David Tennant - Broadchurch

David Tennant played DI Alec Hardy and Olivia Colman played DS Ellie Miller in the three series of Broadchurch. The original series won a BAFTA 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 was 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 continued until October. The series started being broadcast on Monday 27th February 2017 on ITV and will be shown on BBC America in the US starting on Wednesday 28th June. David and Olivia were 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 were new cast members with significant roles.

It consisted 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 came under scrutiny. The third series was set three years since the second series.

At the time of its broadcast the Broadchurch final episode was officially the most-watched television show of 2017. The figures (which included ITV + 1) showed that 11.605 million people watched the episode.

Overall the third series of Broadchurch had an average of 10.7 million viewers. This was a 1.5 million increase on Series Two and 1.3 million on the first series.

Broadchurch Series Three was released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday 24th April in the UK.
Also a Broadchurch combined Series One, Two and Three 6 disc box-set was also released on the same day.
Season Three was released in the US and Canada on DVD only on Tuesday 12th September.

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.
