Telly Tuesday: Broadchurch

First aired: 4th March 2013
Number of episodes: 8
Number of series: 1
Status: Current (hiatus)

Written by Chris Chibnall, starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman, David Bradley and Arthur Darvill... Can it get any better?

Broadchurch is a British detective series/crime drama. The story starts off with the body of a young boy being found on a beach. DI Alec Hardy (Tennant) and DS Ellie Miller (Colman) are hired to solve the case. The town of Broadchurch is small and quiet, and nobody knows who could've killed Danny or why.

Watching this series was extremely exciting. Everybody formed their own theories, nobody knew who could've done it and the ending was a HUGE surprise. The killer's identity was such a huge secret that only four cast members knew who it was while filming. So if you're thinking of watching Broadchurch, DO NOT GOOGLE IT. It will spoil it for you.

Series 2 will be filmed soon and both Tennant and Colman will be returning. In addition, Eve Myles has been announced as a new cast member, which made me so happy!

What Broadchurch brings to the crime genre is beautiful visuals, amazing actors and a particularly well-written multidimensional story. Trust me, just watch Broadchurch.

  1. Broadchurch was one of the best things on television last year and one of the most talked about. Look forward to Broadchurch 2 next year. I think it will be very difficult to produce another series up to this standard but we will see next year
