Broadchurch: the story so far

David Tennant and Olivia Colman return to the ITV drama tomorrow evening but first, here's everything you need to know about series one

It’s nearly here, the day TV viewers across the country have been patiently awaiting. Broadchurch is back tomorrow (yes, tomorrow!) and for fans of series one, it’s been a date marked in our diaries since mid-December. But for those of you yet to peruse the first season of ITV’s award-winning drama, you’ve got mere hours to cram in eight suspenseful episodes. 


It’s a tall order and – while we highly recommend series one, the Radio Times critics’ TV show of 2013 – there’s a handy solution for those without the time or energy to play catch up. 

ITV have packaged up a handy, four-minute summary of the twists, turns and dramatic conclusion to the 2013 run to bring you right up to date – or provide a necessary memory jog – ahead of series two’s premiere tomorrow evening.

But do not, we repeat DO NOT, watch this if you don’t want the entirety of season one spoiled. You have been warned…


Broadchurch series two premieres on Monday 5th January at 9:00pm on ITV
