Magic, mystery and history come to BBC Drama this Autumn


This autumn the BBC reveals an unparalleled line-up of drama across four channels that will have something for audiences of all ages and tastes to enjoy.


Across the coming months there are more than 70 hours of brand new drama sitting alongside many returning favourites.


On BBC One we have the hotly anticipated magical drama of Merlin alongside new nine o'clock pieces such as Apparitions starring Martin Shaw, Wallander featuring Kenneth Branagh and a remake of the classic Seventies series Survivors.


There will also be stunning new interpretations of Tess Of The D'Urbervilles and Little Dorritt.


Elsewhere we see the return of Heroes (series 3) to BBC Two alongside powerful single dramas God On Trial and A Number. In addition Einstein & Eddington stars the ever popular David Tennant in a very different and powerful role.


On BBC Three and BBC Four there is also plenty for audiences to enjoy.


Spooks Code 9 continues on BBC Three and on BBC Four a series of biopics featuring among others, Mills & Boon, will give viewers the chance to enjoy a unique look at some of our most well loved national treasures.


Head Of BBC Drama Commissioning Ben Stephenson said: "This Autumn we have worked hard to ensure there is a wide range of drama that will entertain, challenge and engage audiences.


"Whether it is family entertainment, period drama or the single play that you enjoy there will be plenty this autumn to keep you entertained."
