Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, Broadchurch is not based on or a remake of Danish show The Killing, and the script for Broadchurch actually predates The Killing by at least five years. Chris Chibnall originally had the idea for Broadchurch and started working on the script in 2002. However it took him ten years to get the show on air. See more »

Goofs

At several points in the series, during interrogations Ellie refers to the recording device on the table as "the tape", when it is clearly an audio CD recorder, not a tape machine. See more »

Drama of the year.
2 August 2013 | by (tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

The most extraordinary story ever, written & produced by Chris Chipnall, one of the top British writers today. A Brilliant cast, featuring the cream of British actors. The best drama of the year, keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire film. The locations for this film are beautiful.

The body of a 11year old boy is found on the beach in Dorset, England. The murder and following investigation create a chain reaction that will tear this small seaside town apart. A town wrapped in secrets, like most small towns anywhere in the world, and they become known as the investigation proceeds. The Murderer remains veiled until the final episode and a surprise and more importantly the reason. The two investigators, DI Hardy a harden, efficient, and blunt outsider with the reputation for failure - played brilliantly by David Tennant - and DS Miller a sensitive and friendly local - played by the extraordinary Olivia Coleman. The interactions between these two is amazing - some of the best dialog and zingers - like when Miller tells Hardy "leave me alone or I will p--- in a cup and throw it on you." - Or when Hardy tells Miller "I pray nightly that you will leave me alone." The remaining Cast is spectacular - you can actually feel the grief and suspicion coming from their characters. The film is well worth watching if you love great drama and great acting.
