While Benedict Cumberbatch may have starred in various Hollywood blockbusters, the actor remains hasn’t forgotten those BBC roots. 

Sure, a fifth season of Sherlock may be years away, but that’s because getting both Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s schedules to match has become almost impossible. 

Instead, Cumberbatch will soon return to the BBC for the chilling drama The Child in Time, an adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 1987 novel of the same name.

The story focuses on how Stephen and wife Julie — played by Kelly Macdonald — coping with grief after their daughter is abducted. The BBC has since released a chilling 40-second trailer for the drama. Watch above.

The Doctor Strange and Star Trek actor also acts as producer, marking the first drama to be made under his production company SunnyMarch TV. 

“I read the novel years ago and it stayed with me – profound, beautiful and very moving,” Cumberbatch previously said. “Only Ian McEwan could write about loss with such telling honesty.”

Directed by Ballers’ Julian Farino and written for screen by The Last Kingdom’s Stephen Butchard, The Child in Time comes to BBC One soon.
