A British crime drama on the BBC America cable channel, Broadchurch stars Olivia Colman and David Tennant. The cast also includes Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill, Carolyn Pickles, Adam Wilson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Georgina Campbell, Charlotte Beaumont, Emily Allison, Roy Hudd, Benji Yapp, Matthew Gravelle, Mariah Gale, and William Andrews. The series takes place in the small seaside town of Broadchurch and centers on Detective Inspector Alex Hardy (Tennant) and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller. In season three, Hardy and Miller investigate a serious sexual assault which rocks this tight-knit Dorset community.
