Watch The First Three Minutes Of BBC America's Orphan Black
In addition to the return of Doctor Who, BBC America watchers also have the debut of Orphan Black to look forward to. The thriller is set to premiere next week, and above is the first three minutes, which give us a very brief but jarring introduction to Tatiana Maslany's Sarah, an outsider who's said to be living on the fringes and surviving by her wits as an English orphan.
As the first three minutes of the series - which come courtesy of EW - indicate, Sarah's dealing with her own problems when she comes face to face with a woman who looks exactly like herself. And after sparing her shoes from total distruction, this mysterious twin throws herself in front of a train, leaving Sarah to quickly snatch up her identity amidst the chaos. Or that's what we're left to assume as the clip cuts off, and it certainly would fit in with the whole "living by her wits" thing. While other people panic, she's the kind of gal who grabs the shoes and purse and takes off.
As you might surmise, there's more to this story than merely a case of borrowed (inherited?) identity. Taking over this stranger's life, which includes her boyfriend and her bank account, leads the character into a huge mystery that involves cloning. Sarah's problems may get even more complicated. We'll have to wait and see how the story unfolds when Orphan Black debuts Saturday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
