David Tennant On Returning To Broadchurch On BBC America For The Last Time

Image
Tonight sees the return of Broadchurch to American screens for one final chapter.
David Tennant, who plays DI Alec Hardy in the drama spoke to Parade.com ahead of the first episode airing..

Alec Hardy is a character that you’re fond of. What was it like to get the first script for Season 3 and know it was the beginning of the end?

I don’t think you think of it like that. Actors are so used to going from job to job, that, I think, when you’ve got a four or five-month shoot stretching out in front of you, you’re not thinking about the end. You’re just thinking about, “Oh, this is what I’m doing for the next little while.”

We’re quite fickle creatures, so you’re just thinking about the script in front of you and where the story’s going to go, and we had no idea what the plan was.

Olivia and my characters could just as easily be on the mortician’s slab by the end of the series as heading off into new adventures. We didn’t know what the final outcome was going to be. So you just kind of go…

USA PREMIERE: Broadchurch Series 3 Episode 1 Airs On BBC America Tonight

Image
Broadchurch returns in the USA tonight at 10/9c on BBC America.

It's three years since the events of series 2 and Ellie and Hardy are called out to attend to a woman who has reported a serious sexual assault.   They take the woman – Trish Winterman - to the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) where she is examined.   There’s no doubt she’s been raped – but where, and when, and by whom?

Hardy and Ellie tell Trish that an ISVA, (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor) will be in touch soon.  This person will help and guide her through the legal and investigative process that will now unfold around her.

Working on a clue found at Trish’s house, Hardy and Ellie discover the crime scene and call in SOCO to gather evidence. But it is an unusual and difficult crime scene - will they find anything useful?

The initial forensics report confirms Hardy and Ellie’s earlier suspicions – this was not an opportunistic attack, it was planned.   Hardy concludes that they have a serious sexual preda…

David Tennant: From Broadchurch To DuckTales

Image
David Tennant stars as Alec Hardy in the final ever season of Broadchurch which premieres on BBC America tomorrow night. Then, from August, he'll be taking on the role of swashbuckling tycoon Scrooge McDuck on Disney XD in Disney's All New DuckTales.

David spoke to USA Today about both series, and, of course, Doctor Who.

How does Danny Latimer's murder play into the new season?  The death of Danny is still a massive shadow across the lives of his family and those around him. Although we're following a different crime, principally, in this season, we're still following his parents Beth (Jodie Whittaker) and Mark (Andrew Buchan) and what happens to them. That story reaches something of a resolution as the season goes on. It's not that the family moves on, because how could you ever move on from the death of a child? But we see them reaching a sort of peace.
You starred in the U.S. remake of Broadchurch, Fox's Gracepoint, in 2014. Why do you think that version did…

David Tennant Talks The Ending Of Broadchurch & The Legacy Of MILLAH!

Image
The final season of Broadchurch begins on BBC America tomorrow, with David Tennant and Olivia Colman back in the roles of Detectives Hardy and Miller, reunited for one last case. Ahead of the premiere, David Tennant spoke to IndieWire about his time playing Britain's grumpiest cop and the influence that the series has had on UK drama. 
Read what he had to say below:
When we first got involved, it was a one-season deal...then the first one just took off in a way that no one really saw coming, and Chris rather shyly says, “I could probably make this a trilogy, I’ve sort of got the stories in my head.”  I don’t know in the US — and this is just, of course, self-centred egotism — but I do often see things coming on the TV in the UK and thinking, “That’s a show that wouldn’t exist before Broadchurch.” It feels like it’s had an influence and I think that’s just because Chris created something very new and at the same time recognizably truthful and honest and something that just caught the …
