Jodie Whittaker Talks About Broadchurch 2

Jodie Whittaker has been talking to Radio Times about the follow up to Broadchurch and has given a heavy hint that it will be a follow-on story rather than a prequel as some rumours have suggested. However, she isn't even sure whether she will be involved yet.

"I could be in all of it. I could be in none of it," she says. "So I'm forever texting writer Chris Chibnall just to remind him of my existence."

Chris Chibnall has started work on the second series for ITV and last week told US site Entertainment Weekly that he had plotted out the whole of the first episode already. Jodie has faith that the narrative will be of as high quality as the first and suggests that it will carry on from events of the first

"He pitched it as a bigger series, so it's not that he's writing a second series for the sake of it; he's writing what he originally pitched," she explains. "For him, the story always continued."

Broadchurch, starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill and Jodie Whittaker is currently airing in Russia, Latin America and Finland and will soon arrive in France and Spain. Work on series two is thought to begin in spring 2014, while Fox in America have commissioned their own version of the show with Chris Chibnall as executive producer, shooting early in 2014.
