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.

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.

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.

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 will premiere on ITV starting on Monday 5th January 2015 at 9pm and 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.
