Taken on location in Clevedon (that’s in Somerset, geography bods!), the pictures show Tennant looking a bit dishevelled when you compare them to how he looked as the Tenth Doctor. They have previously worked together on 2011′s United, as well as all the way back in 2007, in the marmite episode 42.
For the uninitiated, Broadchurch is about a police investigation into the death of an 11 year old, whose death has shaken up the town in which he lived as each of them could be a suspect.
Also starring in the drama are Arthur Darvill and Olivia Colman, who you may remember as the female incarnation of Prisoner Zero in The Eleventh Hour.
The series will be shown on ITV1 in early 2013.
