New Broadchurch Interview Clip From ITV With David Tennant

Broadchurch stars David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Pauline Quirke all feature in a new behind-the-scenes video clip released by ITV today. ITN Meridian news reporter Divya Kohli caught up with the cast in West Bay, Dorset on a damp November day to find out more about the new eight part crime drama. The video clip also features some new, as yet unseen clips from the first episode.

David Tennant and Olivia Colman talk about the contrast between their two characters, the dour and abrupt outsider DI Alec Hardy and the upbeat local police officer DS Ellie Miller.

"I've been shipped in from a very metropolitan murder squad, " David says of Hardy,  "And as I see it I've been dumped out in the sticks and I've got to cope with..."

"Smiley!" finishes Olivia Colman, who plays the friendly, likeable Miller "He's rude to everybody!" she adds of Hardy.

Bird Of A Feather actress Pauline Quirke plays the mysterious Susan Wright, one of many characters in the drama to have a murky past that will emerge over the next few weeks. "Everyone at Broadchurch has got a secret. We just don't know what it is yet." She also reveals how desperate she was to take part in the series. "I just stopped short of pleading!" she said.

Broadchurch is a new spine-tingling thriller created by Doctor Who writer Chris Chibnall . It is the story of a town wrapped up in the murder of a young boy and stars David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whiitaker and Pauline Quirke. It was produced by Richard Stokes and directed by James Strong and Euros Lyn.
