    Broadchurch is one of the best crime dramas I've seen, especially in this first series. It's your standard "small town with big secrets" theme taken to a whole new level as we are shown how a murder affects such a close-knit town, how secrets are discovered in every character under the pressure this investigation brings. The best thing about the show, however, is how pleasing it is to the senses: the music scores are fantastic, the choice of color and lighting is magnificent, and all of it is shot in front of a gorgeous seaside landscape. In short, Broadchurch is able to balance raw emotion with graceful cinematography, merging them to create riveting, funny, and elegant episodes.

    The first season is one of the best crime stories I've ever seen, with superb acting and a taught, slow-burn story. But do yourself a favour and stop after Season 1.

    Never-boring, gripping, tense, but touching and heart-wrenching at the same time. Unbelievable performance by Olivia Coleman, and some of the major casts.

    The first season of Broadchuch was a thrilling season to watch. Mixed with David Tennant's amazing performance, and the beautifully well crafted visuals, Broadchurch season 1 is definitely among some of the best crime-solving detective stories we have to date. I highly suggest you give it a watch.

    Acting was solid and emotional, while the cinematography was beautiful, but it felt as though the storyline was stretched out to develop enough suspects..

    Excellent first and second season! Acting was A+ and the plot line was terrific. Amazing ending that didn't make me feel cheated at all

    Aside from a couple of annoying characters was good viewing.

    Broadchurch. Say it out loud, or as a whisper, or as prayer. I cannot recommend this British mystery/police procedural television series enough. Broadchurch is a pull your mind from your body -into the story -show that makes you beg like Oliver Twist, "Please sir, I want some more." David Tenant and Olivia Colman are charismatic and have that natural screen chemistry that tells the viewers, yes, believe us. And, we do.
