Broadchurch still succeeds in using its mystery as way of delving into deeper emotions.

For fans of the show's procedural elements, this is a good ending, and as "satisfying" a culprit reveal as could be. Still, in its final bow, Broadchurch jettisoned a lot of what made it so special, and that can only be seen as a missed opportunity.

... was wonderfully good, then appallingly bad, and now looks as if it might, tentatively, be good again.

Chibnall has also sustained an admirable level of tension through these final eight episodes of "Broadchurch" and closes the series satisfactorily.

Tennant and Colman are the marquee players, though. Their consuming dedications to duty drive Broadchurch through its thickets of who was where and when and why. Theirs is one of TV's best-ever detective duos.

Broadchurch, one of the best British imports in recent memory, ends its three-season run ... in both bittersweet and (slightly) disappointing fashion.

The message about sex cheapened and emotions stunted by internet porn felt more sociology lecture than prime-time drama. But at least Broadchurch kept you hanging on by your fingertips.

Broadchurch is back on fine form, finally. After an implausible second series that struggled to deliver sensitive storylines with subtlety, Chris Chibnall's popular drama has returned to its best.
July 9, 2018
The show gave the genre a much-needed injection of British understatement, stoicism and bleak humour, raising the bar for everything that dared to follow.

What elevates "Broadchurch" above other crime dramas is its empathy for its characters' travails and, of course, the enduring chemistry between the two leads.
January 8, 2018
Broadchurch used its same strengths from the first two seasons, where there was already a dual focus: the case and the community.
December 29, 2017
This drama could be a disaster again - but the cast will do everything possible to turn it into a triumph. And that makes Broadchurch III too intriguing to miss.
December 29, 2017
It's almost too unbearable to watch, yet Broadchurch manages to keep its audience invested in what is happening to Trish in the moment.
December 26, 2017
Colman is once again the star player... she brings humanity, strength and determination to Miller, one of the most brilliantly realised and affecting characters on mainstream TV.

After a divisive second series, Broadchurch is back on top... and we sincerely hope it stays there.
December 26, 2017
It's quietly brilliant.
December 26, 2017
The magnetic performances of Tennant and Colman keep the series together; the two acclaimed actors are always able to navigate the show's odder moments with interesting takes.
October 26, 2017
Like a battered fishing trawler, episode two of Broadchurch rolled into port bearing a fresh catch of red herrings on Sunday night.
September 6, 2017
Broadchurch's tense series three opener more than makes up for the sketchy second series.
August 31, 2017
... it's this sense of humanity that takes an otherwise standard police procedural and gives it emotional power.
