The critically acclaimed award-winning drama Broadchurch returns for a third and final series. It premieres Monday 27 February 2017 at 9.00pm on ITV.
Olivia Colman and David Tennant reprise their roles as DS Ellie Miller and DI Alec Hardy, this time investigating a serious sexual assault in the Dorset community. Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan return to play Beth and Mark Latimer, along with Arthur Darvill as local vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and Adam Wilson as Ellie’s son Tom.
They are joined by National Television Award winner Julie Hesmondhalgh, BAFTA winners Lenny Henry and Georgina Campbell along with Sarah Parish, Charlie Higson and Mark Bazeley.
The first series saw the murder of 11-year-old Danny Latimer rock the small Dorset town of Broadchurch, as DI Alec Hardy – still haunted by the collapse of a previous murder case he worked on – was put in charge of the case, much to the chagrin of local officer DS Ellie Miller. In series two, the town faced the trauma of a trial when after pleading not guilty, the murderer found another lawyer to fight his case, a lawyer so strong, that the Latimers were terrified they may not win. ‘
Both previous series gripped the nation and, as before, story details of this series are being kept tightly under wraps. Since it is two years since the second series aired, it will be one of the most highly anticipated returning dramas in years.
Broadchurch Series 3 Episode 1 airs on Monday 27 February 2017 from 9.00pm-10pm on ITV.
