Broadchurch

Broadchurch is a British serial crime drama television series broadcast on ITV for three series between 2013 and 2017. It was created by Chris Chibnall, who acted as an executive producer and wrote all 24 episodes, and produced by Kudos Film and Television, Shine America, and Imaginary Friends. The series is set in Broadchurch, a fictional English town in Dorset, and focuses on police detectives DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman). The series features an ensemble cast that, in addition to Tennant and Colman, includes Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Carolyn Pickles, Arthur Darvill, Charlotte Beaumont, Adam Wilson and Matthew Gravelle. The first series, which premiered on 4 March 2013, focuses on the death of local 11-year-old Danny Latimer and the impact of grief, mutual suspicion and media attention on the town. Danny's family (his mother Beth, father Mark and sister Chloe) are a key focus for the first series. The second series, which premiered on 5 January 2015, follows the dual storylines of bringing Danny's killer to justice and a case from the past returning to haunt Hardy. The third and final series, which premiered on 27 February 2017, focuses on the rape of a local woman at a birthday party, while the Latimer family go to extreme lengths to move on from Danny's death. Chibnall has indicated that the third series will be the last and that he originally envisioned Broadchurch as being a trilogy. All three series received critical acclaim, with praise directed towards the writing, cinematography and character development.

DI Alec Hardy:
[shouts from his office] Miller? [Leaving his office he walks over to Miller who remains seated at her desk] Reconstruction, Thursday night, one week on? Your boy Tom should do it.

DS Ellie Miller:
What? No I don't want him to.

DI Alec Hardy:
[Hardy interrupts] No. He's the best choice.

DS Ellie Miller:
Did you not hear what I just said? He's just lost his best friend. That could traumatize him for life.

DI Alec Hardy:
Well, maybe he should be allowed to decide.

DS Ellie Miller:
No... I'm his mum... I decide!

DI Alec Hardy:
Oh, so your commitment to this investigation stops outside these doors?

DS Ellie Miller:
With respect sir, move away from me now, or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you!

DI Alec Hardy:
[ignores comment] Talk to... [struggles to remember a name] [Miller looks at Hardy with disgust]

DI Alec Hardy:
What's your husbands name? Joe? Talk to him about it, and Tom.

DS Ellie Miller:
[Miller digresses] You're invited to dinner.

DI Alec Hardy:
[Hardy looks confused] What?

DS Ellie Miller:
Pick a night

DI Alec Hardy:
In your house, why?

DS Ellie Miller:
Do you know many people here?

DI Alec Hardy:
No.

DS Ellie Miller:
Are you living off hotel food?

DI Alec Hardy:
It's not a good idea.

DS Ellie Miller:
Please don't be an arsehole about it. Believe me, I don't really wanna do it either, but it's what people do.

DI Alec Hardy:
Is it?

DS Ellie Miller:
[Raises her voice] Yes! They have their bosses round. We don't have to talk about work.

DI Alec Hardy:
What do we talk about?

DS Ellie Miller:
I don't know, just say yes...

DI Alec Hardy:
[Hardy mumbles] Yeah.

DS Ellie Miller:
Thank you, bloody hell! [Hardy walks away and Millers attention returns to her computer as she insults him under her breath] Knob!
