As we near the climax to series three of Broadchurch, a sneak peek of episode six offers a quiet, emotional scene between Julie Hesmondhalgh’s Trish Winterman and her support worker Beth Latimer (Jodie Whittaker).
Trish – who was subject to a violent sexual attack at the start of the series – is seen at home, in the middle of the night, calling Beth for reassurance. “I feel like I’m sinking,” she tells her. “I hate myself. I don’t want to be in my body, I don’t want to be in my head.”
The exchange – a pared-down, intimate conversation compared with the theatrics we imagine are taking place between Mark Latimer and Joe Miller – ends with Beth admitting to Trish that what’s happened to her is not fair.
Broadchurch continues next Monday at 9pm on ITV
