Broadchurch (TV Series)


Broadchurch is a British television crime drama created and written by Chris Chibnall, broadcast on ITV and produced by Kudos. It stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman. Casting was announced in June 2012, with filming commencing in Clevedon in August as well as in West Bay in Bridport. It premiered on 4 March 2013 at 9:00pm on ITV. In January 2013, the series was acquired by BBC America, where it was shown in the United States beginning August 7, 2013. In Spain, Atresmedia Corporation bought the rights in April 2013 and started to be broadcasted on September 17, 2014, at 10:30pm on Antena 3. The action is set on the Dorset coast and the story revolves around the death of an eleven-year-old boy, and the search for his murderer by detectives Alec Hardy (Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Colman). Its first series achieved high ratings for ITV, winning critical acclaim, while also generating a large amount of publicity around the “whodunit” mystery. After the first series ended, ITV announced that Broadchurch would return for a second series. (Information taken from Wikipedia). For my taste it’s a superb example of a really good TV series. Absolutely essential viewing. (The Hollywood Reporter)

One thought on “Broadchurch (TV Series)

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with your review of this series. I thought it was excellent.
    Now a U.S. version is playing, with David Tennant and Anna Gunn (playing Olivia Coleman’s part).
    Both are fine, although I am dismayed that U.S. TV would not ask Coleman, but wanted a more
    glamorous actress.
    You should make sure and see David Tennant and Sophie Okonado in The Escape Artist. It
    is such a terrific thriller, legal, psychological, fast-paced, matching of wits. It’s BBC.
