Great show with a great cast. Once I started watching, I couldn't stop. The season one ending was very sad and I'm excited to see how they continue with season two.

This is an excellent and gripping British crime drama series! I binged on S1 and S2, and fell in love with the show! Season 1 was phenomenal, and heartbreaking to see how Danny's family struggled with his death. I feel like Season 2 fell a tad short as most of it focused on the trial, but it was interesting to see some issues from Hardy's past finally be resolved as well. Season 3 still featured the Latimer family, and showed how the family was coping a while after the death and trial, as well as focusing on a new case following the rape of Trish Winterman.

Hardy and Miller are a great team and work well together despite being yin and yang, with Hardy being the aggressive, ambitious detective which contrasts against Miller's more emotional and caring characteristics.

This is definitely one to watch if you like drama shows which delve deep and focus on a case each season.

Compelling drama which over the course of three seasons handles different crimes as well as the aftermath of those violent crime, be it murder of rape. Fantastic acting - especially from Coleman - from all involved and as several well plotted crime stories, where you think you know what happened only to have to rethink things at the end of every episode.

A stupendous murder mystery that analyzes the issues a whole town may face when secrets bubble to the surface. Tragic, emotional, and endearing, Broadchurch is a mystery must-watch

An unspeakable crime, the mourning of a family, prejudice of a whole town, destrcutive influence of the media paired with reckless opportunism, all facets of human behaviour - this is what you can expect in this British series. Keep guessing till the last episode who is the monster and guess it wrong till the end - and be surprised again.

This show has a lot of cliche detective things about it, but executes those really well and still has a way to make it original , which is definitely one of the things that makes this series so great.
