Eve Myles and more join Broadchurch season 2

Broadchurch's second series welcomes a host of familiar faces, including Torchwood's Eve Myles...

Considering that the first series boasted a Doctor Who writer (Chris Chibnall), director (Euros Lyn), Companion (Arthur Darvill), and Doctor (need we even?), not forgetting the latest actor to play William Hartnell (David Bradley), the mum out of The Eleventh Hour (Olivia Colman), and more, it's no surprise that Broadchurch series two is welcoming another Whoniverse player: Torchwood and The Unquiet Dead's Eve Myles, who is to play "a central role" in the new run.

Joining Myles in Broadchurch's second series will be Without A Trace's Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Master And Commander's James D'Arcy, and new-ishcomer Phoebe Waller-Bridge. This latest batch of names all join the recently announced Charlotte Rampling and returning cast members David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Arthur Darvill, Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan.

All of which leaves us with one question Mr Chibnall: whither John Barrowman? Surely it wouldn't be too much effort to wedge in a scene or two about a handsome, time-travelling star of the musical stage who mans Broadchurch's Mr Whippy van? Go on, just for us.

I'm pretty sure Mr Barrowman is in the US polishing his arrows.

Oh yeah! And squeeze in John Simm as well! Make him a street percussionist or something!

Yes I was about to say the same thing. John is back on Arrow as Thomas Merlin the bad guy from season one of that show. Guess you could call it a reprise?
