Very interesting first episode
30 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Scenery that makes you think, "Is this really our planet?", but also draws you into an almost desolate place with a fear of death not only by the elements, or polar bears, but now a murderer.

A town like this in the middle of nowhere needs to thrive on something, and when one of its main sources of income shows sign of possible loss, the town now relies on another source of income, and this income that could be their hope for the future, comes under threat.

There are many interesting characters introduced quickly, perhaps too quickly, but enough to let you know - you have no idea who is guilty of what, yet. However, the plot gives enough away to throw possible red herrings, and the end of the episode leaves you wanting more.

Two thirds of the way through, though hooked, I felt, "What is going on here?", not good, but not bad either. By the end of the episode though, there is enough to make you need to see the next step, to see the new detective in town prove his worth against people that either want him in, or want him out. Everyone has a reason to see that detective leave or stay.

Come on now, please do a Broadchurch season 1, not a season 2;)
