DVD - 2017
Average Rating:
Rate this:
The final season in the trilogy starts three years on from the last season, and five years on from the start. There is a bold, new crime story, which forces residents to ask themselves whether the town has a crack running through it caused by Danny Latimer₂s death, is this new crime somehow the long-term legacy of that dark moment? The central characters must contend with this possibility as they battle to make hope, friendship, and love triumph over fear and suspicion.

Very well done. Linked to earlier events, tense with multiple suspects with secrets of their own.

So good!

I think this is probably my favorite of all the British/European police shows I have watched. I include seasons 1 and 2 with this comment also. I am very sorry to see the series end. Great plots, great acting, with all the same cast in all 3 series. There is a twist here, a turn there. I think the 3 Broadchurch series are the Downton Abbey of British cop shows. I for sure recommend that you watch Seasons 1 and 2 before watching this series. In fact, the American version of Broadchurch season 1, Gracepoint, was good also as David Tennant played the same role as he plays here.

One thing especially realistic about this entire series is that the lead detectives did not go all kissy-kissy with each other and have a cool romantic relationship. They went about the business of solving the crime. That was refreshing given all the dating and longing gazes that go on between the characters in so many of these series.

A good, unpredictable story!
The ending was not very believable, but stranger things happen in real-life cases!
It is fascinating and novel how we are introduced to a number of possible suspects, get to know them, their families, and their lives! A certain, welcome realism!

This series is not as good as the First one! Still, it has a great cast and several interesting characters! A watchable, fascinating film!
Do watch the Bonus section, also!

Great series with characters that are real. First two seasons are on Netflix.

Season 3 is not as good as the first two seasons but still watchable. I found the story in this season not very plausible but still it kept my interest.

Great series. Sorry to see it end.

I think this was my favorite season! The characters are so very developed now. The back-and-forth between Hardy and Miller is fabulous- these are two actors at the very top of their game! Cinematically it is a lovely production. The subject matter is dark but there is a 'humanity' that is often lacking in crime drama.

The intensity of the first three episodes made me think this season was going to be the best of the lot. Then there was a gradual decline, a pattern that all police procedurals find a hard time escaping. The big reveal in the final episode felt distinctly rushed, and there was certainly an element of implausibility to it. All of that said, let's remember that this has been a terrific series. The cast was universally good, and Olivia Coleman was amazing: she is just a wonderful actress. And while I find the ever-brooding David Tennant more of an acquired taste, at least he did not have to shout so much this time round. We binge-watched it over a very entertaining weekend. Too bad ITV will not be bringing 'Hardy' and 'Miller' back for a fourth season. Don't miss it.

Another mystery where the conclusion is just too unpredictable. Also, it is unfortunate that most victims of sexual assault do not receive this sympathetic treatment by the police.

Sexual Content: Sexual assault can be quite disturbing to some in its brutality and subject matter. Not very graphic..
