Broadchurch is a crime drama that toys with your emotions. While watching this you are not in the drivers seat of your feelings. But that isn't a bad thing! Quite the opposite. The general atmosphere the show presents us with sets the mood. Perhaps best described as foreboding and melancholy. Either keep some chocolate nearby while watching to help bring some light in or just fully immerse yourself into the dread.

Being from a small coastal town myself, Broadchurch gets the small-town feeling just right. People know each other. Or they think they do. As the show goes on the characters, and by extension the viewers, have more and more doubts about each and everyone. Though perhaps a bit generous with the use of red herrings, the show always keeps us guessing, second guessing, and then eventually triple guessing our seventh guess.

Broadchurch is perhaps the best crime drama of the decade. I would recommend it to anyone.

Fast moving with pace where needed. A good presentation of human nature; how partial information can ruin lives; how fast people judge each other.
Very good acting.

One of the best shows I have ever seen. Olivia Colman, David Tennant, and Jodie Whittaker, along with the rest of the cast, are impeccable actors. There are three seasons... check them all out!

An excellent British crime series, Broadchurch Season 1 tells of a young boy's murder in a small coastal town. This series will keep you on your toes all the way through. Very emotional. Also features three Doctor Who Doctors (David Tennant as the main cop, Jodie Whittaker (the new doctor) as the Victim's mom, and David Bradley (the current First Doctor replacement) as the news agent). A must for fans of cop shows, British Drama and David Tennant.

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.
