BBC Trailer Shows Anglophiles What They’ll Be Watching Over the Next 12 Months [VIDEO]


What have we Anglophiles got to look forward to in 2013? Aside from Doctor Who, that is. This two-minute trailer for BBC One’s upcoming season has added several things to my To Watch list, among them season (sorry, series) three of Luther, The Village (O HAI John Simm!), Miranda (aka That Show I’ve Been Meaning to Watch for Like Three Years Now, I’ll Get Around To It in 2013 I Swear), The White Queen (that War of the Roses drama told from the women’s perspective), and Ripper Street.

But not Sherlock. Because that’s nowhere close to filming yet, as Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are off being über-successful, those jerks.

    Judging by the first episode, Ripper Street should be good. (Shirtless Jerome Flynn!)

    Hi, Ripper Street started this Sunday in the UK and seems promising: the bare knuckle fighter at 1:19 may seem familiar from Game of Thrones…

    What about “Orphan Black”?

    Would prefer to see ITV. Can we have the Chase instead?

    Anglophiles and, you know, people who live in Britain.

    Oh Blandings! Timothy Spall as Lord Emsworth! Beeb you know the way to my heart.

    Shhh, don’t tell them it’s possible to live in Britain, we’ll be drowning in Whovian immigrants! ;)

    Yes, my first thought also. Especially because the trailer is technically aimed at people watching the BBC in Britain rather than abroad on channels such as BBC America, so I suppose it’s for “British viewers…and Anglophiles.” Just struck me as a little weird.

    Yes, quite. I saw this article and I was like “Or, y’know, British people. And just because it’s on TV it doesn’t mean I’ll be watching it.”

    This love affair with Britain is a bit… boring, isn’t it?

    Behold, plebians, the awe and wonder that is Miranda Hart. You likely saw her in those downloaded copies of Hyperdrive you were watching for Nick Frost (and likely ignoring everyone else including the amazing Kevin Eldon), but she’s actually gotten funnier.

    Don’t forget Mark Williams and David Walliams in there as well. Mark’s playing Beach, which will be a delight.

    Ah the dry well that is British Television. I watch Dr Who…and that’s about it…

    FYI I am British.

    The video is posted to YouTube (headquartered in the U.S.), not the version localized for the UK which is at: youtube.com/?hl=en-GB&gl=GB. The Mary Sue, also headquartered in the U.S. No need to belittle, considering the majority of the audience of this site is assumed to be in the U.S.

    Can I ask where the heck you’re gonna watch Miranda in 2013? Is it definitely coming to BBC America or U.S. DVD release or iTunes or Hulu or something, she asked hopefully? I caught an episode on YouTube and was all “Shut up and take my money! I must watch this!” and I can’t yet find it anywhere (legally) for U.S. audiences or on Region 1/Region 0.

    Granted, I prefer to watch online/download (again, legally), for reasons of not wanting to deal with clutter if I don’t have to, but when the Discworld Watch series comes along, if they pull this sort of thing, I’m buying ALL the DVD players and ALL the DVDs…

    Situations like this make me wish the BBC had some sort of subscription scheme for American cousins who want to watch the British shows. And financially support them as well.

    As John Simm can do no wrong, I’m anxiously awaiting The Village on BBC and Mad Dogs on Sky.
    If you’re in the States, there are ways to watch shows on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. I use programs like Tunnelbear and Expat Shield. For Sky programs, I find a way to download them. But I do buy the DVDs as soon as they become available. I pre-ordered Everyday last November.

    It’s a shame that BBC America has to cut a nice chunk out of every episode to make room for 18 minutes of commercials each hour. Very unsatisfactory. And enough with the White Chapel/Ripper Street dreck when the Beeb offers so much more .
