The cast of the second series of ITV hit drama Broadchurch met for the first time today as they attended a script read-through in London.

Pictured for the first time are returning cast David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill and some of the actors who are joining the drama for series two, including Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Eve Myles and James D’Arcy.

Details of the new characters and storylines for the second series won’t be revealed during filming. 

The new series will start filming later this month in Dorset and north Somerset and creator and writer Chris Chibnall has appealed to the media and members of the public who might observe filming to help keep the secrets of Broadchurch.
