Andrew Buchan gave very little away about the second series of Broadchurch which he is currently filming in the West Country. Appearing on the Steve Wright Show on BBC Radio 2 this afternoon he said that the series, like series 1 of the award winning drama, was very much under wraps.
Andrew was in the studio to promote his new BBC Two series The Honourable Woman, created by Hugo Blick and co-starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. The drama, a familial epic set against the backgroup of complex politics, international espionage and conspiracy, begins tonight at 9pm.
Andrew will also soon be seen in the ITV historical drama The Great Fire about the Fire of London.
Of Broadchurch Andrew would only reveal that they were a month into filming with three months left to go. He said that the story would be as dark as, if not darker than the first series and it was incredibly emotional, but that there were some brilliant new additions to the cast. He admitted too that he was leaving straight after the interview to recommence filming at 'a secret location'.
Many of the original cast of Broadchurch will return for the second series, with David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker, Joe Sims and Jonathan Bailey already confirmed. Exciting new additions include Charlotte Rampling, Eve Myles, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D'Arcy and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Andrew left no doubt about how thrilling he was finding the shoot
"It's a joy to be back with that family," he said.
Series two of Broadchurch written by Chris Chibnall and produced by Kudos and Imaginary Friends for ITV is currently shooting in various locations around the West Country. No broadcast date has been announced yet, but it is thought to be sometime early in 2015.
