ITV's Broadchurch is bloody brilliant TV that proves anything the Danish can do, we can do with Pauline Quirke lurking behind a caravan as a cherry on top. It's The Killing with West Country accents and 99 Flakes rather than knitted jumpers and subtitles.
We're only one hour into the eight-part crime drama, but my head is already spinning with possibilities as to who killed 11-year-old Danny Latimer.
Was it his shifty-looking dad (Andrew Buchan), who looks like he's been getting his end away more often than a Premier League footballer in a strip club? Did cornershop owner David Bradley do it with 50 pence of sherbet lemons? Are Arthur Darvill's reverend and David Tennant's detective inspector in a Doctor Who conspiracy?
The list of suspects is as long as a Peter Jackson movie and on a purely whodunnit level, the show is gripping entertainment.
