Episode 6: Broadchurch

Summary

Ellie and Hardy bring a new suspect in for questioning and in a search of this suspect's premises, Ellie finds devastating new evidence linking him to the crime. Back at the station, he gives them his detailed version of events, but when they dig deeper they begin to doubt his story, while DC Katie Harford confronts Ellie and Hardy with an uncomfortable truth about her role in the investigation. The fact that Ian has taken a personal item of Trish's without her knowledge comes to light.

Review

Everyone seems to have inched slowly forward with their lives after the murder of Danny Latimer. But not his dad. Mark is haunted and lost; he dreams of Danny and the man he could never become. Andrew Buchan is heartbreaking as Mark, restlessly looking for peace of mind, hatching schemes, needing revenge, but spinning aimlessly.

His wife Beth (Jodie Whittaker) is moving on, channelling her energy into helping rape victims, particularly Trish Winterman (Julie Hesmondhalgh), who’s struggling to cope. “I feel like I’m sinking… I hate myself and I don’t want to be in my body,” she says in an anguished late-night phone call.

There are dramatic developments in the investigation and disturbing evidence comes to light. But there’s a bit more focus on the lead detectives’ home lives and an interrupted dinner when a furious Ellie Miller sets to work with a hammer.
