Broadchurch: Episode 6

Files are piling up at the police station but, with no fresh leads or witnesses, the case is stalling and morale is low. Hardy is stunned when he's told to scale back resources and feels his hope of catching Danny's killer is slipping away. However, at the Broadchurch Echo, Maggie grows determined to solve a mystery that has taken a very personal turn for her. How will her efforts affect the official investigation?

The strain of the apparently stalled investigation into the murder of 11-year-old Danny Latimer is taking a dramatic toll on DI Alec Hardy. He’s been denounced in the national press as “the Worst Cop in Britain” and whatever it is that ails him seems to be getting worse.

It’s eight weeks since Danny’s body was discovered on Broadchurch beach and autumn has arrived. There are signs that the community wants to move on and even Danny’s family are tentatively putting the bricks of their shattered lives back into place. It’s good to see the Latimers smiling again, but the effort is huge. Their son’s killer is still out there, somewhere.
