brilliant! tightlycwoven mystery and great characters! I absolutely adore DT, have seen the promos for the upcoming fall series and have listened to my friend's lament that they had "americanized" a brit production. Personally, I can't wait to see the series to compare but mostly to see how he reprises his role in an American setting.

Intense, compelling, and addictive. This British detective drama is more about the characters in this small village than the crime. I eagerly await the second season.

The intent is to depict a fairly realistic murder investigation in a three-dimensional town. The story is, unfortunately, a standard cop show mystery: parents have no clue what their kids are into (and it's always criminal), police have tortured personal lives relevant to the crime at hand, and journalists are selfish and hound people to death all in a day's work. One day, they may switch it up; maybe the cops can be selfish, and the journalists tortured. That said, the standard of writing is generally high, the cast is first rate, and the photography of the locations is the best I have seen in an English television program. BONUS: charmingly scruffy David Tennant, rather than charmingly sparkly David Tennant.

As close to perfect as it gets. The casting & acting, plot, setting, lighting, background music, lovely Dorset coast are all one harmonious whole. The plot, which is hardly original, was made subtly fascinating by the acting/directing. David Tennant, sporting a Yasser Arafat beard, is flawless. The "Extras" discussions revealed that the actors themselves didn't know who the killer was until almost the end and neither did I. I am really looking forward to series 2.

Pretty much everything you will ever want from a murder mystery series. Exceptional storytelling.

The series is interesting enough and it does keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot, though, is kind of "been there, done that" and the ending was a major disappointment. The great part about this series, though, is character arcs. You get to know a lot of the characters. This is an ensemble piece, and the writer did a great job in trying to explore many of the character's lives. The actors are great! David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Andrew Buchan, Jodie Whittaker, and Pauline Quirke are splendid. All of the actors were great, though. Their portrayals of the their characters were realistic and believable. This series recently won a few BAFTA awards too, so it's worth checking out, but it's not the best or the most original story out there. Highly recommended for the acting.

Terrific acting, compelling story, great atmosphere and soundtrack---these all make for an addictive and edge-of-your-seat watching experience. I loved it!

This series is out-of-order!
An 11 year old small town boy turns up dead in a small town,full of ordinary yet peculiar characters.
The twists and turns, makes it more intriguing & difficult to determine the culprit, but definitely peaks & keeps your interest with every episode.
Great show! Looking forward to s2.

Pretty good. The final twist is handled a bit differently than 99% of the other crime dramas that have similar plots (and that's one of the problems with this - the plot; i.e., motive for murder, is getting BEYOND worn out). Other than that, though, quite good. Doesn't come close to 'The Fall' or 'Prime Suspect'. Tennant's auburn locks (an attempt to make him more Scottish, I suppose) look fake in several scenes, especially with his naturally chestnut brunette facial hair. No biggee, though, since he does such a great job in the role.
