The release date for the new Broadchurch DVDs and Blu-rays has been brought forward to Monday 24th April 2017.
David Tennant and Olivia Colman return to the roles of Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller as the mismatched detectives reunite to solve a new mystery relating to a serious sexual assault. Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan are also among returning cast members, and they'll be joined by a host of new faces, including Sir Lenny Henry, who plays Ed Burnett, the owner of a local farm shop. Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Cucumber) plays Trish Winterman, his employee and the victim of the assault that Hardy and Miller must investigate. Sarah Parish (Blackpool, Recovery) also joins as Trish's best friend Cath Atwood, married to fellow newcomer Mark Bazeley (The Bourne Ultimatum) as garage owner Jim. Charlie Higson (The Fast Show) plays Trish's husband and Georgina Campbell (Murdered By My Boyfriend) plays new DC Katie Harford who will team up with Hardy and Miller to work on the case.
The series is expected to begin on ITV on 27th February.
