Former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston has been cast as a drug lord in a new BBC thriller, The Shadow Line.
The actor - who recently played John Lennon in the BBC's Lennon Naked - is joined in the cast by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sir Antony Sher and Stephen Rea.
The six-part "noir thriller" looks at the impact of an underworld figure on a wide range of characters.
Written, produced and directed by Hugo Blick, the series will be filmed in the Isle of Man and screened next year.
Blick's previous work includes Marion and Geoff, a dark comedy series which starred Rob Brydon.
Filming begins in the Isle of Man this month.
