The mind palace of former Sherlock and Dracula co-creator Steven Moffat is about to get busy again. We had the good fortune to cross paths earlier this month with the former Doctor Who showrunner in the hotel lobby during the 2020 BBC Showcase in Liverpool along with his wife and Hartswood Films Executive Producer, Sue Vertue. They took a moment to excitedly talk about their forthcoming project, a crime thriller entitled Inside Man.

The 4-part series tells the story about a prisoner on death row in the US and a woman who’s trapped in a cellar under an English vicarage, whose lives interlink in the most unexpected way. Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, commissioned instantly saying, “The script is a page-turner and grips you from the outset”. He went on to add that “…Charlotte Moore (Director of BBC Content) and I couldn’t resist bringing this story to BBC One.

Inside Man is set to begin production late next year so, unfortunately, we don’t expect to see this on the BBC or, possibly, PBS until 2021.
