Last night I finally decided to watch Broadchurch, the acclaimed and highly talked about, ITV drama, about the murder of a young boy in a small town and the efforts from the police to find the killer.
Let’s just say that I got hooked from the moment they show young Danny on top of that cliff, then, I watched all 8 episodes in a row… Wow, apart from the point that the story is fantastic, the direction is stellar and the writing is off the charts. You get interested in all of the characters, even knowing that one of them is a child killer.
Leading the show is none other than the brilliant David Tennant (and don’t worry, he doesn’t look that good on purpose) and Olivia Colman, who play the two lead investigators on the case. Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Matthew Gravelle, Jonathan Bailey, David Bradley and Arthur Darvill are just some of the actors that compose the great cast. I found David Bradley’s character particularly touching.
Broadchurch will be back for a second season, when it is not yet known. In the meantime, Fox has announced that a remake of the british drama is on the making, with David Tennant reprising his role as DI Hardy in the American drama renamed as Gracepoint. When the first season of Gracepoint and the second of Broadchurch will air is still undetermined, but poor David, he’s going to have a hell of a year!
I’m more than ever a fan of Mr David Tennant and his sexy scottish accent (that causes me to not understand half of what he says….)! Arthur Darvill can be hot even when he’s playing a vicar… damn you Rory Williams!
If you haven’t watched this amazing series yet, go for it! It’s one of the best dramas I ever saw… and I watch a lot of TV! The killer was the last person I would have thought, literally the last person! =| If I hadn’t read all the spoilers before I started to watched the show, I would have been seriously shocked.
