Broadchurch Episode One Review

Episode one of Broadchurch was a hands-down success as David Tennant fit the bill and acted his heart out.  He’s one of my favorite British actors. The drama has plenty of other well-known stars that also contribute to its success. Here we present one of the excellent reviews of  the first episode of Broadchurch.

Broadchurch Episode One Review

Broadchurch, ITV’s new offering, which debuted last night at 9pm, is a chilling murder mystery that steers clear of the usual picture-postcard format and held together by an impressive ensemble of cast including Olivia Colman, David Tennant, Andrew Buchan and Jodie Whittaker. The eight-part series, written by Chris Chibnall (of ‘Doctor Who’, ‘United’ fame), focuses on the devastating fallout in a small community when the body of 11-year-old Danny Latimer (Oskar McNamara) is found on the beach, evoking panic and suspicion in the hearts of residents of a small seaside town. David Tennant is the detective with a past brought in to investigate, Olivia Colman is the local copper struggling to separate work and her real friendships.

Oilvia Colman stars as DS Ellie Miller, a detective who knows the Latimer family. She has been recently passed over for promotion and is forced to tackle the case with her newly appointed boss, DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) who has arrived from the Met, his career in the doldrums after he bungles up a high-profile murder case.

Now that you are hooked onto it, you know for sure that the dark undertow small-town Dorset will be pulling you deeper for the next seven Monday nights. We’ll find out who strangled 11-year-old Danny, maybe while his mother was watching telly instead of checking in on him, and on the way we’ll learn about the skeletons in each one’s cupboard. In just one hour minus adverts last night we discovered that Broadchurch had more hidden skeletons than Pol Pot’s dungeons in a blackout!
