AUSTRALIA: Broadchurch Released On DVD Today

Broadchurch is released on region 4 DVD in Australia Today.
The hit UK series starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman has just finished a successful eight week run on ABC1

Broadchurch is an ITV detective series, involving the death of a young boy and the search for his killer, produced by Kudos and starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. The first series achieved overwhelming ratings for ITV, winning critical acclaim and generating huge publicity around the whodunnit mystery. The series launched to an audience of 6.15m in the UK. Week by week this audience grew, peaking at 8.08m by Episode 4, until it helped the channel take out the #1 primetime slot against BBC One. Given its success in the UK, a second season has been commissioned and will be in production early next year.

David Tennant plays Alec Hardy, a dour police detective posted to a tiny seaside town following a failed murder investigation. Almost immediately the body of a child is found on the beach and he has to join forces with the local detective, Ellie Miller, played by Olivia Colman, who had expected to be promoted into the role that Hardy took. The pair need to overcome their differences to solve the crime, but with the press snooping around and suspicion and hostility starting to tear the small community apart it is not going to be a straightforward investigation. Arthur Darvill, Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whittaker and David Bradley also star.
