AMC has released a trailer for The Walking Dead‘s return, teasing the arrival of a major character from the comic book series. The second half of season 6 will pick up shortly after the fall of Alexandria, with new villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) poised to finally make his entrance.

Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has revealed that the upcoming series of the show could well be his last. In an interview with The Telegraph he said, “This could be my last. I love Doctor Who but it can be quite an insular world and I do want to do other things. There will come a time when this is over”. But with filming on the tenth series not even expected to start until later this year, we have some time yet before there’s a new face in the Tardis.

Following Call The Midwife‘s Christmas special, we now have a trailer for the show’s upcoming fifth season. The new series, set to premiere in January, finds Easter 1961 fast approaching with the nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House kept busy as ever.

BBC One has announced a new adaptation of Howard’s End, based on the novel by E. M. Forster. The new series, set to be written by Kenneth Lonergan (Gangs of New York), tells the story of three very different families at the start of the 20th century – the wealthy Wilcoxes, the intellectual Schlegels and the impoverished Basts.

The CW has released a trailer for its latest DC series Legends of Tomorrow, a spin off from Arrow and The Flash, which features a huge team up of heroes. Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) stars as Rip Hunter, a Time Master who brings together super powered people in an attempt to hunt an immortal warlord through history. Wentworth Miller (Prison Break), Victor Garber (Alias) and Neal McDonagh (Battlestar Galatica) also star.

BBC One has announced it is to team up with Jimmy McGovern (Banished) for a new six-part series described as a ‘state of the nation’ piece. The catholicism themed drama, titled Broken, will revolve around a local priest as both he and his flock struggle with their faith in a contemporary Britain.

BBC One also announced a new adaptation of Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White. The gothic novel, originally published in 1859, is sometimes described as the first detective story and tells of a man drawn into a world of insanity after he meets a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road.

Channel 4 has also released a trailer for the return of Indian Summers, which will air early in 2016. The new series, which tells of the end of British colonial rule in India, is set during the summer of 1935, with an assassination attempt on the Viceroy and the surprise arrival of Lord Hawthorne (James Fleet), indicating big changes in the British administration. Fleet (The Vicar of Dibley) is one of the many new faces this season, alongside Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons), Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under), Art Malik (Homeland), Sugandha Garg (My Name is Khan) and Arjun Mathur (My Friend Pinto).
