The 11th Doctor

Doctor Who in BBC 2013 Drama Trailer!

A bodiless hand, shifting frame after frame of evocative, brilliant drama projecting somewhere off into the near future where the growing sense of pride in its ‘Original British Drama’ can only be expressed by Elvis Presley’s The Wonder of You – it’s the BBC’s brand new trail for its upcoming productions and it’s a wonder indeed.

While there are only a handful of clips from Doctor Who – featuring just the Doctor and his mysterious new companion Clara – there’s more than enough quality drama to whet your appetite for the year ahead.

Also glimpsed was David Tennant in The Politician’s Husband and scenes from detective drama Quirke featuring Gabriel Byrne and Merlin star Colin Morgan.

Cillian Murphy period drama Peaky Blinders, Gillian Anderson crime thriller The Fall, new zombie drama In The Flesh and Lacey Turner’s new project Our Girl also feature in the 3-minute clip.

The corporation’s controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson spoke defiantly about the Beeb’s contribution to world drama:

Drama and the BBC are inseparable – it is written through the BBC like a stick of rock. No other broadcaster in the world has drama so firmly in its DNA.

Ultimately I can boil this down to one thing – I want to make the BBC the hallmark of quality drama and the automatic home for the best talent in the world.

We also spotted Torchwood‘s Eve Myles in a single shot from what we think is Frankie, while Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are also evident in the 2013 series of Sherlock – something not generally expected until the latter half of the year!


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
