Step aside, Hot Priest from Fleabag, as David Tennant is due to star in the upcoming drama Inside Man and we think Andrew Scott might have a run for his money! But handsome vicars aside, what is the upcoming drama about? Find out everything you need to know here…
What is Inside Man about?
The four-part miniseries, created by Sherlock and Dracula screenwriter Steven Moffat, follows a prisoner on death row in the US, a vicar in a quiet English town, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, as they cross paths in the most unexpected way. Intrigued? So are we!
Teasing the new drama in a recent interview with RadioTimes.com, Steven said: "Well, let's keep it mysterious. I'm trying to think of anything I can say about it.
"Most detective shows are whodunits. This one is more like a 'who will do it'. Or possibly a 'you done it'. Its central idea is anyone can be a murderer. And it won't be the one you expect."

Who is in Inside Man's cast?
There are a host of Steven's favourite stars, including Dracula alumni Dolly Well and Lyndsey Marshal and Doctor Who star David Tennant. The show will also star It's a Sin actress Lydia West and the one and only Stanley Tucci, who will play the 'Inside Man'.
Stanley Tucci, what did you do?!
Chatting about casting, Steven said: "This is the best ensemble we've ever had the chance to work with. It’s a rare privilege to see scripts come to life as beautifully as this." Commissioning Editor at BBC Drama, Ben Irving, added: "Steven… has created another brilliantly original and darkly playful series in Inside Man and it’s no surprise that it has attracted such an extraordinary cast."

Viewers might have a while to wait, as Ben confirmed that the show will be released to audiences everywhere – on BBC One and iPlayer in the UK and Ireland and on Netflix everywhere else – sometime in 2022. In the meantime, we have been treated to plenty of snaps from the show, and we can't wait!
