'Broadchurch' star Arthur Darvill has revealed the cast have been banned from watching the second series of the crime drama ahead of its broadcast in order to keep the plot a secret

The 'Broadchurch' cast have been banned from watching episodes of the show before they are broadcast.

According to star Arthur Darvill - who plays Reverend Paul Coates in the ITV crime drama - the secrecy surrounding the upcoming second series of the show has been so important to bosses that they have refused to allow the cast to watch entire episodes before they hit screens.

Arthur told 'Good Morning Britain': "I haven't seen it. None of us have seen it. We're not allowed to see any of it.

"I've seen little bits of it for doing ADR, but not a whole episode. From the little tiny nuggets I've seen it looks amazing.

"There's so many of us in it that we all concentrate on our own little bits, so I can't wait to see everyone else in it."

The 32-year-old actor is glad the cast have had to sign non-disclosure agreements as he is prone to giving away plot secrets.

The former 'Doctor Who' star said: "I'm really good at giving away the secrets. But I'm so used to it. I always get jobs where I'm not allowed to talk about it and end up being good at talking about nothing for quite a long time."

The new series - which starts on ITV tonight at 9pm - also stars returning cast members David Tennant, Jodie Whittaker and Olivia Colman, and will focus on residents of the tight-knit community in Dorset as they try to come to terms with their grief following the murder of 11-year-old boy Danny in series one.

Jodie - who plays Beth Latimer - said: "Series two explores grief."
