A very good drama,
This review is from: Broadchurch [DVD]  (DVD)
'Broadchurch' was definitely a compelling drama and one of the best shown so far this year. Well acted across the board, a story that kept you guessing and a conclusion that was touching and struck just the right note. Dramas like this make you realise that British TV can be every bit as good as their American counterparts.
So why not five stars? I think that eight episodes was too many. Even though the suspense was evenly spread, I felt it was dragged out just a little too much and maybe six episodes might have been better. Still, this was very good TV and I think that several awards might well be forthcoming.
