    Re: Broadchurch on BBC America

    I just finished watching it. Great show - right up there with Luther for me. The length seemed just right - there wasn't a lot of repetition or stretching plot lines out. It really moved along. I like that about British shows - a season's worth of shows can be 4, 6, 8 or more episodes. The Luther seasons are always too short for me (6, 6 & 4 episodes), but in the end, I'd rather be left wishing there was more than watching a show drag because they're just filling time.

    It left me wanting more, that's always an indication of how good a show is

    Episode 7 - the interviews with Susan and Nigel were riveting. At this point you still don't know who did it and then there was the dinner with the Latimer's daughter and and boyfriend and the info he dropped. And there was the info that DI Hardy revealed to the newspaper people about the other case. This show is like peeling an onion with all its layers. Can't wait for the finale.

    Even though I watched the last episode, I'm still thinking about the characters. I'm going to go back re-watch it I was so interested in finding out who did it, I'm sure there are a lot of subtle things I missed.

    I didn't have time this morning to watch a whole episode, so I watched one of the 10-min extra bits on Comcast On Demand. Apparaently, none of the cast knew who the killer was until they filmed the last episode. So there was constant talk and speculation among the cast and crew about who the killer might be. David Tennant & Olivia Colman said that when they were filming their scenes questioning people, some of the glances between them were quite real - looking over at each other as if saying maybe this is the clue that solves it.

    I cried at the end. That means they got me to really care about the families. I like that.

    I didn't see the ending coming either. Which is just another reason I liked this show this much.

    I'm wondering what they're going to do for a second season. Just how many murders can they have in a small town? Though I guess the town isn't that small considering the size of the police force. I was thinking maybe they'd move the locale to a bigger town - surely Ellie would want to move her kids away for a fresh start - but then it's not in Broadchurch.

    Episode 8 - Wow..didn't see that coming but when you step back and really look at the over all picture it makes perfect sense. Luv'ed the pacing, luv'ed that we saw how the family was effected, how we saw the consequences on the town, luv'ed the healing circle of bonfires..just bloody brilliant. Bravo BBC.







    PS: To Danny's mom, Beth, after she told Ellie (the detective) "how could you not know" I have to bounce that question right back at her and "how could she not know" about Danny and what he was doing?

    Count me among those who did not anticipate the ending. This was a quality show from start to finish. Amazing.

    Just read that the producers are going to do a police drama called River for BBC. I sure hope it makes it over to BBC America.
