My thoughts

After last night’s episode, comes Erin Kelly’s lovely short read. This time we get more detail on Jocelyn. Jocelyn is the QC and is prosecuting Joe Miller in court.

I read this quickly on the bus this morning and just loved it.

It is one of my favourites of the series so far, including the Ellie Miller story. Jocelyn Knight is a bit of an enigma. It is great to get insight into what makes her tick and get her past history in Broadchurch. I can see why she returns to Broadchurch and how the events in series one would have impacted on her. I understand now why she took the case. I really like her, more so after Erin Kelly has weaved her magical touch. No spoilers obviously.

This is worth a read for all of you Broadchurch addicts out there. Jocelyn’s story is a good one!!!


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.

    Any clue in it re her and Maggie? Were they a couple? I’ve just watched last night’s episode, and am catching up on Spiral too. I seem to miss stuff if I don’t have my Radio Times to tell me what’s on! And I so need to get up to speed with my reviews – I’ve got a pile of books with reviews half-written – or not started at all. Still, at least I’m getting plenty of reading done!

      No nothing specific. It hinted they were friends in the past. It just said something like Maggie and Jocelyn weren’t in touch any more. So that could be proof they were a couple and weren’t speaking now. Or something had happened to them. Like a big falling out. Or a break-up.

      I miss stuff all the time. I know that ‘Wolf Hall’ starts tomorrow.

      The reading is the important bit, Linda!!!

        Oh yes, Wolf Hall, thanks for the reminder! That’ll be a tough sell to Mr Crimeworm, though, featuring as it does “old fashioned clothes”, which is his name for costume dramas – although I might be able to sell it to him on the “based on actual historical events” line; he likes history. I’ll think of something! I’ve got the book but never read it, have you? – so many people seemed to struggle with it, I was put off. Though I might dig it out, what with the series starting. I also want to watch something called – I think – Missing on ITV player, don’t know when exactly it was on but it was recently and starred Joanne Froggatt of Downton. She’s great.

    Tell Mr Crimeworm it has the ginger one from Homelands in it. I love Damian Lewis, almost as much as David Tennant. I’m not one for costume dramas much these days. I saw far too many in the 90s. But I want to see Wolf Hall and the remake of Poldark.

    I’ve not read Wolf Hall. Think it might be on my kindle. And I’ve never heard of Missing. I must pay more attention to what is on telly.
