Broadchurch: Series 1 - DVD Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
BROADCHURCH is a sharp and powerful new thriller from ITV featuring a stellar all-star cast of British talent led by David Tennant and Olivia Colman.
This gripping eight-part drama written and created by Chris Chibnall (Law & Order UK, Doctor Who), explores what happens to a small community when it suddenly becomes the focus of a police investigation.
The series comes to DVD on May 20, 2013 and features a fantastic ensemble cast including Andrew Buchan (Garrow’s Law), Jodie Whittaker (Marchlands), Pauline Quirke (Emmerdale), Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who), Vicky McClure (This Is England ’86) and Will Mellor (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps).
It’s the start of the tourist season in Broadchurch, Dorset and an 11-year old boy disappears. His mother, Beth, frantically searches for him while her best friend, Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman), a local police officer, arrives at work to discover that she’s been passed over for the promotion she’d been expecting for an outsider with a reputation for failure, D.I. Alec Hardy (David Tennant).
When the young boy’s body is found beneath the picturesque cliffs that dominate the town opposites collide. Both Miller and Hardy are determined to solve the mystery of Danny’s murder, Ellie perhaps too sensitive to the people in her community; Alec as efficient as he is blunt.
When news of the crime spreads through the town, a chain reaction begins which will put Broadchurch under a national spotlight, pulling the town, its residents and its secrets, apart.
Broadchurch is British drama at its best and will have you gripped until the very last moment.
Special features include Broadchurch: Behind the Scenes, Cast Filmographies, Picture Gallery and Subtitles.
