Critic Reviews for Broadchurch: Series One

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (3)

Broadchurch is based on a generic premise, but nothing feels stale. With depth and passion, Colman brings her character's profound questioning to vibrant life.

It's just a thing of beauty all the way around.

Full Review… | August 8, 2013
Hollywood Reporter

Broadchurch doesn't come with many stylistic flourishes -- it's a pretty straightforward crime story. But the care given to its characters and the damage the crime inflicts on the town make it one of the best scripted series of the summer.

Most viewers will probably tune in to see Tennant in a dark and unfamiliar role, but as great as he is in the role, the real standout performance comes from Olivia Colman.

Under the Radar

It's beautifully filmed with an exceptional score and an extraordinary company of players.

Boston Herald

This is grim subject matter, and the show doesn't often pull back from its essential sadness, but this is also a show about people who are determined to fight back.

Top Critic

It's everything great drama should be -- riveting, raw, heartbreaking, funny and very, very smart.

Full Review… | August 8, 2013
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

There's something fundamentally unsatisfying about the whole thing. We've just been to this particular narrative well too many times in 2013, to the point where the "murder in a small town" template feels played out.

New York Magazine/Vulture

Simply a well-written, well-produced and well-acted murder mystery that's a pleasure to watch.

Full Review… | August 8, 2013
New York Daily News

Broadchurch is a police procedural, and an effective one, but what renders it special is the way it tracks the ways that physical and emotional violence haunts everyone in the town.

Full Review… | August 7, 2013

Broadchurch isn't melodramatic-if anything, it has a stylized, moody, sea-breeze chill-but it leaves its heart exposed all the same.

TIME Magazine
Top Critic

I can't recall a mystery series moving me as frequently and profoundly as Broadchurch's masterful and sensitively rendered study of poisonous suspicion that infects an otherwise peaceful, deceptively sunny British seaside village.

TV Guide

Broadchurch... is the only show about the murder of a child that I have ever found spiritually salubrious.

Full Review… | August 7, 2013
Salon.com

Broadchurch manages to be both a finely crafted piece of suspenseful entertainment and also an emotionally resonant examination of grief, loss and moral confusion.

Full Review… | August 6, 2013
Huffington Post

Broadchurch, with its recurring crashing waves wiping some slates clean, is thoroughly captivating from start to finish.

Uncle Barky

It's among the best detective shows - and perhaps even among the best dramas - in several years. It will break your heart and keep you guessing all the way through.

Broadchurch is simply a knockout.

A little patience is required but rewarded.

Despite some flaws, Broadchurch is beautifully filmed, sharply directed and intensely acted.

As always, execution matters. Broadchurch's is practically note-perfect.

With each sharply written episode, we learn more and more about Danny, his parents, his 15-year-old sister, his friends, and other members of the close-knit town.

While Mr. Tennant is the marquee name, Broadchurch really belongs to Olivia Colman.

This gripping whodunit is further proof that the Brits have a special talent for murder mysteries.

The cinematography is as stellar as the cast.

Denver Post

When Broadchurch dangles a possible suspect, it's earned that by letting viewers get to know the characters better.

[It's] visually striking, from the mesmerizing rows of identical housing to the sweeping coastal views. It's only too bad the series doesn't have more flair in terms of its narrative properties.
