Broadchurch season 2, episode 1 recap: Things fall apartů again
Broadchurch series two eases back into its investigation with clockwork-precise plotting and characteristically strong performances.season episode your how
Series two of this award-winning series is already offering more questions than answers, and has us all speculating about whether they were right the first time round. The first episode picks up seamlessly where we left off, showing the devastating aftermath for the community rocked by the murder of year-old Danny Latimer. Series two kicks off with the day of the hearing and the main characters are all brought together in the court room. DI Miller is working in Devon and not coping well having lost her son, who moved to stay with relatives. She appears to be paying the price for this murder over and above her husband. Suddenly all eyes are on Joe Miller as he walks into the dock. Then it happens.
The eight-episode series focused on the continuing fallout of the murder of year-old Danny Latimer in the fictional, close-knit coastal town of Broadchurch in Dorset , England. The series focuses on the effect of Joe Miller's trial on his wife, former DS Ellie Miller now a uniformed police officer in Devon ; the Latimer family's struggle to achieve a normal life during Joe's trial; and new revelations that former DI Alec Hardy is protecting a witness in the failed Sandbrook child murder case. Although Broadchurch was conceived as a trilogy, the second series was only announced on 22 April as series one ended.

I needed one after the first fifteen minutes of the second series of Broadchurch, which began on ITV tonight. If you thought things had been tied up neatly in a bow at the end of the first series, when Joe Miller Matthew Gravelle told police he had killed Danny Latimer, then think again. As the whole town piled into a court to hear Joe admit his guilt in front of a judge, he turned the tables, pleading not guilty to the murder. Meanwhile, DI Alec Hardy David Tennant is still in Broadchurch, living in a riverside hut, and is still taking pills for his dodgy heart. As well as dealing with his impending death from heart failure, a prerequisite for any maverick cop on TV these days, Hardy is trying to protect Claire Ripley Eve Miles , a witness from his fateful botched Sandbrook case in which a young girl was killed. Lock your riverside hut, man! On hearing this revelation, Miller, quite rightly, calls her old boss a naughty word.
Yay, Broadchurch is back! This will turn our detective drama into a courtroom one, with two formidable barristers: Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Charlotte Rampling. I can already see the tears and screams on the witness stand now. Also new: So, Hardy had Claire socked away in an idyllic sea cottage all last season, did he? That seems a wee bit tacked-on, since we never had a hint of it before. But we need a new mystery for season two, and Hardy is overdue to solve Sandbrook, the case that has haunted his career and ruined his health. Everything has been stripped from her: her home; her job; her family, except for little Fred; and her only crime was ignorance.
Bodies and revelations are unearthed in the second season premiere. The season premiere of Broadchurch is about digging: digging into the past, and, quite literally, digging up a body. The body? But metaphorical bodies are also being unearthed as the British mystery returned. When season 1 came to a close, it seemed so certain that Joe Miller was the culprit, but now he has pleaded not guilty, reducing the town of Broadchurch to shambles again.
