A brilliant series with impeccable performances. Began watching because of David Tennant but grew to love the entire cast. Highly recommend.

This never did more than mildly intrigue me. I found the plot tedious and the red herrings predictable.

British crime drama set in the fictional town of Broadchurch a coastal community in Dorset, England. 8 episodes and the crime drama takes all 8 episodes. Starts with the death of an 11 year old boy. Just about everyone in the town has a secret incident in their lives, so just about the everyone in the town are suspects in the murder. The character are richly portrayed and the murder is a surprise - one you won't figure out until the end. A good drama that will keep you guessing and keep you watching.

I typically prefer comedy series, but this dark drama hooked me with fantastic writing, acting and character development as well as its setting. Even its music score is superb. The entire first season follows a single murder investigation, so don't expect a new mystery or case with each episode.

Loved this series! Nonstop suspense, and shows how you never truly know your friends or neighbours. No matter how small and welcoming a town may seem. Can't wait for series 2!
