BROADCHURCH: Sir Lenny Henry & Roy Hudd Join The Third Series


Sir Lenny Henry and Roy Hudd are the latest new additions announced to be joining the cast of the third and final series of Broadchurch.

David Tennant and Olivia Colman reprise their roles as DI Alec Hardy and DS Ellie Miller, with Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan returning to play Beth and Mark Latimer.

To coincide with the commencement of filming, ITV confirmed that BAFTA winner Sir Lenny Henry and Roy Hudd will join the impressive ensemble cast alongside National Television Award winner Julie Hesmondhalgh, BAFTA winner Georgina Campbell, and acclaimed actors Sarah Parish, Charlie Higson and Mark Bazeley who take significant roles in the eight part series to be co-produced for ITV by Kudos, Imaginary Friends and Sister Pictures.

Arthur Darvill also returns as local Vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe, Charlotte Beaumont as Mark and Beth’s daughter Chloe, and Adam Wilson as Ellie’s son Tom.
The new series will herald a brand new case for Miller and Hardy, with the detectives reuniting to investigate a serious sexual assault.
“This is the final chapter of Broadchurch,” said Chris Chibnall. “We have one last story to tell, featuring both familiar faces and new characters. I hope it’s a compelling and emotional farewell to a world and show that means so much to me.”
The series explores the consequences of a serious sexual assault as a Dorset community comes under the scrutiny of Hardy and Miller’s investigation. Based on a year of research with Dorset-based organisations who specialise in dealing with victims of sexual assault, and police advisors who specialise in investigating crimes of sexual violence, Broadchurch’s final chapter looks at the emotional cost to all of those involved and the irreparable damage to friendships and relationships.
