Broadchurch: “He’s right to be worried”… Don’t even!

After David Tennant expressed his worried on his character’s return for the second season of Broadchurch, given DI Alec Hardy’s lack of health, the series writer and creator Chris Chibnall just told Radiotimes that Tennant is right to be worried!


He’s right to be worried. He’s a king on the stage, he’s off doing an American show right now, I believe. He’s got a lot on his plate.


Chibnall is referring to Tennant’s work on Richard II and Gracepoint (American adaptation of Broadchurch), that just began shooting in Canada this week. He also mentioned that the only problem is not David’s busy schedule, but also the really poor health that Hardy had when we last saw him:

David’s very busy and Alec Hardy, at the end of series one, he was fired from the police, he had a heart problem – I don’t see how you come back. How would that happen?

The show is amazing either way, I’m not saying that losing David Tennant will kill it or anything, but one of the things I loved the most about the show was how different the two detectives were and how they made each other better. Hardy was really there for Miller in the end (he even called Ellie!!!) and it would be a shame not to maintain their professional interaction… I just hope he comes back for season 2, David and Olivia are great together.

Good news for Bones, Bad news for Sean

Fox announced yesterday that Bones was renewed for its 10th season. Although not exactly a surprise, given that it still does relatively well, I do hope they do not prolong it past that, I think they should end it while they’re still on top. Other bit of good news its the return of the drama to its previous time slot on Mondays – why they ever thought to put it on a Friday is beyond me.


On a more sour note, NBC has put a halt in the production of Sean Saves the World, which means that the show is basically canceled. It’s a shame really, the show is quite good and I find it far more entertaining that, for instance, The Michael J Fox Show. Really sad about this…
