Arthur Darvill in Pelican Blood

Tennant, Darvill to Star in Broadchurch

Exploring what happens to a small community when it suddenly becomes the focus of a major event Broadchurch, a brand new eight part drama by Chris Chibnall (Torchwood) will see David Tennant star alongside outgoing Doctor Who companion Arthur Darvill in a Kudos production (Life on Mars) for ITV.

As reported in Unreality Television, Tennant will star as DI Alec Hardy, a newly promoted, out of town detective who arrives in the picturesque coastal town of Broadchurch, where the death of local boy threatens to tear the community apart under the oppressive media scrutiny.

Broadchurch features a host of British acting talent including former Doctor Who guest star Olivia Coleman as DS Ellie Miller, who believes the case should have been hers and struggles to maintain a professional relationship with the touchy or unyielding Hardy, and Arthur Darvill, who plays local priest, Paul Coates.

Writer and creator Chris Chibnall, has wanted to tell this story for a long time:

Broadchurch focuses on a small British community which finds itself at the eye of a storm. In the wake of one boy’s death, the residents of Broadchurch come under scrutiny and suspicion…It’s a story of scale and intimacy, as the lives of the characters are laid bare.”

Vicky McClure, who recently starred with Tenannt in BBC1 drama True Love, will also feature, alongside Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Will Mellor.

Set to film on location in Portishead near Bristol and Dorset in August Broadchurch will air on screen next year.

 



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
