CANADA: Broadchurch Marathon Airs On BBC Canada Today

Viewers in Canada can watch the first half of the incredible UK drama series Broadchurch today on BBC Canada. Episodes 1 - 4 air consecutively this afternoon from 12pm. David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller who must not only find the killer of a young boy but also attempt to keep a community calm in the wake of the tragedy.

When the corpse of an 11-year-old British boy, Danny Latimer, is found bloodied and dirty on an idyllic beach, a small Dorset community becomes the focus of a police investigation and media madness. Out-of-town Detective Inspector Alec Hardy gets the point position over Detective Sgt. Ellie Miller -- who feels the job should have been hers. Now she must engage in an efficient working relationship with taciturn Hardy. Slowly, more members of the community of Broadchurch are drawn into the investigation, with a telephone engineer drawing great attention when he admits to a special connection to the case. While dealing with so much unwelcome attention, Danny's family tries to cope with its grief.
