When crime drama Broadchurch returned to ITV for a second series earlier this year, viewer ratings were not nearly as high as they had been during the show’s first series, which, during its finale, saw David Tennant’s troubled character DI Hardy arresting Joe Miller – the husband of Hardy’s colleague and close friend Ellie Miller – for the murder of young Danny Latimer…
The second series of ITV crime drama Broadchurch continues tomorrow night at 9pm, and if you’re a fan of the show, then you’ll know that in last week’s new series debut, Joe Miller pleaded not guilty to the murder of young Danny Latimer, which was the focus of series one.
That came as a shock to all concerned of course, given that Joe had previously confessed to DI Alec Hardy – who’s played by David Tennant – that he killed Danny, albeit that the murder wasn’t premeditated.
Playing the part of a paedophile has to be one of the toughest assignments that an actor can take on, and we would imagine that before taking on such a role, an actor would have to consider whether he or she could become typecast and worse yet, the subject of hatred from the public…
Because of course, there are (frighteningly) many TV viewers who are convinced that actors are in actuality the people they play on-screen, so to portray a paedophile could potentially be a very serious business with far-reaching repercussions.
You can take the Doctor out of the Tardis, but it would seem you can’t take The Time Lord out of the actor!
David Tennant is arguably one of the finest actors in this country, and not just because of his unforgettable stint playing the Tenth Doctor Who – He has gone on to many a great role since those days. Read more & comment »
