FAN REACTION: Broadchurch Series 2, Episode 6

On 9th February the sixth episode of the second series of Broadchurch premiered in the UK and Ireland and we asked fans on our Facebook page what they thought of the drama.

Last week, as Miller and Hardy continued their unofficial investigation into the Sandbrook case, new information forced them to re-evaluate the things they believed. Now, Ellie is trying to wrestle back control, while time starts to run out for Alec. Elsewhere, Beth has to face an emotional ordeal alone.

Thanks to all of you who replied, we loved reading all your thoughts and don't forget to join the chat over on our Facebook fan page here.

Please do not read the comments if you have not seen the episode as they contain spoilers.

David tennant.... Fantastic!!! Olivia Coleman... Fantastic!!! Perfect partnership! What a brilliant mind the writer has to come up with all the twists and turns in this series. I just hope there's not a cruel twist for Alec in the end.  to all who play a part in this amazing drama! Thank you ITV for bringing it back for a second series. Pure genius xxx

Rylie Whitchurch 
That was actually more rewarding and slightly less stressful than I expected it to be. Still loads of terrifying moments, and lots of panic, but also some very sweet moments, and lots of rewarding bits.

Ashleigh May Gardner 
I was constantly on the edge of my seat! I've never gasped so much in my life!!! Claire is more involved than we think!!!

Sharon Johnson 
Wasn't sure about the new series, but am now gripped! Think Clare and Lee are the 'Fred and Rose West' of the show...never trusted Clare at all.

Mandy Smith 
Absolutely brilliant. I dont want it to end. It has you hooked from beginning to end. Can't wait for next Monday

im going to need a holiday after this finishes, its so gripping and intense, im exhausted!!

Andrea Simmons 
"I'm alive" and "no more broken heart" is all I wanted to hear from tonight's episode! Let's hope we're not taken down that road with Alec Hardy again anytime soon - he can solve Sandbrook, Miller has the key

Polly Anna 
Brilliant! The flatline sound effect was cruel ... Could easily have ruined my week!!!! On a Monday too!!! Amazing drama! Claire is scary ... I said week one she was involved .... Can't wait for next week! And classic Alec quote "no more broken heart ... All fixed".

Lottie Connor 
I thought Alec died. mini panic attack.

Sarah Melody 
I knew Claire would be more involved. It was great tonight. Desperate to know what's going to happen next. Glad they have fixed Alecs broken heart!

Totally my favourite show on TV right now! Thrilling viewing! I feel all the anger, sadness and the hope in the characters.

Filomena Borba 
Breathless...terrifying... fabulous and rich in all senses... and the acting... oh God...

Claire Minter 
Oh I'm lovin the whole series. Watched the first series again over the weekend, just to refresh my memory. I like the other story going on at the same time, don't know why some people aren't liking it

Ruth Lily Smith 
I love the show, but I don't know if it's just me, but it's getting more and more confusing each week, but that's my opinion.

Mhairi Suzanne 
I feel like I have a heart condition! So tense. Thought Ellie was a goner. How many more episodes are there? Can't cope!!

Samantha Taylor 
Did Joe do it? They are playing this really well. We are almost deliberately being distracted by the Sandbrook case maybe? As usual gripping to watch! Roll on next Monday.

Ruby Gibbs 
Thank you ITV for something worth watching.

Kim Crossman 
Was so worried, I thought Alec was dead, thank god he wasn't! Great story line and love the way everyone seems to be interlinked with each other!

Another enthralling episode, the characters becoming enmeshed in each other's lives. Utterly compelling.

Vicki Cotterell 
Incredibly compelling, poignant, and beautifully acted as always. Top quality TV 

Natasha Layton-Rees 
I'm on the edge of my seat with every episode of Broadchurch,I hope Joe goes down for the murder and I love David Tennant as Alec Hardy.

Emma Ludden 
Plot keeps on twisting delivering more tension each week and the acting is superb...Olivia Coleman's scene with her characters son had me choked and tears in eyes, she is wonderful! Glad the character of Alec is alive to see another day!

Beth Lear 
Ellie and her son scene was bloody brilliant! Brought a tear to my eye and I thought "about bloody time"

Michelle Hague 
Best so far, it just keeps twisting, just as I think I spot a clue, something else makes me change my mind. Best written and acted drama since the last series.
