WATCH: Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston Star In BBC One Autumn/Winter Trailer
Following BBC One’s Autumn/Winter schedule announcement yesterday, a new trailer has emerged highlighting all we have to look forward to this season.
The new trailer shows hints from new episodes of Sherlock, Luther, From Darkness, Capital, The Night Manager, Brian Cox Forces of Nature, War and Peace, Cuffs, Homes for Veterans, Mary Beard on Pompeii, EastEnders, Saving Lives at Sea, River, Dickensian, Tracey Ullman Sketch Show, And Then There Were None, Doctor Who, Waste, The Kennedys, The Hunt, The Great Barrier Reef, Tomorrow’s Food, Doctor in the House, Vikings, The Great British Bake Off, Strictly Come Dancing and many more. It’s basically everything we want this autumn.
The trailer starts with our first clip from the new Victorian one-off episode of Sherlock, in which we see Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes sporting a pipe.
Our first glimpses of Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman in character for new drama The Night Manager prove very exciting. In the upcoming series, which is an adaptation of John le Carre’s spy thriller, Hiddleston plays a former soldier who is recruited by intelligence agent (played by Colman) to befriend the arms dealer of Hugh Laurie’s character.
Meanwhile, DCI John Luther (Idris Elba) utters the cryptic line: “There are some things that you might have heard about me that quite possibly could be true” in a clip from the new series of Luther.
Soap EastEnders is not to be overshadowed, however, with clips from the previously revealed new storyline of Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) attempting suicide after the mother he thought dead returns to Walford. In the clip, wife Jane (Laurie Brett) screams that he cannot leave her, as Ian stands on a high building.
