Broadchurch is a 2013 8-part ITV Detective Drama, starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. In the eponymous town, 11-year old boy Danny Lattimer is found dead. Recently arrived DI Alec Hardy (Tennant) leads the investigation, with the assistance of DS Ellie Miller (Colman) - despite her resentment that Hardy got the promotion that she felt was rightfully hers while on holiday. As they dig into the goings on at the apparently quiet seaside town, a lot of skeletons start falling out of closets.Behind the scenes, the show seems to be a bit of an unofficial Doctor Who reunion - in addition to Tennant, the show also features Arthur Darvill (Rory) and several others (including Colman) who have guest starred on Doctor Who, and is written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Euros Lyn.A huge hit for ITV - it has been renewed for a second season. Fox has announced an American adaptation of the series, titled Gracepoint, that will air in 2014. David Tennant has been confirmed to reprise the role of the lead detective alongside Anna Gunn as his partner, with Michael Pena, Nick Nolte, and Jacki Weaver among the supporting cast.
