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

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: 3-DVD Set, Behind the scenes, Filmographies, Interactive Menu, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: 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 effi cient 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. ...Broadchurch - 3-DVD Set ( Broad church )

4.0 out of 5 stars the Boy on the Beach 24 April 2013
By tallpete33 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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 a 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding drama - unmissable 15 April 2013
By E.Meredith TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars UK Detective a la Nordic Noire 27 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Broadchurch is a good example of how the Nordic Noire has influenced international television. Moody, with great scenery, Broadchurch explores small town England and how a tragedy changes relationships for ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 17 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We had missed this when it was shown on TV but friends encouraged us to try & see it so when it became available on DVD we ordered it - what a good decision.
It was brilliant - and no advertising!
The `extra's' were well worth seeing too so we got a really good understanding of how the production came about & how the actors and crew were taken through the process - what an innovative way of creating a series - which produced a spectacular TV experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping drama series 3 Sep 2014
By Keith
Format:DVD
I thought I'd share my thought on British TV series BROADCHURCH. This television crime drama was broadcast on ITV from March 2013 and has since been broadcast in the US since that Autumn and received allot critical acclaim and a lot of publicity during this drama series of "whodunit" which involved the murder of an eleven year old boy and the search for the killer led by Detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller, played by David Tennant and Olivia Coleman receptively.

I got a lend of it on DVD from much acclaim from my girlfriends Mum :)I was hooked after the first episode and flew through this 8 episode series in under a week. The mystery surrounding this poor boys death really shook up this small town community as such a crime was isolated in such an idyllic community where - everyone knew everybody- feel to it.

It was a great series full of twists and the residents having secrets exposed during the investigation led by Hardy as the outsider looking in and Ellie who was conflicted as a member of the community who had a harder time being suspicious of her friends and people she has know for such a long time. It was series where anyone watching it would have suggested their own theories about the murder.I highly recommend this series, so if you spot repeats of it on TV or treat yourself to it on DVD. I guarantee you will be hooked on this series. A second series is currently in production and a US remake has been commissioned with David Tennant reprising the lead role in the series re-titled GRACEPOINT which is set to air sometime during 2014-2015 season.
