Broadchurch Camera Crews Arrive in West Bay!!!


1:55pm 4th June 2014
(Updated 2:30pm 4th June 2014)

Lights, camera, action, camera crews have arrived in Dorset to film the second series of the award winning drama Broadchurch.

Huge production vehicles arrived in West Bay under the cover of darkness late last night (Tuesday 3rd June 2014).

Wessex FM's Abby Newbery has been snooping around the set trying to sniff out the shows main stars, but hasn't had any luck yet.

Landlord of the West Bay pub nearvy, Sam, told us he was doing a bit of celebrity spotting himself:

"They all came through in their big trucks last night and everyone was watching, it was really good.

I haven't seen anyone famous yet but i'm keeping my eyes open. I'd like to see David Tennant and i'm not sure if Will Mellor's in it this time, but i'd like to see him he was good fun."

David Tennant and Olivia Coleman have both returned for the highly anticipated new series.

ITV bosses answered months of speculation last month when they finally confirmed Broadchurch would return to Dorset:

"David Tennant will return as Alec Hardy, whilst Olivia Colman resumes her role as Ellie Miller, last seen having her life torn apart as husband Joe confessed to murdering local schoolboy Danny Latimer."

"In keeping with the first series, secrecy and intrigue surrounds the story of the award winning drama written by creator and acclaimed screenwriter Chris Chibnall."
