Vicky McClure Says That Broadchurch Viewers Will Be Stunned By The Final Reveal

Vicky McClure, who plays sly journalist Karen White in the gripping ITV drama series Broadchurch says that viewers will be in for a big shock when the identity of the killer is finally revealed. Audiences have been trying to guess who killed young Danny Latimer over the last five weeks, and writer Chris Chibnall has given them a wide cast of credible suspects from which to choose.

Vicky told the Sunday People: “Every day I get asked who the killer is – but I’m never going to say. We didn’t know until the end of the shoot. We filmed it not knowing, which was great because it added to the tension on set. When we did find out it was a big surprise. I think people are going to be shocked when it is revealed.”

The drama has even led to betting agents Ladbrookes opening a book on the likely killer. At the time of writing, DS Miller's husband Joe is evens favourite to be the murderer, while David Tennant's character DI Alec Hardy has crept up from an unfavoured 50/1 to odds of 8/1. Vicky herself, as Karen White, is given odds of 14/1.

David Tennant and Olivia Colman star in the eight part series as the two mismatched police detectives who are trying to solve the boy's murder in a small community that is being pulled apart by the impact of the event. The series continues on Monday 8th April at 9pm on ITV

Vicky also spoke about her support for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, a campaign group set up following the murder of a teenager to promote understanding of different subcultures within communities and to help stamp out hate crimes. Find out more here
