Broadchurch


Great series! I'm not sure I'm giving anything away when I say that I sussed out who the killer was in episode six (there are eight episodes, for the record). I don't think it was that hard to figure it out, which perhaps isn't saying much for the writing...? But it really was a gripping series, not to mention depressing as hell. Of course what do you expect when the character who has been murdered is a child?

There are a lot of annoying characters to be had, and they all seem capable of murder, but then everyone is capable under the right (or wrong) circumstances, as my boyfriend David Tennant would say. Speaking of him, it bothers me how they always give the lead detective some  major issues. Most of the time it's alcoholism and depression. I won't give his problems away, but I did have to roll my eyes when it first made an appearance. You know how much I adore predictability.

Still, this is a must watch for anyone who loves a good murder mystery! You'll have trouble waiting to watch the next episode.

My grade: A-
