The BBC has turned to Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to front a new trailer showcasing the U.K. public broadcaster's drama output, old and new.

"All the world’s a stage," offers the star, going on to recite the famous line from Shakespeare’s As You Like It and introducing a series of clips, including Colin Firth’s lake swim in Pride and Prejudice, Tom Hiddleston on horseback in The Hollow Crown, and the original House of Cards.

Glimpses of new shows include scenes from the TV adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy, Wolf Hall with Damian Lewis and Esio Trot, starring Judi Dench and Dustin Hoffman.

But really, it’s all about the Cumberbatch. Watch the video below.
