Broadchurch Series 2 episode 8 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD. The finale of the second series of Broadchurch has finally arrived. After eight weeks, everything comes to an end. While the series 1 finale of Broadchurch was tense, emotional and just all around brilliant, sadly, this finale is not. The episode starts immediately where episode 7 left off. Joe Miller’s (Matthew Gravelle) verdict has been reached and in a shocking twist (and a rather bad night for the British...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 7 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD The penultimate episode of Broadchurch series 2 is upon us and while it isn’t as strong as its predecessor in series 1, this one is still pretty good. “It never ends well, does it?” asks Claire (Eve Myles) during a flashback which reveals that she almost certainly slept with Alec Hardy (David Tennant). This was a very powerful opening line which could very well be foreshadowing the finale, which...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 6 review
The second series of Broadchurch is nearing its end and while last week’s episode was a strong comeback for the series, unfortunately episode six is not as strong. The episode begins with Tom Miller (Adam Wilson) being called to the witness box to give evidence to help defend his father Joe Miller (Matthew Gravelle) where he predictably reveals his secret meetings with Mark Latimer (Andrew Buchan) to the court. For once, this trial scene and...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 4 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD Broadchurch’s second series has reached its halfway point and while the show’s previous episode was one of the weaker ones, this week’s episode, while flawed, is thankfully a lot stronger. The episode begins with a mysterious image (it wouldn’t be Broadchurch without one) of Alec Hardy (David Tennant) struggling against a current. But this mystery is resolved quickly; it was Hardy trying to...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 3 review
Broadchurch series 2 is nearing the halfway point and the third episode of the ITV drama continues to provide tension, shock and fantastic entertainment. The episode starts off immediately where last week’s ended. Lee (James D’Arcy) has kidnapped Claire Ripley (Eve Myles) and is being pursued by Alec Hardy (David Tennant).
