An official and original short story to be read after watching the final episode of Broadchurch: Series Two. Containing completely new material not available anywhere else, this is a must-read for all fans of the show.
The final instalment in a collection of eight short stories to run alongside the second series of ITV’s BAFTA award-winning show, Broadchurch. This story will be released at midnight following the broadcast of episode eight.
After the incredible final part of the second series of ‘Broadchurch’, we have Erin Kelly’s short story. We get more Alec Hardy. Who wouldn’t want more Alec Hardy or David Tennant? And this time, Erin Kelly fills in the blanks about Alec and Claire.
The story takes us back to the day before the first series of Broadchurch. Alec has moved to the area and taken Claire with him, hidden away. We know he did this and we know the end result. It is really fascinating seeing Alec’s thoughts and motives. Alec wasn’t keeping her safe. He was playing the waiting game. Keeping his enemies close.
Alec has not met Ellie Miller yet. And the body has not been found on Broadchurch beach. Yet the anticipation is all there.
I recommend Erin Kelly’s book of the first series and all these short stories to true fans of Broadchurch. They have just been brilliant. Erin Kelly captures the mood and the feeling of the series perfectly. I am just grateful a third series has been announced. The pairing of Hardy and Miller must continue. We need more Tennant and Colman on television.
