David Tennant appears as a Detective Inspector and Arthur Darvill as a priest in eight-part series, ‘Broadchurch’, which looks at the lives of people living in a small town after the body of a young boy is found on a beach.
The series was written by Chris Chibnall who has also worked on Doctor Who and its spin-off Torchwood.
He said: “Broadchurch focuses on a small British community which finds itself at the eye of a storm. In the wake of one boy’s death, the residents of Broadchurch come under scrutiny and suspicion.
“It’s a story of scale and intimacy, as the lives of the characters are laid bare.”
The show will be filmed on location in Portishead near Bristol and Dorset later this year.
