As we inch closer to December and the shops fill up with Christmas, your thoughts probably aren't straying into 2015. But – just for a second – look ahead to the new year and a string of exciting new dramas, among them the BBC's Wolf Hall.
The six-part adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel has attracted a star-studded cast with Mark Rylance playing protagonist Thomas Cromwell opposite Damian Lewis as Henry VIII. Mark Gatiss appears as Bishop Stephen Gardiner with Claire Foy playing Anne Boleyn, Jonathan Pryce as Thomas Wolsey and Jessica Raine portraying Jane Boleyn.
We've already had a sneak peek at Lewis's temperamental monarch, but today brings us a first look at Cromwell, the king's right hand man through whom Mantel constructs her narrative, plus some snaps of director Peter Kosminsky working with his cast.
