From the mind of Doctor Who and Sherlock writer Steve Moffat comes Inside Man, a thriller which questions who is capable of murder and what it takes to kill another human being.

The BBC drama will see four unlikely characters drawn together in this twisty tale, including death row prisoner and criminologist Jefferson Grieff (played by Stanley Tucci), English vicar Harry Watling (David Tennant), investigative journalist Beth Davenport, and maths tutor Janice Fife (Dolly Wells).

Speaking about the new series, Tennant said he was attracted to the project after reading the script which he found “huge intriguing”, saying the story was “very particular to Steven Moffat’s brain”.

He said part of the appeal was trying to figure out how the storylines between the UK and US were connected with the audience trying to figure it out as the series went along.

Tennant said this set-up was part of the puzzle and teased viewers would witness some “almost breath-taking awfulness”.

The star said of Harry: “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.”

He added about the plot: “Steven described it as a sitcom that goes terribly wrong.”

Hollywood star Tucci said he had signed up to Inside Man because he was a fan of Sherlock and Moffat as well as working with director Paul McGuigan previously.

The Oscar-nominated star described Moffat as an “amazing writer” and praised his co-star Tennant as “great” while hailing the rest of the cast as an “amazing group of people”.

Reflecting on working with writer Moffat and the filming process, Tucci said: “It’s wonderful, there’s a lot to do, there’s a lot to say, it’s more like a play in a lot of ways for actors than it is for a television show. It’s not shot like a play, it’s shot like a television show.
