David Tennant - Broadchurch

David Tennant plays DI Alec Hardy in Broadchurch. The original series won a BAFTA in May 2014 and was ITVís 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 starting on 4th March 2013 in the UK and on BBC America in the US from Wednesday 7th August. It has now been televised in Australia, France, Canada, Russia, Argentina, Sweden and Brazil.

In the original series, DI Alec Hardy was a gritty detective who investigated crimes which other policeman had been unable to solve. The drama explored what happens 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. Olivia Colman, Vicky McClure, Andrew Buchan, David Bradley, Jodie Whittaker, Will Mellor and Arthur Darvill also starred in the eight episode one hour series which was written by Chris Chibnall. The series was produced by Richard Stokes for Kudos Productions.

Filming started on Broadchurch on Monday 13th August 2012 in Somerset, Dorset and the Clevedon area and finished in the early hours of Wednesday 5th December. The read-through for at least the first filming block was on Tuesday 7th August.

The second series of Broadchurch started filming in May 2014 and ended in mid October (20 weeks). The subject matter for the second series was kept secret and no advance press screenings were arranged. As well as most of the original cast Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James DíArcy, Eve Myles and Meera Syal also appear.

The trailer for the second series of Broachurch has been posted to YouTube and the ITV Press Centre have issued a press pack for Series Two with brief cast interviews.

The second series of Broadchurch premiered on ITV on Monday 5th January 2015 at 9pm and will be on BBC America in the US from Wednesday 4th March. It is expected to be broadcast in various countries around the world over the coming months.

Daily Mail has a brief interview with David Tennant tonight from the What's On Stage Awards where he said about Broadchurch "I think we're a victim of our success to be honest. The first series was such an extraordinary thing. This country, we never allow lightening to strike twice in this country...we just don't let that happen. So, inevitably there was going to be a certain amount of 'it's not as good as the first time'. I think it is. I think it's a wonderful series that I'm very proud to be part of."
Daily Mail added that he remained tight-lipped about how he felt about a third series or a spin-off for their characters. "There's nothing finer than working with Olivia. I'd like to do that everyday of my life, but I think the story will lead that.
I think what's been wonderful about the second series of Broadchurch is that it's not been the same type of show as the first series and therefore the story has to determine whether there's more to tell.
