David Tennant sports striking new look in first pics from new BBC drama Inside Man

DAVID Tennant is getting holy as the first look of the new BBC drama shows the actor dressed as a vicar.

In a series of photos from the set, David looked serious as he sat in the driver's seat of a car.

He wore a blue shirt with a clerical collar, and his dark hair was swept back.

Other photos from the set of Inside Man show his co-stars, Lydia West and Dolly Wells.

The women were seen filming what looked like a serious chat outside a prison.

Lydia was wearing a denim jacket over a red dress summer dress and carrying a leather backpack.

While Dolly's character wore a long floral print skirt, cream button up shirt, flat black shoes and a green puffer jacket.

Best known for her breakout performance in It's a Sin's, Lydia, 27, is set to star in the series alongside the former Doctor Who, 49, which will be written by Steven Moffat.

Hollywood icon Stanley Tucci will be leading the cast of Inside Man.

The series will focus on a US death row prisoner, an abducted teacher and a vicar in an English village.

Giant streaming platform Netflix will also broadcast the new four-part programme, which will see the three very different characters crossing paths in an unexpected way.

Moffat and his wife Sue Vertue, who will serve as an executive producer on the show, are very pleased to be working on the new series.

"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."

Netflix's Chris Sussman gushed: "We're delighted to team up with the BBC on another brilliant series from the ingenious mind of Steven Moffat.

"It's impossible to say too much about Inside Man without giving away spoilers – so let's just say the scripts are fiendishly clever, the cast is fantastic and at this point in time nobody but Steven knows how it's going to end.

"We're thrilled to continue our fruitful partnership with BBC One, BBC Studios and Hartswood Films and are excited about bringing this series to a global audience."

Filming is set to begin later this year and the show will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on Netflix outside of the UK and Ireland.

Lydia posted a picture of the announcement on her Instagram account along with the caption: "This team!", followed by two love hearts.
