BBC Drama New Season

Hermione Norris (Stella) and Ashley Walters (Jack) in Outcasts

A rainy night in London town this evening for a special BBC Drama event.

Launching both its autumn and winter season, as well as a vision of the future.

Many actors, writers, directors and producers were there.

Including Sherlock and Doctor Who’s Steven Moffat, Daniel Mays, Jamie Bamber, David Morrissey and Anne Reid.

We were treated to a sneak peek of what is to come.

Plus new drama commissions announced by BBC Controller of Drama Ben Stephenson.

You can see both the showreel and the press release here.

Ben also had a few other things to say about BBC Drama.

I’ve posted my audio below for those who might be interested:

1. The best show in town:

2. The passion for drama:

3. The BBC, Sky and US TV:

4. The future:

5. New dramas:

  1. Super excited by that still of Outcasts! The clips in the reel are so short…I want more!

    There was a surreptitious mountain?

    I’ll have a listen to the audio when I have time later; I always enjoy your interviews.

  3. Thanks for this Ian! Very excited to see Danny Mays & co in Outcasts. Hoping that BBCa does a huge advertising push with it like they are currently doing here with Luther and Law & Order UK (which are getting rave reviews!)
    And very exciting that BBC are ‘bringing Shakespeare back.’
