Pye family, Shaun, Sarah, Frank, and Joe.  At the risk of sounding like an overcompensating middle class actress -- that's an in-joke -- you guys rock.  And also I want to thank Miley Locke, who apparently did a spell for me to get this award.  She plays my daughter in the show.  So magic works!

So thank you very much.
