Broadchurch…there’s more! Filmed in West Bay and West Dorset

BROADCHURCH……the ITV series is back in action!

Mondays nights started 27th Feb, if you missed the start watch it on catch up.   Trailor 
Broadchurch..Top ITV Drama…it’s a new dramatic and compelling storyline, very real and traumatic, and filmed with Dorset and the Jurassic coast as it backdrop. Great acting and portrayal of the local characters, a better take-off of our local accents!
Our friends David Tenant and Olivia Chapman have the star roles again …Miller & Hardy are so good the way they gel.  Together with a great line-up of talented actors and they all loved filming here, Heard nice feedback from the hoteliers and the campsites about how they enjoyed hosting the film crew and how helpful they were.
Here’s some interesting info ….The BROADCHURCH name was derived from a combination of the West Dorset villages of Broadoak and Whitchurch Canonicorum, isn’t that a lovely name!
