Preview – Broadchurch

Caroylin Pickles as Maggie Radcliffe in Broadchurch

The Bafta award-winning drama series reaches its penultimate episode. Ellie (Olivia Colman) and Hardy (David Tennant) continue to gather telling evidence – the only problem is, it doesn’t rule out any of the suspects. Nevertheless, they both feel noose is tightening.

Meanwhile, Trish Winterman (Julie Hesmondhalgh) tells Leah Winterman (Hannah Millward) she doesn’t feel safe going out and she fears for her daughter’s safety too.

The Latimers continue to bob along (Mark literally) in the more soapy tangential storyline. Are they a necessary ingredient to every series of the franchise? I think not. Stick to the investigation and leave the human interest stuff to Corrie and ‘Enders.

Broadchurch Monday at 9.00pm on ITV
