David Tennant - Broadchurch

David Tennant - Broadchurch

David Tennant plays DI Alec Hardy and Olivia Colman plays DS Ellie Miller in Broadchurch. The original series won a BAFTA in 2014 and was ITV’s highest rated drama of 2013. The series finale was watched by over 10 million and consistently delivered in excess of 9 million viewers. It was broadcast in 2013 in the UK and all around the world.

In the original series, the drama explored what happened to a small community when it suddenly became the focus of a major event and was subjected to the full glare of the media spotlight. Broadchurch is written by Chris Chibnall.

The second series of Broadchurch was broadcast in early 2015. The subject matter was kept secret and no advance press screenings were arranged. When it was broadcast it was revealed that it looked at the trial of the killer of Danny Latimer and Hardy's previous, unsolved case, Sandbrook.

Filming on the third and final series of Broadchurch started on Monday 23rd May 2016 and the series is expected to be broadcast in 2017. David and Olivia will be joined in the third series by Arthur Darvill, Andrew Buchan and Jodie Whittaker from the first two series. Sir Lenny Henry, Roy Hudd, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Georgina Campbell, Sarah Parish, Charlie Higson and Mark Bazeley are new cast members for significant roles.

It will consist of a brand new case for Miller and Hardy with the detectives teaming up to investigate a serious sexual assault and its consequences as the drama's Dorset community comes under scrutiny.

David Tennant reprised a similar role in the American remake of Broadchurch which filmed from January to May 2014. This ten part drama was called Gracepoint and had a different killer. It was broadcast on Fox Television on Thursday evenings from October 2014 but was not renewed for a second season. It was shown in the UK on ITV Encore.
