BBC Dramas Autumn 2012

Another day and a trailer for some of the upcoming BBC dramas to expect over the next few months have been released too.

Benedict Cumberbatch continues to be the man of the moment and while he isn't playing famous sleuths and villains in Star Trek movies, he's also appearing in the upcoming Parade's End, playing a soldier while imminent companion Jenna-Louise Coleman is Dancing On The Edge with Anthony Head and Angel Coulby in a five part drama. That looks a lot more fun that seeing Sienna Miller's Tippi Hedrin being terrorised by birds and Toby Jones's version of Hitchcock in The Girl. No, that one I really do want to see.

Elsewhere, The Hour is gearing for a tense second series with Hector (Dominic West) being in a peculiar spot of bother as Bel (Romala Garai) and Freddie wonder if they really know their colleague after all. Other highlights from the trailer also see Gillian Anderson (The X Files) and Karen Hassan (Hollyoaks) in crime drama, The Fall and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) in the rather creepy looking, Top Of The Lake. Well, it beats the likes of Strictly Come Dancing but I'm kind of disappointed we didn't get some footage from two shows that are also returning around the same time as many of these will be airing.

Are you alluding to Merlin and Doctor WhO with that last line, Shawn? This trailer is for BBC 2 dramas. Those two shows are BBC 1.

I was but then I realised that the trailer was geared for BBC2. I suppose we may get a BBC1 one soon with clips from Doctor Who and Merlin in it.
