Given that Chris Chibnall's story was about the murder of a child, it was always unlikely that Broadchurch would end on a cheery note. But even so, the concluding episode was a serious downer with an irredeemably bleak message: don't trust anyone, especially those closest to you.

Poor DS Miller. It wasn't enough that her husband was a bit dull, in a bald new-mannish sort of way; he also turned out to be a homicidal paedophile. Try explaining that to the neighbours. Miller believed in community, family and her marriage. She wanted to think the best of people, and all along the very worst was taking refuge under her nose, in her bed. »
