Broadchurch 3 starts filming

David Tennant and Olivia Colman (photographed on their first day on set of the third series) reprise their roles as DI Alec Hardy and DS Ellie Miller, with Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan returning to play Beth and Mark Latimer

ITV’s third series of Broadchurch started filming yesterday, with Sir Lenny Henry and Roy Hudd joining David Tennant and Olivia Colman on the cast. Other new faces will include Julie Hesmondhalgh, Sarah Parish, Charlie Higson and Georgina Campbell.

The new series will herald a brand new case for Miller and Hardy, with the detectives reuniting to investigate a serious sexual assault.

‘This is the final chapter of Broadchurch,’ said Chris Chibnall. ‘We have one last story to tell, featuring both familiar faces and new characters. I hope it’s a compelling and emotional farewell to a world and show that means so much to me.’

After the huge success of series 1, the second season was, let’s face it, a crashing and messy disappointment. With this cast, it would be great if Broadchurch could finish on a high.
