Portsmouth has been drawn into the Broadchurch whodunnit.
(SPOILERS - do not read if you are not up to date with season two of Broadchurch)
In the latest episode, DI Alec Hardy, played by former Doctor Who star David Tennant, and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller, (Olivia Colman), discovered that the mobile phone of one of the presumed-dead victims in the Sandbrook case was in Portsmouth on the day she went missing.
It raises the intriguing possibility that one of the cousins thought to have been murdered in fact fled to France. And as Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller pointed out, that is where prime suspect Lee Ashworth was at the time.
Time will tell as to whether the city plays a pivotal role in the hit ITV drama.
