"Thick," "Fringe," "Empire," "Who" Promos

Various Fall show premieres kick off both in the U.S. and U.K. in the next few weeks, so promo trailers have started going online for all the various shows making comebacks.

First up in the U.K. there's the much anticipated return of that most savage of political satires - "The Thick of It". The focus of the trailer however has shifted from the regulars to the opposition who're now in power with the Coalition Government.

Peter Capaldi's Malcolm Tucker still pops in with the best line of the trailer while everyone's favourite cat rapist, Roger Allam's Peter Mannion, looks like he'll be insanely good. The seven episode fourth series kicks off September 8th on BBC2

"Fringe" is back for its fifth and final season of thirteen episodes starting September 28th and FOX has released a new promo trailer with a bunch of new footage and a hell of a final shot.

Lucky Thompson is looking worried as both rival criminal and government forces tighten the noose around him in the third season of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" which premieres September 16th.

Finally the first five episodes of the new season of "Doctor Who" kick off this Saturday on BBC1 in the UK and BBC America in the U.S. and a trailer for that first episode, which sees the return of the Daleks, is out below:
