Image

NEW INTERVIEW: David Tennant Talks Broadchurch The Final Episode And The Future For Hardy

Image
The critically acclaimed award-winning drama Broadchurch concluded its third and final series on BBC America last night.

The series saw David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller, who were reunited in the hunt for the perpetrator of a serious sexual assault.

The final episode saw Hardy and Ellie uncover the truth behind the rape and lives in Broadchurch are changed forever...

David spoke to Yahoo! about the end of an era... “I think the journey that Miller and Hardy go on is so beautifully summed up in that final scene,” David says. “They’re both broken people, really. They’re people who don’t have anyone other than each other. They’re sort of the closest thing to best friends that the other one has. They’re both kind of disconnected from their families, and they’ve been through some terrible, bruising experiences. They feel like slightly incomplete human beings. They found each other in this world, and yet even then they can’t quite connect.”

PHOTOS: David Tennant Returns As Kilgrave For Jessica Jones Season 2

Image
Big news broke in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this week when it was revealed that David Tennant would be returning to the role of Kilgrave for Season 2 of Marvel's Jessica Jones. The new season has been filming in New York for several months already, but David was recently spotted on set with co-stars Krysten Ritter and Eka Darville.

Season One of the show saw former superhero Jessica Jones trying to lead a low key life as a private detective in New York's Hell's Kitchen following a traumatic experience at the hands of Kilgrave, a man with the power of mind control. Those who have already watched the show will have seen how Jessica dealt with her tormentor, so the new scenes have raised many questions for fans of the series. Marvel, however, are keeping tight lipped about David's involvement, so it looks like we'll all have to wait until Season 2 hits Netflix in early 2018 to find out!

In the meantime, enjoy some new on set photos here, courtesy of HQ Celeb…
