Broadchurch Exclusive For Wessex FM

Chris Chibnall Broadchurch

(Updated 1:13pm 28th December 2013)

Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall has revealed to Wessex FM that  he's currently writing Broadchurch 2, and it will be filmed in 2014.

Bridport based Chris, who set the original 8-part drama largely in West Bay, revealed the update when speaking to us about Broadchurch being named best television programme of 2013 in the annual poll of Radio Times critics.

The murder mystery drew around nine million viewers each week during its eight-episode run earlier this year.

A second series is also expected this year on ITV.

French thriller The Returned, which aired on Channel 4, took second place in the poll, ahead of C4's own fly-on-the-wall documentary Educating Yorkshire.

Chris has also told us he wrote the first episode of the US version, called Gracepoint, which features David Tennant, for which filming begins next month.
