BBC1 - Autumn Drama Trailer

Well, BBC2 released one the other day and now it's BBC1's turn to unveil six dramas that they will be airing in the next few weeks/months ...

Melissa George (last seen in BBC4 drama, The Slap) is going all spy girl on the run as Sam Hunter in Hunted while Suranne Jones will be starring in Joe Ahearne's adaption of The Secret Of Crickley Hall along with Tom Ellis, David Warner and Iain deCaestecker. Warren Brown meanwhile, will be appearing in the four part series, Good Cop as an officer whose morality is challenged following the death of a friend.

The biggest of these dramas however could be the eight parter, Ripper Street, which was shot in Dublin earlier this year and features Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Myanna Buring to name a few. The series follows the aftermath with the police officers investigating the infamous Whitechapel murders. The other two dramas highlighted in the trailer include the second series of Accused, featuring the likes of Robert Sheehan, Sean Bean, Sheridan Smith, Olivia Colman and Anne-Marie Duff as well as two part drama, Shetland, a murder mystery set on the Scottish isles of the same name. Overall, a pretty impressive line up in the next few months. I wonder how ITV and Channel 4 will counter now?
