Cut and pasted from the Radio Times Website:
The actor best known for playing Jim Moriarty is a troubled cop in a new BBC1 series. We won't reveal how Andrew Scott finds himself in the rather sorry state you see above, for fear of spoiling upcoming new thriller Blackout. But we can tell you that the Sherlock star, best known as criminal mastermind Jim Moriarty, is on the other side of the law here, playing Dalien Bevan, a troubled cop obsessed with his ex-wife.
Blackout, also stars Christopher Eccleston (currently appearing in Antigone at the National Theatre), and begins on Monday 2 July at 9pm on BBC1.
