The list is split into seventeen different categories from Global Humanitarianism to Music, Politics to Sport to Innovators. Philip appears on the Screensavers: TV Drama list, alongside 18 others including, Peter Capaldi, Hugh Bonneville, David Tennant and Billie Piper.
Each person who appears on the list gets a short paragraph written about them and here is what they had to say about Philip:
With a flair for playing warm-hearted rough diamonds, Glenister is the natural heir to John Thaw. He already had starring roles in Coupling, Roger Roger and State of Play under his belt when he essayed the role for which he became most treasured — that of Gene Hunt in Life on Mars and then Ashes to Ashes. More recently, he’s given us Mad Dogs, Big School and From There to Here.
Nevertheless, we would like to offer our hearty congratulations to Philip on receiving such an honour and hope to see him on the list in years to come!
