My thoughts

This is a short read that accompanies the first episode of the second series of the phenomenal ITV series Broadchurch. The book focuses on Ellie, who in episode one is clearly having a hard time adjusting to her new life.

Erin Kelly has done a remarkable job in getting to the heart of Ellie’s current situation. Ellie is back on the beat and is clearly struggling with life, without Joe. Olivia Colman was a joy to watch in episode one, playing Ellie so beautifully and making us all love her even more. I hope she gets a BAFTA for her performance. I was completely in awe of her. Erin Kelly brings that amazing performance and adds a new dimension to it. I could really empathise with her.

This is a lovely quick read. It made me LONG for the next episode of ‘Broadchurch’. It left me wanting more Ellie. Roll on Monday 9pm ITV.


About Northern Crime

Reviewer with a mind of her own. This is a collection of book reviews, which started in 2014. Mostly crime and odd other genres thrown in. Some I loved. Some I loathed. You get the picture.

    I’ve just watched it (football, as usual!) and thought it was great – REALLY looking forward to next week, like you…The Guardian does a good weekly review of the show, if you want to check it out…remind me Christine who’s the bald guy again? Beth’s brother?! And the husband had a one night stand with the blond one who’s going out with the rev (they should get all ministers to look like that, would improve church attendance no end!) And who’s the boy the husband was playing FIFA with in the caravan? Weird or what?!

    I cannot WAIT for next week to see where it goes next. At last something on TV, I actually want to watch. All that Sandbrook stuff has so much potential.
    The bald guy- do you mean Nige, who works with Mark Latimer (Danny’s Dad)? The blonde one is Becca Fisher, who seems to be dating Rev bloke who used to be in Doctor Who, Paul. I always think of him as Rev though. And he is lovely!! I’m with you on that one.
    The boy who Mark Latimer was playing some FIFA computer games with was Ellie’s son, Tom Miller. I think its quite significant as Joe Miller used to meet up secretly with Danny Latimer. Its creepy and not very appropriate. Why would Mark do that? Ellie is now estranged from her son and Tom is quite vulnerable.

      The only possible explanation I could think of is that it reminds him of playing FIFA with his own son – but why the secrecy, if it’s so innocent? Worrying…v worrying..And the bald guy, Nige, yes he’s the one, is he related to Beth or Mark? I’ve forgotten so much detail from the two years – nearly – it’s been off! Be v curious to see what the US version looks like.

      • Christine says:

        Could be innocent. But I think there is more to it. I wonder what Mark is thinking of…Nige and Mark work together in Mark’s plumbing business. They are sort of best mates too.
        You should read the book version. It’s got masses of Sandbrook references in it. I’ve read it a few times and seen the tv version a few *ahem* times too.
        I bet the US version is rubbish. It doesn’t have Olivia Colman in it for starters.

  3. It was an amazing episode! I might try one of these books. In fact, this one. My worry is that the rest of the series is going to stretch plausibility.

    • Christine says:

      Have you read it yet, Rebecca? I’m not too worried about this season of Broadchurch. I could happily watch Colman and Tennant over and over, just chatting.
