De­tec­tives Miller and Hardy are on the case for the fi­nal sea­son of Broad­church.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ACTION -

No mat­ter how small or in­signif­i­cant it may seem, ev­ery­thing is con­nected one way or an­other. And that’s ex­actly what is be­ing dis­cov­ered in the third and fi­nal sea­son of Bri­tish crime series Broad­church (2013-2017). De­tec­tives Alec Hardy and El­lie Miller (David Ten­nant and Olivia Col­man) will be haul­ing out their mag­ni­fy­ing glasses as they in­ves­ti­gate the sex­ual as­sault of Trish Win­ter­man (Julie Hes­mond­halgh, Hayley Crop­per from 1998 to 2014 on long-run­ning Bri­tish soapie Coronation Street 1960- cur­rent).


Sea­son 2 (2015) dug into Hardy’s back- ground and ex­plored the demons that are still haunt­ing him. But ac­cord­ing to Arthur Darvill, who plays Rev­erend Paul Coates in the fic­tional vil­lage of Broad­church, “This third sea­son will go back to the show’s roots. It is go­ing to be raw and heavy, like in the first sea­son, where the ac­tion and drama were all about track­ing down the sus­pect.” And it’s an ex­tremely dan­ger­ous sus­pect – Trish re­ports her rape in episode 1 (18 April) and Hardy and Miller re­alise that they are hunt­ing a se­rial rapist. “We kept this sea­son un­der wraps,” says series star David. “Peo­ple leave scripts ly­ing around and we don’t want any leaks. We wa­ter­mark ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­thing is pass­word pro­tected.” If you want to know if the cops catch their man, you’ll have to in­ves­ti­gate with them one last time.

It’s back to ba­sics for De­tec­tives Miller (left) and Hardy.
