Product Description

A hot morning in July and the Dorset town of Broadchurch, is bracing itself for the tourist season, when Danny Latimer, an 11 year old schoolboy, goes missing. His mother, Beth, frantically starts to search for him while her best friend, Ellie Miller, a local police officer, arrives at work to discover that the promotion she thought was hers has gone to D.I Alec Hardy an outsider with a reputation for failure. When Danny s body is found beneath the picturesque cliffs that dominate the town opposites collide. Both Miller and Hardy are determined to solve the mystery of Danny's murder, Ellie perhaps too sensitive to the people in her community; Alec as efficient as he is blunt. When news of the crime spreads through the town, a chain reaction begins which will put Broadchurch under a national spotlight, pulling the town, its residents and its secrets, apart.

From Amazon.co.uk

When ITV first started screening Broadchurch, ostenisbly a murder mystery from the mind of Chris Chibnall, it didn't really get an awful lot of attention. Sure, the strong cast, led by David Tennant and Olivia Colman, meant it got noticed. But detective whodunnits are hardly rare. However, as the weeks went by on original transmission, Broadchurch escalated, and by the end, large parts of the nation were gripped by one of the best mysteries to have screened in many, many years. No wonder a second series was swiftly announced.

This first one introduces us to the apparently quiet town of Broadchurch in south England. There, an 11-year schoolboy has gone missing, as two detectives, who hardly get on, are forced to join together to get to the bottom of what's happened. But all is not what it seems in Broadchurch, and to say any more would spoil the undoubted fun in watching it all unfold.

For this is premier quality drama. Tennant and Colman are excellent, but the ensemble cast bring a collection of excellent, believable performances too. It's the writing that lifts things, though, and you can't help but be gripped as the story unravels.

As well as the excellent show itself, the disc release also features a look behind the scenes of Broadchurch, along with background material. But it's that main drama that's the undoubted attraction, and one that's aching to be rewatched once seen, if only to pick up all the clues you might just have missed... --Jon Foster

Superbly crafted mystery. Beautifully filmed, exploiting splendid Dorset coastal setting. Consummate acting.
Compelling plot. Complex and absorbing to the end.

I see frequent laments in British papers (tabloids to mainstream) that all the good series are now from America. Broadchurch is proof they are not - and don't need to be. While the folks in the UK may have discovered Breaking Break via Amazon and Netflix, Americans like myself have a rich category of films like Broadchurch, Sherlock, Miss Marple, Prime Suspect, and Inspector Morse that never cease to satisfy. I found Broadchurch just as riveting and grabbing as Breaking Bad and watched all the episodes in 24 hours. I hope the next generation of British, Irish, Welch, and Scottish writers be so good all those amazing UK actors on American series will begin to say "no sorry...I'm working over here on a much better thing and still making Hugh Laurie kind of money".

Format: DVD
This one caught the imagination with me and a lot of people I know and it was refreshing to hear people discussing a British drama series rather than the latest American boxset. Dorset's Jurassic coast provided the stunning backdrop for a classic whodunnit that kept you guessing almost to the end. David Tennant and Colman are superb and versatile actors who teamed up perfectly as the two detectives on the hunt for the murderer of local boy Danny Latimer whose body was found mysteriously placed on the beach one morning.

For Ellie Miller (Colman) things are made more difficult as she knows the Latimer family well and her son was Danny's best friend whilst the taciturn Alec Hardy (Tennant) new in town has to face his own demons having been accused of botching a similar case elsewhere, a fact that is known by a dogged national journalist. His transfer to Broadchurch is meant to be a respite for him as he also faces health problems but his timing could not have been worse with the town in turmoil.

This is a very watchable series set in the town where the sun never seems to stop shining but is shaken to the core as secrets about its tight knit community are slowly revealed. Lies are told and accusations made at anyone and everyone from the local vicar to the sea cadet master and the reclusive lady (Pauline Quirke) and her dog living in a caravan by the sea. If I had one criticism it would be its pace with seemingly little happening in the early episodes but it's a slow burner that reaps rewards as tall tales are unravelled and the killer finally flushed out (it wasn't Vince the dog). It's not heavy on action, just people and nobody does sad like Colman or grumpy like Tennant in this classy coastal mystery.

Format: DVD
ITV drama is truly excelling itself with this production. Firstly, the cast is top class, with superlative acting. Notably, Jodie Whittaker as the bereaved mother Beth is completely believable and gives a haunting performance of what it is like to be told your son has been found dead. During the first episode, I had had tears streaming down my face throughout much of it, which is very unusual for me. In a later episode, she talks to another mother who has been through a similar experience and their conversation is deeply moving, jerkingly honest and as a demonstration of the high quality of the writing, delves into despair, depression, feeling utterly alone and lost in a way so rarely seen on TV.

The plot keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I am not actually particularly keen on who dunnits but this is so, so much more. It covers a broad spectrum of important subjects: marital infidelity is explored in a very real and refreshing way; the effect of loss and tragedy on a marriage and on siblings; how we react to the word "sex offender" as a blanket concept rather than thinking about the huge range of offences it covers. How quickly a fearful community can become a lynch mob with scant evidence. Most accurately, it demonstrates the role of the Press in our society: how exaggeration and emotive words used only to sell papers can distort the facts with tragic effect; how young reporters are exploited and how their ambition to excel is abused by unscrupulous editors; and how easily we do believe what we read.

Andrew Buchan, (Cranford, The Fixer, & the brilliant Party Animals and Garrow's Law), one of the very finest actors of our age in my opinion, is sublime as always.

Format: DVD
'Broadchurch' is a wonderfully absorbing, and unmissable British crime drama, a mini-series that provides a realistic focus on human nature, the tragedy and police investigation surrounding the death of a small child, that never once goes down the over dramatisation route. Unlike so many crime dramas, the families of the victim aren't just restricted to the background, they play a major part throughout, and to see this was very refreshing.

Newly promoted D.I. Alec Hardy (David Tennant) is an outsider, who has recently moved to the area. When the body of missing 11 year old Danny is found, beneath the cliffs of Broadchurch, a small town in Dorset, his mother's best friend Ellie (Olivia Colman), also a police officer, works together with Hardy, and the pair set out to solve this murder mystery. The two members of the law couldn't be more different. Ellie is overly sensitive to the people in her community, but no-mates Scotsman Alec is both very efficient and blunt in equal measure. The two characters clash, but Alec ensures that they will get their results. Tennnt and Colman work exceptionally well off each other, and turn out some magicial performances. Other famous faces in the versatile cast include such talent as David Bradley, Andrew Buchan, Jonathan Bailey, Will Mellor, and Pauline Quirke.

The writing of 'Broadchurch' is superb, the production values are high, and the well-crafted, complex story provides many twists-and-turns throughout, making it virtually impossible for you to predict how it's all going to pan out. As each episode goes by, we learn something new about these complex characters, regarding their colourful secret pasts. The beautiful Dorset coastal setting helps to provide the perfect background, especially when it's as well-filmed as this programme is.
