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.
