David Tenant and Olivia Colman join forces this week and become police partners in Broadchurch, a new ITV mystery drama about the tragic death occuring in a seaside village. David Tenant plays DI Alex Hardy who is just arriving in town just as the body is found. DI Hardy leads the investigation with the help of DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Coleman) who is a local girl in the area. Speaking on about his new role recently in an interview with TV Times David Said 'It's a really emotive drama, It's the worst possible thing, isn't it the death of a child? So every scene is overshadowed by that and the repercussions. It's not a murder mystery in the sense that we're all whittlting down the suspects, it's also about how the death of a child toaches everyone in that small community.
