Filming has just begun on a brand new BBC Thriller and the first look is getting us excited to see Cold Feet's James Nesbitt star in a new role.

Bloodlands stars James as the lead, news which we've known for months, but now joining him will be Lisa Dwan (Top Boy), Lorcan Cranitch (Fortitude), Charlene McKenna (Ripper Street), Ian McElhinney (Derry Girls, Game of Thrones), Susan Lynch (Happy Valley) and other famous faces.

And now the first snaps from the show have been released, showing James, Lisa and Charlene in action.

James plays a Northern Irish police detective, Tom, who connects a car containing a suicide note with an old cold case that has huge personal significance.

Lisa Dwan will play Tori in 'Bloodlands' which is currently filming (

The show will follow his hunt for a legendary assassin known as 'Goliath,' an "explosive cat-and-mouse game where the stakes have never been higher," according to the BBC.

The thriller has been created by a new writer, Chris Brandon, but it's also being produced by Jed Mercurio - the creator behind Line of Duty and Bodyguard - so we know this series is in seriously good hands.

James Nesbitt says of his role: "It's great to be back making a drama in and about Northern Ireland, which now has a film and television industry as good as any in the world.

"We have compelling scripts from a brilliant young writer who was raised in County Down, which are very exciting and psychologically complex. I can't wait to start."

We really do love nothing more than settling down to watch an exciting new crime drama, so it's got our names written all over it.

BBC has not yet confirmed the launch date, but as it's already in production, later this year is highly likely.

But in the mean time we've got it covered. The Pale Horse starring Rufus Sewell has just dropped its first part, with its concluding episode to hit BBC One this Sunday.

You can catch up on iPlayer to bring you up to speed.

Charlene McKenna will play Niamh McGovern in the new series (

It's another creepy-sounding drama, but this one is based on Agatha Christie's book of the same name.

Or how about a binge-fest this weekend? The full series of teen drama Get Even will land on iPlayer on 15th February.

It centres around teen girls who want to teach school bullies a lesson by playing pranks on them. It's all fun until someone ends up dead...

We reckon if you're a Pretty Little Liars fan, this sounds like one for you.
