When the corpse of an 11-year-old British boy, Danny Latimer, is found bloodied and dirty on an idyllic beach, a small Dorset community becomes the focus of a police investigation and media madness. Out-of-town Detective Inspector Alec Hardy gets the point position over Detective Sgt. Ellie Miller -- who feels the job should have been hers. Now she must engage in an efficient working relationship with taciturn Hardy. Slowly, more members of the community of Broadchurch are drawn into the investigation, with a telephone engineer drawing great attention when he admits to a special connection to the case. While dealing with so much unwelcome attention, Danny's family tries to cope with its grief. When a suspect is named and charged, the ensuing trial sees the defendant promising to expose more of the townspeople's secrets.
The outstanding “Broadchurch”, which stars David Tennant in his best post-“Doctor Who“ role, is part of a wave of good-to-terrific new shows dwelling on the thorniest and most difficult consequences of crime and punishment. With a light but sure hand, “Broadchurch” carefully doles out pieces of information about an awful crime that shatters a community, and on one level — like many of the shows listed above — it’s simply an effective whodunnit. Thanks in part to terrific performances by Tennant and a fine supporting cast that includes Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”) and David Bradley (“Game of Thrones“), it becomes much more.--Maureen Ryan, Huffington Post, October 6, 2013
