Coming soon to BBC One

This weekend is the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival and we've been following it closely hoping to uncover some exciting bits of upcoming shows for your televisual delight.

It seems new(ish) controller of BBC One, Danny Cohen, has some big plans for the channel even amidst cuts to it's budget.

'We've commissioned a six-part improvised drama series from Dominic Savage for BBC One - Love Life - that will test the boundaries of fiction on the Channel. We are also announcing a run of new transmittable comedy pilots in order to supercharge the comedy development process for BBC One. Our aim here is to use a run of transmittable pilots as a way of reaching out to joyous new things, in the way we managed with Being Human on BBC Three.'

By far the most exciting thing so far has been the new showreel for upcoming BBC One programmes.

Several bits stand out for us including: our first real look at the new series of Sherlock; a brand new comedy 'The Royal Bodyguard' starring Sir David Jason; 'Call the midwife' new drama with Miranda Hart; Childhood favourite 'The Borrowers' is back starring Stephen Fry and Christoper Eccleston; and singing competition 'The Voice' where the only thing that's important is vocal ability.

Take a look below and let us know your thoughts.
