Joining the hit show are stars including James D'Arcy, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Charlotte Rampling, Eve Myles, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Meera Syal.

The plot of Broadchurch's second series revolves around a new secret in the coastal town. The trailer shows Olivia as Ellie asking "where were you both the night those two girls disappeared?", hinting that the show will be centered around a suspicious abduction of two local girls.









Speaking to The Independent earlier this year, 35-year-old Andrew said the show would be "vastly different" to other murder mystery dramas.

"It'll be nothing like Midsomer Murders," he said. "I don't mean that in a disrespectful way – far from – I'm a huge fan of Neil Dudgeon, if that helps. But by that, I just mean plot-wise, it'll be vastly different. I can't give anything away about the plot."
