Broadchurch - Season 1-3
The critically acclaim, Broadchurch, centers on the investigation into the murder of a young boy in a British seaside town. Leading the investigation are two detectives – the strong yet compassionate local Detective Sergeant, Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman), and the by-the-book Detective Inspector Alec Hardy (David Tennant), Ellie’s newly appointed boss. By circumstance they are partnered to solve the murder, keeping the newspapers from derailing the investigation and trying to prevent the crime from impacting tourism at the beach where the boy was murdered.
Broadchurch: a town in shock, after the revelation of the identity of Danny Latimer’s killer. Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller find themselves drawn back into the case as it goes to court. Ellie, estranged from family and friends, only has Hardy to turn to. But Hardy is a man still haunted by illness and the case he never could solve – Sandbrook. As the trial proceeds, battle lines are drawn: between legal teams, between the residents of the town, and even between family members. Lives will be thrown under the spotlight, and the deepest secrets laid bare for all to see. As Joe Miller’s trial and the Sandbrook case collide, no-one will emerge unscathed.
Ellie and Hardy are called out to attend to a woman who has reported a serious sexual assault. They take the woman - Trish Winterman - to the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) where she is examined. There's no doubt she's been raped - but where, and when, and by whom? Hardy and Ellie tell Trish that an ISVA, (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor) will be in touch soon. This person will help and guide her through the legal and investigative process that will now unfold around her. Working on a clue found at Trish's house, Hardy and Ellie discover the crime scene and call in SOCO to gather evidence. But it is an unusual and difficult crime scene - will they find anything useful? The initial forensics report confirms Hardy and Ellie's earlier suspicions - this was not an opportunistic attack, it was planned. Hardy concludes that they have a serious sexual predator at large in the town, someone who may strike again.
