The Mail Online have released an exclusive article about Broadchurch series 2’s ‘dark secrets’. The article includes statements from Chris Chibnall about the new series, a few bits of character information and predictions as to what route the storyline of series 2 could take!
Fans know Miller and Hardy will return and that Danny’s death still casts a shadow over the Dorset town. But ITV refuses to reveal more and trailers declaring, ‘Same town, new secrets’ only add to the mystery.
Chibnall said: ‘Brace yourself for upset and shock. My 11-year-old son has been begging me but I won’t let him watch series two. It’s too upsetting. It features the cheekiest cliffhanger yet – a real shocker.
‘I want people on the edge of their seats, gripped, and they will be. If you love these characters you will really, really want to watch every second.’ Here The Mail on Sunday presents an exclusive glimpse into the characters, locations and plots set to get us hooked a second time.

The David Tennant News blog just posted this interview with Eve about Broadchurch series two! We are not sure where this interview is from, but information will be added as soon as we are informed! Here it is:
Did you watch Broadchurch when it originally went out?
Yes, I loved it. It is a bold, fantastic piece of drama which kept everybody guessing every week and what I loved most was that it was an event which is very rare these days. Usually you wait and get the box set or get it on Netflix and watch it over a weekend but with this if you weren’t watching every week you were missing out and I was part of that.
How did you get the role?
My baby, Sienna, was about four days old when I got the call. My agent asked if I could do an audition on tape as I couldn’t get to London immediately. The taping was hilarious because I was doing the lines in between the baby’s cries and gurgles, so I had to do it as fast as I could and know the lines inside out.
What was it like joining the cast of series one?
Like an out of body experience sitting there in the read through, I remember physically shaking I was so nervous. Even hearing my voice in that space was terrifying because I was such a fan of the show. But then it was also the most exhilarating experience to be part of it.
Every single cast member came up to me that day, put their arms around me and welcomed me into the cast. That took the pressure off and made me feel I was with actors rather than big stars I really admired which meant the world to me and put me at ease straight away.
What did you think of West Bay?
I’d never been there before – how glorious is that place and why haven’t I been there before? It’s two hours from my house door to door, I’ll be going there a lot more. I was spotting out places to take the children next summer. It’s beautiful and the people were wonderful, so accommodating and so excited we were filming another series of Broadchurch down there.
Are you finding it hard to keep everything a secret?
I found it very hard not to tell people I’d got the part in the first instance because I was so excited, so I thought I would find the secrets hard to keep.But it’s not hard at all because it is so important to keep it all under wraps.
How did you react when first read script?
When I got the first script I kept it for bedtime; lights off, ipad out, cup of tea in bed. It was amazing, like watching a film, the writing is so good. I was shocked, exhilarated and surprised. And it made me laugh.

Acorn Media have already made the Broadchurch Series 2 DVD available to pre-order! It is rare for a company to do this before a show has started airing, however it is predicted that demand for it will be high. The release date for the DVD will be on Monday 23rd March 2015 – four weeks after the last episode of series 2 has been broadcasted. So far you can only pre-order the DVD from Acorn Media, however companies such as Amazon will also be taking orders closer to the release date. Here is what the art work for the cover looks like so far, however this may change:
The DVD consists of 3 disks, and is also available to pre-order in Blu-ray. So far no DVD extras are listed, but again, this is due to change. Both DVDs are currently reduced from £24.99 to £17.99 – you can order them here!
