The first season of Broadchurch was a well acted, tightly scripted must-see murder mystery.
The second season picks up right where the first one left off.
With confessed killer Joe Miller on trial for the murder of Danny Latimer, season two brings forth the British legal system. Old rivalries are reborn. Old wounds are reopened. New secrets are revealed.
Plus, we get to find out about the case that sent DI Alec Hardy to Broadchurch in the first place.
There are a lot of threads in play and, at only eight episodes, the writing has to be crisp and precise to pull it off.
The good news? The writing is up to the task.
Season two of Broadchurch is 8 episodes (less than seven hours) of must watch television if you are a fan of the first season, BBC programming or just good old fashioned crime drama.
David Tennant and Olivia Coleman are once again up to the challenge as Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller. This season's new additions, James D'Arcy and Eve Miles, bring a sinister presence to the series. And Charlotte Rampling is great as Jocelyn King, the barrister in charge of Miller's prosecution.
Broadchurch Season Two delivers on every possible level.
