David Tennant: project updates, radio appearance

  • Broachchurch update
This is the first week of filming on David Tennant's eight part gritty police drama Broadchurch for ITV.
So far there have been very few sightings of filming by fans but it is known that they were filming in the Fishponds area of Bristol on Tuesday and Wednesday and Will Mellor started filming his scenes on Wednesday (15th).
On Monday somebody posted onto Tumblr that David was filming at her friend's dad's workplace but no further details were given.
Yesterday somebody on set tweeted "Today I have been opening and closing a mortuary door and walking past David Tennant. As you do. #averageday"
Somebody else tweeted "Yesterday David Tennant literally frowned in my general direction - highlight of my year."
Last night producer Richard Stokes tweeted that it had been "a fast first week."
Next week there will be some filming in a school so hopefully more tweets will be posted.
