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 Dannyâs 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.

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

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.

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".

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
A young boy is found murdered on a beach. There are many suspects, but no solid evidence.

For most detective shows, that would be fodder for one episode. But in "Broadchurch Season 1," it's only the beginning of a slow-moving, intricate case that ripples through the lives of everyone in a seaside town -- leading to the reveal of ugly secrets and even death. David Tennant and Olivia Colman give astoundingly subtle performances as reluctant police partners, both of whom are troubled by the ugly underside of Broadchurch.

Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (Colman) is outraged when she comes back from vacation and discovers that the the Detective Inspector job has been given to newcomer Alec Hardy (Tennant). But she doesn't have time to focus on that, because the body of a local boy, Danny Latimer, is found dead on the beach. He's been strangled, and someone in peaceful little Broadchurch is responsible.

Since Miller has lived in Broadchurch for years and Danny was a friend of her son's, she's reluctant to see his friends and family as suspects. But in Hardy's eyes, everyone is a potential murderer, and the few clues that the investigation has turned up begin to slowly point at several people.

As the weeks go by, Danny's murder haunts his fractured family and threatens to drive them further from each other, even as they reluctantly accept some good news. And with no idea who committed the crime, the people of Broadchurch begin to suspect one another of the murder, unearthing ugly long-buried secrets and lies. As time begins running out to solve the murder, Hardy puts his own life on the line to discover who the culprit is.

"Broadchurch" is set up in a very different way from most murder mystery shows.
