TV show description:
This crime drama series revolves around the murder of an 11-year old whose body is discovered on a local beach. Detective Inspector Alex Hardy (David Tennant) is brought in to head up the murder investigation in the small seaside town of Broadchurch. His partner is local Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman).
The two detectives make a formidable team, although Hardy has a failed investigation in his past that has affected him deeply, and Miller resents having to work with the brusque outsider.
A grudging but deep mutual respect develops as they investigate the murder. Miller has to set aside her personal attachments to focus on the case and Hardy relies on her for her intimate knowledge about the local community.
The whole town reels with grief, mutual suspicion, and attention from the media. As the detectives collect evidence and interview suspects, some shocking truths are revealed.
Danny’s father, Mark Latimer (Andrew Buchan), and his mother Beth (Jodie Whittaker) already have a dysfunctional marriage and they battle to cope with their tragic loss.
