'Broadchurch' producers have asked Dorset residents to avoid tweeting about the show's super secretive second series

Dorset residents have been sworn to secrecy about the new series of 'Broadchurch'.

Locals in the South West of England have been asked to keep quiet about the highly-secretive plot of the ITV crime drama's second series by producers, who are grateful for their discretion on social media.

Screenwriter Chris Chibnall told the Daily Star newspaper: "We're finally able to talk a little about preparations for the next series of Broadchurch and confirm we're coming back to film around West Bay and Clevedon.

"We're all thrilled about returning, especially given how supportive the whole community was last time. And if the community are able to keep our secrets as well as they did then, we'll be ever so grateful."

It was confirmed yesterday (21.05.14) that Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D'Arcy, Eve Myles and Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be joining the cast alongside main stars Olivia Colman and David Tennant.

Chris enthused: "We're over the moon to have wooed Marianne back from Los Angeles to join us in 'Broadchurch'. She is one of Britain's finest actresses, so it's an honour and a coup for us. It's a role written specifically for her and I would've wept for months if she'd turned us down.

"Luckily she didn't and her character is going to make an indelible impact on the world of 'Broadchurch'."
