TV: "Broadchurch" the Second Season
Returning are detectives Alec Hardy, played by David Tennant, and Ellie Miller, played by Olivia Colman. In this new story, their characters have never left the fictional seaside town of Broadchurch. Now they face a new mystery. The new and the old weave in and out of season two. Elements of season one’s mystery haunt them and even come back to bite them.
Series creator Chris Chibnall wrote the clever new eight-episode series and he brings more of his magic to this show. He introduces several new characters and further explores the lives of the people introduced in season one.
“Broadchurch," season two, is something all mystery lovers and all lovers of good TV should watch. But for those new to this series, do not start here. Go back to season one, episode one, and enjoy.

Enjoyed this one as well, but a fraction less than season one if I'm honest. It was still very good though.ReplyDelete
Col – You were the one who put me on to BROADCHURCH, and I should have thanked you in the post for the great tip.Delete
No problem, just glad you and your wife enjoyed it just as much as me and mine! Not everything travels well across the Atlantic.Delete
Elgin, I haven't seen a good British television series in some years now. I think I'd enjoy "Broadchurch." David Tenant seems to have done a lot of TV, none of which I'm familiar with, not even "Doctor Who."ReplyDelete
Prashant – I think you will like this series. As for Tennant, and Olivia Colman too, both were unknown to me until this year.Delete
