Take Our "Broadchurch" Poll About The Second Series So Far

Let's work out whether this series is as good as the last one. Warning: if you haven't seen every single episode of Broadchurch you will come across so many spoilers.

Broadchurch is back and there are MANY questions.

Kudos Film and Television / ITV

So let's try to work out some answers together. Opinions at the ready.

  1. 1. Is Broadchurch just as addictive to watch, now that the show is a courtroom drama and not a murder investigation?

    Yes. It's well written and acted so how can it not be?

    No. It isn't as gripping if we can't work out the killer.

    It's only episode two. I haven't made up my mind.

Of course Joe Miller (Matthew Gravelle) pleading "not guilty" was a crucial plot twist last week.

    He ISN'T responsible for Danny's death and there's something we don't know yet.
  1. 3. Do you really care that much that we are now revisiting Alec Hardy's (David Tennant) previous failed murder case?

Remember this revelation from last week's episode?

    It's totally innocent.

And then there's the fact that Rev. Paul Coates (Arthur Darvill) has visited Joe Miller in prison.

    vote votes
    He is innocently trying to getting him to change his plead from "not guilty" to "guilty". His religion is an influence.
  2.  
    vote votes
    He is trying to get Joe to confess because he himself is hiding something.
  3.  
    vote votes
    I literally don't know.

Joe's confession whilst in custody has been dropped from evidence in court.

Kudos Film and Television / ITV

This is because DCI Miller (Olivia Colman) had attacked him.

  1. 8. What do you think of his confession being dropped?

    It's SO frustrating and it seems a bit of a cop out.

    It's understandable, considering what DCI Miller did in custody.

Remember Susan Wright (Pauline Quirke)?

Kudos Film and Television / ITV

Here's an important question. Where on earth is she?

  1. 9. Do you think it is important that Susan hasn't been seen on screen since the penultimate episode in series one?

    No. Her character is probably just busy in Birds of a Feather.

Finally, let's talk about our favourite journalist Olly.
