It’s premiering the same night as Doctor Who on BBC America so hopefully some Whovians will stick around to give this interesting story a try. Orphan Black is an original scripted series for BBC America focusing on the story of Sarah, an orphan who gets more trouble than she expected after stealing the identity of a woman who looks just like her, a woman who also happened to commit suicide right in front of her [Warning, that is included in the scene you will see here]. Check out the first three minutes of the premiere episode thanks to Entertainment Weekly. Also check out the full trailer here. Orphan Black premieres March 30 at 9:00pm ET/PT, as part of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday.
