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.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

The Girls of Summer (Television)

While television is largely populated by male-helmed vehicles this summer (television is always populated by male-helmed vehicles), female characters are popping up in all sorts of interesting ways.
