Sherlock, Doctor Who, David Tennant and Colin Morgan – together in one video!

A trailer for the BBC's new drama season features cult favourites, period shows including Call the Midwife plus detective drama with Idris Elba and Gillian Anderson


Sherlock series three may not have started filming yet but that hasn’t stopped the BBC including shots of its stars in the video trailer for its new drama season – and who can blame them?


Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are glimpsed several times in the three-minute clip, which also features a slew of other cult TV favourites, including Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman in upcoming episodes of Doctor Who, former Time Lord David Tennant in his new three-part drama The Politician’s Husband and Merlin’s Colin Morgan in a guest role in period crime drama Quirke.

Meanwhile, Call the Midwife is joined by new period drama Peaky Blinders, starring Cillian Murphy, the return of Idris Elba in Luther, Gillian Anderson in her own detective drama The Fall, Lacey Turner turned soldier in Our Girl and a peek at new zombie drama In the Flesh.
