Behind the scenes of Broadchuch Series 3

5th March 2017

You may know, if you're a regular listener to Wessex FM, that our own DJ Owen is an extra in a number of films and television shows.

Most recently, he's been involved in Series 3 of Broadchurch, filmed in and around Bridport, of course.

You may have seen him behind Lenny Henry at Washingpool Farm Shop (renamed Flintcombe Farm Shop) in the first episode!

The show's plot is famously shrouded in secrecy, but Owen told me on the Breakfast Show what it's like being an extra, and how lots of people spotted him in that first episode, lurking behind Lenny!
