David Tennant, Stanley Tucci, Dolly Wells and Lydia West confirmed for Steven Moffat’s Inside Man

Oh woah, now here’s a cast confirmation and Mr Moffat… returns!

Directed by Paul McGuigan, and produced by Hartswood Films for BBC One and Netflix, this new four part mini-series follows a prisoner on death row in the US, a Vicar in a quiet English town, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, as they cross paths in the most unexpected way…

Starring David TennantDolly Wells and Lydia West, they’ll lead the cast of a major new thriller from BAFTA and Emmy award-winning writer Steven Moffat, alongside Stanley Tucci in the title role of the Inside Man. Husband and wife team Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue, executive producer for Hartswood Films, commented: 

“We’re a bit stunned, and very excited, at the acting talent we’re managing to assemble for this show. Can’t wait to crawl out of our lockdown bunker and get to work.”


Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, added:

“BBC One viewers will already know the television magic created when Steven Moffat writes for David, Dolly and Lydia. With the fantastic Stanley Tucci alongside them as our Inside Man, everything is in place for a series that will have the nation gripped.”

Caroline Stone, Director of Independent Drama at BBC Studios, said:

“We are very excited to be working once again with Hartswood Films, the BBC and Netflix to bring another fantastic series from Steven Moffat to audiences around the world. Inside Man is set to be an unmissable drama with a hugely talented line-up both on and off screen. From the very successful partnerships we’ve had in the past with Netflix, we are optimistic it will be another hit globally.”

Inside Man is a 4×60 drama for BBC One and Netflix. It is created and written by Steven Moffat, directed by Paul McGuigan, with Alex Mercer as producer. Executive producers are Sue Vertue for Hartswood Films and Ben Irving for the BBC. Chris Sussman will oversee for Netflix.
