No sophomore blues for ITV’s involving drama
Spoilers past here.......
The most shocking moment though occurs when the Latimers hand Miller a list of potential suspects- “but these are your friends” she responds with disbelief. It signifies just how isolated such a life changing event isolates people from even those who might be considered close to them. It’s not mentioned in the script but a large proportion of murders are committed by someone the victim knows.
The rapport between Hardy and Miller remains sharp and awkward; extremely well played by both David Tennant and Olivia Coleman and this week also brings some stellar work from Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill and in just a handful of lines the very scary Pauline Quirke. In the instant way Sherlock did last year, Broadchurch is looking set to be the must see drama of the year; if you’ve resisted all the hype and fuss so far then it’s time to jump in.
