Broadchurch is back: We meet the stars

After more than a year of waiting, the brand new series of Broadchurch finally airs tonight.

And the final instalment promises to be just as thrilling as the first two.

It's set three years on from the end of series two, and five from the start of series one.

But, fear not, despite the time lapse, familiar faces DI Alec Hardy - David Tennant - and DS Ellie Miller - Olivia Colman - are still around, and this time investigating a serious sexual assault.

Our very own Kylie Pentelow managed to catch-up with David and Olivia in between takes.

And we also caught up with new girl on the block Sarah Parish - who plays Cath Atwood - who had quite a surprising revelation...

And, although the story line has moved away from what we're used to, the stars were quick to let us know that it'll still be the same drama we're used to.

It's a different sort of story, there are a lot of new characters in it, so we are investigating a crime, more than we have done previously I think.

We're meeting new people, finding out about them, and investigating their lives, where as before the story has been more part of our own psychology. That gives it a different flavour but it is still the same tone.

– David Tennant

But even while they're recording, the cast themselves are kept in the dark about the plot.

Lets hope they manage to work it out by the end of the series....
