David Tennant's new three-part thriller The Escape Artist is one of the many hotly anticipated dramas that feature. David plays Will Burton, a talented junior barrister with a reputation for success in getting people out of tight legal corners, hence his nickname of 'The Escape Artist'. But his brilliance comes back to bite him with chilling results after he wins freedom for the accused in a violent murder. The Escape Artist is written by David Wolstencroft and directed by Brian Welsh and co-stars Ashley Jensen, Toby Kebbell, Sophie Okonedo and Tony Gardner. It is expected to begin on BBC One in October.

Other dramas featured include series 3 of Sherlock, The Musketeers starring the newly announced Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi and Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall's latest venture The Great Train Robbery
