New Series Of Broadchurch Will Be A Stand Alone Story

Image
The third and final series of Broadchurch will be a stand alone story says actress Charlotte Beaumont, who plays Chloe Latimer in the drama.
Speaking to The Hollywood News Charlotte revealed "The aim is to make it the best one yet and a real standalone piece. You don’t necessarily have to have seen the first two. Obviously my family is in it and you see what happened to them, but it’s set a little later on."

Series 3 will see David Tennant and Olivia Colman returning to the roles of Detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller for one last time This time they'll be investigating a serious sexual assault in a storyline that has seen series creator Chris Chibnall working closely with specialist police advisors and local support organisations who deal with the victims of sexual violence.

RUMOUR: David Tennant Tipped To Host Special Celebrity Edition Of The Crystal Maze

Image
Update: It's been confirmed that David won't be taking part.

A couple of UK tabloids are reporting that David Tennant is in the frame to host a special one-off revival of the iconic 90's game show, The Crystal Maze. The puzzle-solving team challenge ran from 1990 to 1995 on Channel 4, and was originally hosted by Rocky Horror creator Richard O'Brien, and subsequently by former Tenpole Tudor frontman Ed Tudor-Pole. 

Twenty-one years after it last aired, The Crystal Maze is being revived as a big budget celebrity edition in October as part of Channel 4's annual fundraiser Stand Up To Cancer. However, the channel have not ruled out the possibility of the show going to a full series if the special episode is a success.

During the first half of the 1990s The Crystal Maze was one of Channel 4's biggest shows. Earlier this year, an immersive Crystal Maze experience launched in London following a successful crowdfunding appeal.

VIDEO: Bad Samaritan Director On Working With David Tennant: "A Dream Come True"

Yesterday we posted that David Tennant was joining the cast of Bad Samaritan, a new thriller to be directed by Dean Devlin, the producer of such blockbuster movies as Independence Day and Godzilla. Dean, who is a big fan of Doctor Who and also of David's work in Broadchurch and Marvel's Jessica Jones, took time out from his vacation to record a video message to share his elation about the casting news.

In the message, posted via his Facebook page (in two halves due to connection issues), Dean said, "I just can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to get to work with David Tennant. He's one of my favourite actors on the planet."
