Broadchurch

TV-Series | GB 2013 | 46' | OV

The small provincial town of Broadchurch at Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is shook up by the death of 11-year-old Danny. It’s not only his family that is torn apart by events, but also the newly appointed Inspector Hardy, recently transferred from the city, and the emotional Ellie, whose job was given to Hardy, have to solve some private issue while sifting through the dirty little secrets of the community. And the local newspaper staff around rookie reporter Olly also tries to get their big break from the case. The opening images of the sleeping parents ad the bleeding teenager standing on a cliff set a tone just as drastic and urgent as the picture of the murdered Laura Palmer once did. And indeed, in this British eight-episode crime series, it is again the death of a small town teenager told as a stirring mixture of family tragedy, community drama, whodunit crime puzzle and police thriller. With a stellar cast around David Tennant the series was very successful both in the UK and the US, with a US remake already in the works.
