NEW INTERVIEW: David Tennant & Olivia Colman Talk The Last Ever Broadchurch - "Chris might kill us off"
The eagerly awaited new series of Broadchurch begins on ITV on Monday night, but it's the beginning of the end as this third series will be the final time we meet up with Hardy and Miller to solve a case in the seaside town.
Speaking whilst still on the set of the show last year David said "We were only ever going to do one and then when the idea came to do more, it was presented as 'Let's do another two and then walk away' so it's not really been a shock,"
"I think it seems right," Olivia adds "The whole point was that a terrible thing had happened in a beautiful place, a place where things like this don't happen. If you get to series 10, it's hard to believe that anymore.
"It's a lovely job, I'd happily do it every couple of years. But I think ending it is the right thing to do."
So what fate do they think awaits Alec and Ellie?
"It depends how annoyed Chris is with us – he might kill us off," laughs Olivia. "He's very certain that it's the last series, isn't he?" David agrees. "Which does make you wonder if there's some kind of terminal full-stop." "Yes," says Olivia, "to make sure they can't ask him to bring it back!"
Broadchurch returns to ITV on Monday 27th February at 9pm
