Critic Reviews for Broadchurch: Season 2

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (13)

The thrill is gone along with the subtlety.

March 4, 2015 | Full Review…

What a relief... to find that the first four episodes of season two... are a promising continuation of season one.

March 3, 2015 | Full Review…

What saves Broadchurch this season and is likely to keep people from jumping off the bandwagon is the cast, especially the new additions.

March 2, 2015 | Full Review…

How credulous, I wonder, does Broadchurch's writer, Chris Chibnall, think we are?

January 15, 2015 | Full Review…

It looks like the second series of ITV's popular thriller is going to be far more interesting than we can usually expect from such a highly-anticipated follow-up.

January 6, 2015 | Full Review…

This bolt from the blue made me realise just how powerful and compelling the case of Danny Latimer was and how satisfying it was to rake over what had gone before.

Audience Reviews for Broadchurch: Season 2

This season deals with the fall out from the first. It builds on a lot of the stories from the first season and brings in new characters that help to flesh out the happenings in Broadchurch months after the first season ends. It has a very appropriate and satisfying ending with another crime that Miller and Hardy reopen as one of the season's main storylines. This could've been the ending to the show but word is the BBC has greenlit another season. Will be interested to see where it goes from here.


Super Reviewer

Despite its rocky beginning on an otherwise great season, the new chapter of Broadchurch improves on nearly every aspect upon the previous entry, with Chris Chibnall's writing fleshing out its talented cast while introducing new and intruguing characters, and the already remarkable cinematography reaches exciting new levels of greatness.
