NPR interviews David Tennant about Broadchurch

On the eight-episode, one crime structure of Broadchurch
"It allows you to invest in character. It is the story of who killed Danny, and the uncovering of that mystery, but it’s also the story of all the people around that, and it’s the story of this community, and it’s as much about the emotional impact of that as it is on solving the crime. The story can tease you in certain different directions — and of course it means that the ultimate impact of that final episode is so much more powerful than if the whole thing was wrapped up in 45 minutes."
"I think that’s the way television is sort of headed — I mean, the rise of the box set is something that’s changed the way we expect television to be, I think, in that audiences now have an appetite for longer forms … I’m sure that’s to do with the fact that you watch television, we can consume television in so many different ways. If we miss an episode because we weren’t in on a Wednesday night at 10 o’clock, it’s not the end of the world."

Broadchurch airs Wednesdays at 10pm on BBC America.

13 Common Denominators Between Broadchurch and Doctor Who

It’s remarkable that there are quite so many points of commonality between the reality depicted within Broadchurch, and the Whoniverse, even taking into account the size of the British acting industry, and the high turnover of talent within Doctor Who and associated shows.

So, without giving any plots away, here’s a list of people that should already be familiar to Doctor Who fans, when Broadchurch airs on BBC AMERICA in just over a week.

Let’s start with the most obvious point of commonality of the lot, shall we?

1: David Tennant (The Doctor, Doctor Who; DI Alec Hardy, Broadchurch)
You already guessed this one, right? Actor fella. Looks good in a suit. And we can throw the other famous Whovian in there as well, before we really get down to business.

2: Arthur Darvill (Rory Pond, Doctor Who; Rev. Paul Coates, Broadchurch)

So, who else has appeared in both shows? Click here for the full list.

Broadchurch gets its US premiere August 7 at 10/9c on BBC America.

BROADCHURCH is coming August 7 to BBC America

“The drama of the year” - Mirror

“Britain’s biggest new drama since Downton Abbey” - The Guardian
“Full of bravura acting… Impeccable” - London Metro

BBC America’s BROADCHURCH, which earned critical acclaim and broke records on Twitter in the UK, centers on the investigation into the murder of a young boy in a British seaside town.

Leading the investigation are two detectives — the strong yet compassionate local Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (OLIVIA COLMAN, Twenty Twelve, The Iron Lady), and the by-the-book Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (DAVID TENNANT, Doctor Who, Spies of Warsaw), Ellie’s newly appointed boss. 

By circumstance they are partnered to solve the murder, keeping the newspapers from derailing the investigation and trying to prevent the crime from impacting tourism at the beach where the boy was murdered.
