As Broadchurch series 3 comes out on DVD, we chatted to Jodie Whittaker, the actor behind Beth Latimer. Spoilers...

Warning: contains Broadchurch series 1-3 spoilers.

David Tennant and Olivia Colman may have been Broadchurch’s leads, but Jodie Whittaker and Andrew Buchan were its heart. As bereaved parents Beth and Mark Latimer, those two formed the drama’s emotional spine. Their poignant performances were a constant across three series telling a long-form story about grief and resilience.

With Broadchurch series three out now on DVD, I spoke to Jodie Whittaker about the role of Beth, different responses to grief, the importance of female friendship and the hope contained in the Latimers’ final scenes…

Broadchurch series 3 episode 8 review

Spoilers from the start in our review of Broadchurch’s final episode, which finally reveals who attacked Trish...

This review contains spoilers. 

See related  Netflix's Bloodline to end after season 3

To really catch your whodunnit audience off-guard, make the culprit a kid. Twelve-year-old Bobby killed Lucy Beale on EastEnders. One-year-old Maggie shot Mr Burns on The Simpsons. And sixteen-year-old Michael raped Trish Winterman on Broadchurch. He didn’t want to; a bigger boy made him. That’s about the long and short of it. 

If I sound withering, forgive me. Broadchurch has done a great many things right this series, but revealing that Michael—groomed by swaggery young shit and serial rapist Leo—attacked Trish wasn’t among them.

Perhaps it’s plausible and rapists routinely recruit and induct apprentices, but Michael’s guilt had a little too much ‘Aha! Didn’t see that coming did you? »

The underrated film acting performances of 2016

4 January 2017 1:39 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Jan 6, 2017

Viola Davis, John Goodman, Bryce Dallas Howard and more, in our rundown of 2016's underrated movie acting work.

This article contains minor spoilers for Pete's Dragon, Suicide Squad and Warcraft: The Beginning.

Nobody is likely to look back on 2016 fondly, whether because of global political instability, celebrity deaths or the rejection of Boaty McBoatface as a suitable name for a research vessel. In the world of film, we note that a lot of the contenders in this year's awards season haven't even been released in UK cinemas yet, and it was hardly a banner year for blockbuster cinema either.

On the plus side, there were some exemplary smaller films, of the kind that awards bodies tend to overlook, released in the last 12 months. Without any apparent genre contenders, like The Martian or Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, this is a year in which performers are more likely »
