IRELAND: Broadchurch Comes To TV3 Next Week

Viewers in Éire will be able to watch the award winning ITV series Broadchurch on local channel TV3 starting from Wednesday 8th January.

The eight part drama series Broadchurch, created by Chris Chibnall and starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman, explores what happens to a small community when it suddenly becomes the focus of a major event and is subjected to the full glare of the media spotlight.
Bloodied and dirty, Danny Latimer has been found dead on an idyllic beach, surrounded by rocks and a jutting cliff-face from where he may have fallen. Whilst his death remains unresolved, the picturesque coastal town of Broadchurch is at the heart of a major police investigation and a national media frenzy. David Tennant takes the role of DI Alec Hardy; an out-of-town, newly promoted police detective who takes the job local girl DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) believes should have been hers.  Ellie has to find reserves of patience and toughness to negotiate a professional relationship with the difficult and unyielding Hardy. Yet as the drama progresses, Hardy’s own secrets are laid bare.  Meanwhile Ellie is also emotionally involved with this case as her own son was Danny’s best friend.
One by one the residents of Broadchurch are drawn into the police enquiry and are implicated as the effects of a death in the community begins to impact on their hard-earned livelihoods. But can the town survive such a seismic shock during its economically crucial summer months? As the case drags on, the whole town will come under pressure: personal, economic, professional and emotional.
