David Tennant meets locals during break in filming

THE star of a TV drama being shot in North Somerset was only too happy to have his picture taken with two lucky girls during a break in filming.

David Tennant plays one of the main characters in Broadchurch, an eight-part drama which will be screened on ITV next year and is being filmed by Kudos Film and Television using areas in Clevedon and Portishead as prominent locations.

Pictured with David Tennant are Claire and Ellie Taylor, along with Skye Fowler, who spotted the crew filming in Avon Way, Portishead.

Broadchurch will explore what happens when a small community comes under the spotlight of the national media following a boy’s death.

In Hill Road, Clevedon, the former Seeley’s newsagent building (pictured) has been converted into a set for the fictional local newspaper, The Broadchurch Echo.
