Inside Man begins on BBC1 this autumn and we guarantee it’s going to have you hooked – but when does it start, how many episodes is it, and where’s it filmed?

The gripping storyline follows four people who seem to be living very separate lives…

But viewers will soon see that their lives are very much entangled!

Here’s everything you need to know about the new BBC One show…

What is Inside Man on BBC One about?

Inside Man weaves together three storylines that have nothing in common at first glance – a vicar in a quaint English town, a prisoner on death row in the US, and a maths teacher.

All three of these seemingly separate lives intertwine in a dilemma that could lead one of them to murder…

And then there’s a journalist who can sniff a story.

Speaking about his character Vicar Harry Watling, David Tennant says: “[It’s] very hard to sum up, because there are two separate worlds going side by side.

“Part of the joy of watching the show is wondering if these worlds are ever going to collide.

“But from my character’s point of view, it’s a story about a man who, in pursuit of doing the right thing, makes a series of catastrophically bad decisions.”

Speaking of the script, David Tennant said: “I just read the script and wanted to be part of it.

“It’s very particular to Steven Moffat’s brain.

“When you read that first episode it’s hugely intriguing.”

The show is written by Sherlock creator Steven Moffat, who also served as showrunner on Doctor Who.

Sounds like a very dark version of Love Actually… We can’t wait!

Des star David Tennant plays Harry Watling, the small town vicar.

It’s a Sin star Lydia West plays journalist Beth Davenport.
