    Stanley Tucci, David Tennant, And Lydia West Have All Been Cast In New BBC/Netflix Thriller "Inside Man"

    Fans of Sherlock and Doctor Who – listen up!

    If you love Doctor Who, Dracula, or Sherlock, then do I have news for you!

    BBC One

    A brand new series by BAFTA and Emmy award-winning writer Steven Moffat is on its way and, by the sounds of it, it's gonna be pretty incredible!

    Inside Man is an upcoming four part thriller series for BBC One and Netflix.

    The captivating mini-series follows a prisoner on death row in the US, a Vicar in a quiet English town, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar. Each 60 minute episode will explore their lives as they cross paths in the most unexpected way.

    Filming will take place later this year and the series will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on Netflix outside of the UK and in Ireland.

    Not much is known about the series yet, but it has recently been announced that fan-favourite Stanley Tucci will play the title role, with British actors David Tennant, Lydia West, and Dolly Wells also joining the main cast.

    We all know Stanley from such hit movies as The Devil Wears Prada, The Lovely Bones, and Easy A, as well as The Hunger Games saga. David made his name as the 10th Doctor in Doctor Who, and has recently appeared in Staged, Good Omens, and Des. Lydia stole everyone's heart as Jill Baxter in It's A Sin, and has previously collaborated with Steven and Dolly on the seriously underrated BBC mini-series Dracula.

    Dolly has appeared in countless cult British comedy series from The Mighty Boosh to Some Girls, but it's her phenomenal performance as Sister Agatha Van Helsing/Dr Zoe Van Helsing in Dracula that makes me personally psyched to see her name in this recent cast announcement

    This series will represent another collaborative effort between writer Steven Moffat and director Paul McGuigan. Paul previously worked on Sherlock and Dracula, the latter of which also starred Lydia and Dolly.

    Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, says, "viewers will already know the magic created when Steven Moffat writes for David, Dolly, and Lydia. With the fantastic Stanley Tucci alongside them as our Inside Man, everything is in place for a series that will have the nation gripped."

    Chris Sussman of Netflix has added that while "it's impossible to say too much about Inside Man without giving away spoilers... the scripts are fiendishly clever, the cast is fantastic, and at this point in time nobody but Steven knows how it's going to end."

    There's no word yet on when Inside Man will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer and Netflix, but with the information we have already, I can safely say this is gonna be a hella gripping series that you don't want to miss!
