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

“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.

Back in January, it was announced that Des star David Tennant, 49, is joining up with his father-in-law Peter Davison, 69, to reprise their roles as the Time Lord for a Doctor Who spin-off.

Davison played the Fifth Doctor in the early 80s, while Tennant was vote the ‘best Doctor of all time’ for his tenure as the Tenth Doctor between 2005 – 2010.

They are joining forces for the audio special, Out of Time: The Gates of Hell, which sees the two Doctors battling the Cybermen, cyborgs who are one of the many recurring nemeses of Doctor Who.
