Broadchurch a little town off the coast in England where nothing happens much. Tourist season is about to come in when a 11 years old boy is found dead on the beach and the search for his murderer by detectives Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman). Little did they know they are going to uncover the town secrets.

Here is a great whodunit series from the British. So let’s recap this you have the series from Denmark the Killing then you have the remake the killing form the U.S. Then now there is Broadchurch but no it is not the remake it is their own version of Whodunit, and do I love this one I am telling you you have to watch series from other countries you will see the difference of culture, and how the cops and the law is in this country plus the landscape. The American are going to make the remake called Gracepoint. Thrillers and murder mysteries are well done by the Danish. The mysteries murder are also well done by the British they are good at it.  Broadchurch pairs 2 cops with two different personalities.  Miller (Olivia Colman) is an empathetic officer who loves her job, her family, friends and her hometown. She is having a hard time with the murder this is the first in this town. Hardy (David Tennant) is a brutal outsider with no connections to the town  and no patience for anything that gets in the way of solving the case, and on the top of it he hates the town and the locals. He comes with a bunch of secrets and baggage from a similar case. Both of them butts heads learn from each other and decide to solve this case. Great cast in this one even the cinematography is impressive. Little by little you discover secrets that the town people holds. Some of them acts suspiciously at times and you wonder what is that person hiding. Do not miss this one. This series is the most watch in France as well.
