New footage from Sherlock series 3 features in a trailer for BBC One’s “original British drama” programming, which also shows off two new series starring David Tennant and 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi, respectively.
Released this morning on their YouTube channel, the promo showcases new series The Musketeers (starring new Doctor Peter Capaldi), The Great Train Robbery, Quirke, The Escape Artist (10th Doctor David Tennant), What Remains, By Any Means, and returning Ripper Street, alongside the fervently anticipated third series of the great detective. Check it out below!
Among the new Sherlock footage revealed today, we see Benedict Cumberbatch emulating Daniel Craig in Skyfall with a rooftop view of the city of London. We are also treated to a first official look at Amanda Abbington, who will play a new love interest for Martin Freeman’s John Watson.
Abbington (who also happens to be Freeman’s real life long-term girlfriend) seemingly confirmed that it is her character we glimpse racing around on a motorbike in red. She tweeted:
did you see the motorbike…

Peter Capaldi can be seen briefly as the antagonist of The Musketeers, his last television work before he takes over the titular character of Doctor Who from Matt Smith, who will bow out in this year’s Christmas special.
Sherlock will return later this year or early 2014 in “The Empty Hearse” (penned by Mycroft actor Mark Gaitiss), before continuing his adventures with Watson in “The Sign of Three” and “His Last Vow.”
The rest of BBC One’s impressive plethora of drama will air at currently unconfirmed times in the next few months.
