New BBC2 drama Collateral has inadvertently created something of a Doctor Who reunion.

The four-part crime drama stars both John Simm as a Labour MP and Billie Piper as a single mum, and the new trailer features the Master and Rose having an incredibly fraught argument…

Carey Mulligan leads the new drama from writer David Hare as DI Kip Glaspie. The pair also worked together for 2014 West End play Skylight.

Last Tango in Halifax’s Nicola Walker also features in the drama, described as “a modern-day state of the nation project”.

The first episode revolves around the mystery that unfolds when a pizza delivery man is shot dead in south London, seemingly in a random act of violence.

DI Glaspie is unconvinced and instead discovers that the takeaway manager inexplicably sent a Syrian refugee instead of his regular driver. When Kip and her partner DS Nathan Bilk track down the victim’s home, they meet his sisters, who the detective is convinced are hiding something.
