Maybe a procedural series with tinges of mystery like NCIS isn’t quite your cup of tea. For the less eager viewer, quantity over quality can wear thin. (Don’t worry, we’re not dragging NCIS, just 22+ episode counts.) But there are plenty of other crime dramas full of mystery that are quicker and more serialized, like the award-winning British hit Broadchurch.

Broadchurch takes place in the fictional English town and centers on detectives Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) as they investigate the death of a local 11-year-old boy. The family of the young boy deals with the grief and media attention surrounding the case, while the following two seasons continue to track their lives while Hardy and Miller tackle new cases.

Honestly, there’s not much to not love here for loyal fans of crime and mystery genres. First of all, Broadchurch boasts once of the most incredible casts you will ever find, led by Doctor Who alum David Tennant and Academy Award winner and star of The Crown Olivia Colman. For a mystery series that will keep you on edge and enthralled for its entire 24-episode run, make sure to add Broadchurch to your watch list.
