Broadchurch Series 3 starts soon!
roadchurch is an ITV thriller/drama series set in the fictional town of the same name. Shooting for the series was actually in 2 locations – West Bay in West Dorset and Clevedon near Bristol. An icon from the series are the stunning cliffs known locally as East Cliff.
Broadchurch is written by Chris Chibnall who lives in the area and Chris has been quoted as assaying that “Broadchurch was a love letter to the scenery of the Jurassic Coast”
“Broadies” (pet name for “Broadchurch fans) can visit a number of sites in and around West Bay where events from the series have taken place. “Murder Hut”, featured in Series 1 and 2, is located right on the cliff next to the footpath at Eype whilst the Pier at West Bay was used in several scenes. Stonebarrow near Charmouth was used in series 2 whilst the Sea Brigade Hall features in series 1.
Expectations are running high for series 3. Hoping for release in late February the cast includes a host of regulars including Olivia Coleman (DS Ellie Miller) and David Tennant (DI Alec Hardy) with some new faces – comedian Lenny Henry, Corrie favourite Julie Hesmondhalgh, Roy Hudd, and Sarah Parish to name a few.
A leaflet about the series and where to visit in relation to scenes from all 3 series is available in each cottage.
Alternatively ask Alistair & Lisa for their pet haunts.
