Sunday 11th May, 8.30pm

The television event that drew in 10 million viewers in the UK arrives on TV ONE.

When the body of an 11-year-old Danny Latimer is found on a picturesque beach in the English town of Broadchurch, out-of-town police officer Alec Hardy (David Tennant, Doctor Who) and local cop Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman, Hot Fuzz) are called in to investigate.

While Danny’s death remains unresolved, the seaside town is at the heart of a major police investigation and national media frenzy as one by one, the community of Broadchurch are drawn into the police enquiry.
DS Ellie Miller struggles to view her friends and neighbours as suspects, but DI Hardy’s clinical methods force Ellie to see the community she grew up in through a different light in order to find the killer in their midst.

Broadchurch manages to be both a finely crafted piece of suspenseful entertainment and also an emotionally resonant examination of grief, loss and moral confusion.” – The Huffington Post
