The writer of Broadchurch,Bridport based Chris Chibnall, has denied claims that a former Doctor Who star will appear in the cast.

Fans of the hit ITV drama began speculating after an interview in a national newspaper.

Mr Chibnall expressed his interest in Matt Smith in the Daily Mirror, and this sparked the rumours.

He took to twitter to deny the claims: "That Mirror headline about me wanting to cast Matt Smith in Broadchurch? Not true." He added: "I love Matt and his work - that's all I said. Never mentioned using him in Broadchurch. And he's off doing movies anyway."

Smith is set to leave his role as Doctor Who to pursue a career in Hollywood. His film debut, the Ryan Gosling directed 'How to catch a monster' will be coming next year.
