David Tennant and Olivia Colman are back tonight as DI Hardy and DS Miller in episode 4 of the third and final series of Broadchurch.
At the half way point of this new crime drama, Trish Winterman (Julie Hesmondhalgh) returns to the scene of the crime but will her visit help her remember anything more about the attack?
Meanwhile, DC Katie Harford (Georgina Campbell) discovers a strong lead – a new suspect who doesn’t have an alibi and Trish’s best friend Cath Attwood (Sarah Parish) reveals interesting new information about the night of her birthday party.
And there is finally some good news of a sort for Hardy and Miller as they get a match on the male DNA found on Trish and an unknown woman walks into the police station. Interviewed by the pair, she delivers some devastating new information.
Episode 4 premieres at 9 pm on ITV.

About Broadchurch 3
The 8-part series co-produced for ITV by Kudos, Imaginary Friends and Sister Pictures, explores the consequences of a serious sexual assault as a Dorset community comes under the scrutiny of Hardy and Miller’s investigation. Based on a year of research with Dorset-based organisations who specialise in dealing with victims of sexual assault, and police advisors who specialise in investigating crimes of sexual violence, Broadchurch’s final chapter looks at the emotional cost to all of those involved and the irreparable damage to friendships and relationships.
Joining David Tennant and Olivia Colman is Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan as Beth and Mark Latimer along with Arthur Darvill as local Vicar Paul Coates, Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and Adam Wilson as Ellie’s son Tom.
Broadchurch 3 also has a few new faces including award-winning Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh as Trish, the sexual assault victim. BAFTA winner Georgina Campbell, Charlie Higson and Mark Bazeley along with Sarah Parish, Lenny Henry and Roy Hudd.
