Netflix Crime Shows: Broadchurch
Release Year: 2013
Created by Chris Chibnall
Starring Olivia Colman, David Tennant
Broadchurch is an emotional series that leaves you drained after watching the episodes because of the dark and heavy subject matter. The first season begins with the mysterious murder of 11-year old boy Danny on the beach and the officers in charge of the investigation are Alec Hardy (Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Colman) whose son was best friends with the deceased.
The police are able to rule out suicide but they have a hard time ruling out anything else when it comes to finding Danny’s killer among the rest of the residents of the small, close-knit coastal town.
Season 1 keeps you guessing the entire time and just when you think you have the mystery figured out, you have the rug swept out from underneath your feet and you don’t know what to believe.
