    But, seriously, I think the second season will have a lot about Ellie dealing with the ramifications of what happened, how people treat her now etc. And throwing herself into the job as an escape. I don't think she will move. The town wasn't that small but they did have it that having someone murdered was unusual. But maybe the force also deals with the larger county? Or maybe, as it's a tourist town, the next murder will be of a tourist.

    Re: Broadchurch on BBC America

    I'm so glad everyone else was as surprised by the reveal as I was! Okay, part of that is because I would have felt really stupid if everyone else guessed the ending and I didn't, but still The fact that they could keep viewers guessing all the way until the very end is a testament to how good the writing is. There are some murder mysteries on shows where the reveal is either super obvious OR I just don't care when they do reveal the murderer. This show was the complete opposite. Like I said upthread, it made total sense and, looking back I could see all of the little clues, but I didn't put it together at the time.

    I really can't imagine another mystery that could top this one, but because that's not the only thing this show has going for it, I'm not concerned. I agree that, with such a small town, you can't keep killing people off. It'll start looking like at Agatha Christie movie! The acting and writing are just SO good that I'm excited to see what they're going to give us next season.

    I agree with Critical that as we look back, there were some subtle clues that made it a logical solution.

    In addition to keeping us in suspense and fully invested throughout, I also thought it was the most devastating solution for just about all the villagers.

    Do we know if there will be another season of Broadchurch? As I mentioned above the shows creators are set to do another police drama for BBC1 that I hope will turn up on BBC America.

    Saw a bit in the news that said the lead detectives will be back but it will be set in another town (re Season 2).

    And David Tennant will be reprising his role for an American remake of the show as well.

    I kind of suspected they'd be in another town for season 2. They could hardly go back there after everything that transpired plus it was kind of a small town for another big murder, I would think. The only thing that perplexes me is that the name of the town was Broadchurch. so I don't see how that title can apply to the new season. Not that I really care about that if the quality remains the same.

    I'm not all that thrilled about an American remake even with David Tenant. As an American, I always prefer to watch the original set where it belongs and we never do British series anywhere near as well as they do.

    Yes they said they were going to keep the name fir the second series despite the change in towns. Which makes sense, as that is what people know it as, and under another name people might be unaware it is the same show.

    I'm not sure about an American remake. If it is the exact same plot except set in the US ... Well, I've already watched that show. If they tweak and change it...I'd probably watch the first one and judge then.
