The storyline remains a mystery for the time being.

First-look images from Steven Moffat’s thriller Inside Man have been revealed, giving us our first look at David Tennant, Stanley Tucci and other big name cast members in the mysterious project.

Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps for the four-part series, which is scheduled to launch on BBC One and BBC iPlayer next year, with only a brief (and very cryptic) synopsis released thus far.

It teases that the show will follow a prisoner on death row in the United States (played by Tucci), a vicar in a quiet English town (Tennant) and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, whose lives intersect in a “most unexpected way”. Your guess is as good as ours.


Despite the lack of details, Inside Man is shaping up to be one of the BBC’s most-anticipated upcoming dramas, with Moffat and executive producer Sue Vertue describing the all-star cast as the “best ensemble we’ve ever had the chance to work with”.


Ben Irving, Commissioning Editor for BBC Drama, added: “Steven Moffat 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. This will be a ‘must-watch’ when it lands on BBC One and iPlayer next year.”

The first-look images include a sneak peek at Tennant in his role as small-town vicar Harry Watling after a service (above), as well as an advance look at Tucci’s death row inmate Jefferson Grieff as he is led down a gloomy prison corridor.

It’s A Sin breakout star Lydia West will also star in BBC One’s Inside Man as Beth Davenport, with the image below revealing she is connected to Tucci’s prisoner, but there’s no word yet on whether she’s his lawyer, a reporter, a relative or someone else entirely.

Dolly Wells in Inside Man

Dolly Wells reunites with Moffat following their collaboration on 2020’s three-part Dracula series, seen grinning in this initial reveal of her character, who goes by the name Janice Fife.


The final image from Inside Man introduces Hanna star Lyndsey Marshal as another key character in the show, Mary Watling, who will presumably be some relation to Tennant’s vicar – most likely his wife or sister.


Accompanying these images was an announcement detailing Inside Man’s supporting cast, which includes Atkins Estimond (Hightown), Mark Quarterly (Cursed), Tilly Vosburgh (Maigret), Louis Oliver (Midnight Mass), Kate Dickie (The Witch) and Dylan Baker (Hunters).

Inside Man is coming next year to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

Inside Man


EXCLUSIVENetflix has boarded its latest BBC drama, taking the international rights to Steven Moffat’s limited series Inside Man, which has assembled a stellar above-the-line cast ahead of production taking place later this year.

Deadline can reveal that Oscar-nominated Supernova and Spotlight star Stanley Tucci has been set in the title role of the Inside Man, while he will be joined by Doctor Who and Des actor David Tennant, and The Pursuit of Love and Dracula star Dolly Wells. Rounding out the headline cast is Lydia West, who featured in the acclaimed Channel 4/HBO Max series It’s A Sin.


Doctor Who and Sherlock writer Steven Moffat is keeping plot details firmly under wraps, so much so that only he himself knows how the story will conclude. That means Netflix and the BBC are in the dark about how Inside Man will end.


What we do know is the four-part Hartswood Films series centers on a prisoner on death row in the U.S., a vicar in a quiet English town, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, as they cross paths in the most unexpected way.

Sherlock director Paul McGuigan will helm the series, with Alex Mercer producing. Executive producers are Sue Vertue for Hartswood Films and Ben Irving for the BBC. Chris Sussman oversees for Netflix. Inside Man was first commissioned in 2019 by BBC drama director Piers Wenger and Charlotte Moore, BBC chief content officer.

Husband and wife Moffat and Vertue said they can’t wait to “crawl out of our lockdown bunker” to get to work on the series, which Sussman described as “fiendishly clever.” Wenger added that the combination of the script and cast will create “television magic.”

BBC Studios brokered the deal with Netflix, which will stream the show outside of the UK and Ireland. It’s another example of the BBC and Netflix partnering on a major drama, with other recent examples including The Serpent and the upcoming supernatural horror series Red Rose.

Inside Man has echoes of Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ 2020 series Dracula, which was also a co-production between the BBC and Netflix. The three-part series also starred Wells and West in the retelling of Bram Stoker’s legendary story of a blood-sucking count from Transylvania.

Tucci is repped by CAA, Curtis Brown and Anonymous Content, while Tennant is repped by Independent Talent and UTA. Wells’ representatives are Independent Talent, UTA, and Anonymous Content, and West is rep
