Broadchurch series 2 begins Monday 5th January, 9pm on ITV

The critically acclaimed award-winning drama series Broadchurch returns for a brand new second series, once again starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman (who won a BAFTA for her role in the first series) and written by Chris Chibnall. The first series saw the murder of 11-year-old Danny Latimer rock the
small Dorset town of Broadchurch, as DI Alec Hardy (Tennant) – 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 (Colman). Their investigation saw many townspeople come under suspicion, including Danny’s father Mark (Andrew Buchan), but after many twists and turns, the revelation of the killer’s identity had far-reaching consequences, not least for the two detectives.

Story details are being kept tightly under wraps for the second series of the drama, meaning it is one of the most highly anticipated returning dramas in years. Along with Tennant, Colman and Buchan, Jodie Whittaker returns as Beth Latimer and Arthur Darvill as the Reverend Paul Coates, while the second series sees Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Eve Myles and James D’Arcy join the cast.

Broadchurch – The end is where it begins…

The wait is over. The second series of Broadchurch, ITV’s multi award-winning drama from Kudos and Imaginary Friends, will be back on screen in January 2015.

David Tennant returns as Alec Hardy and Olivia Colman resumes her role as Ellie Miller, last seen having her life torn apart as husband Joe confessed to murdering local schoolboy Danny Latimer in the seaside town.

Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan, who play Danny’s parents Beth and Mark Latimer, will also return to their roles, alongside Arthur Darvill as vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and a host of other ‘local’ faces.

Legendary Emmy nominated film and television actress Charlotte Rampling, Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock, Jupiter Ascending), Eve Myles (Torchwood, Merlin, Little Dorrit) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bad Education, Blandings, Glue) will also join the cast of Broadchurch for this series.
