Broadchurch named best television programme of 2013
The popular television series Broadchurch has been celebrated in an annual poll by a leading publication, naming the show as the best on screen in 2013.
Being described as ‘a brilliant piece of home-grown drama’ and ‘a fantastic example of British TV at its best’, it should come as little surprise that Broadchurch was named the best television show in an annual poll by the Radio Times, seeing off US sensation ‘Breaking Bad’ and cookery show ‘The Great British Bake Off’, among a host of others.
Predominantly set at West Bay near Bridport, the show has been a huge success since first airing in March 2013 and has been the subject of acclaim from both fans and critics alike.
With the final episode ending on a cliff-hanger, fans were delighted to hear that the production team are planning to produce a new series, filming for which will begin next year.
A crime drama, it is based around the search for the killer of a young boy called Danny Latimer and stands as a classic example of the ‘whodunit’ mystery. Among the big names in the cast is David Tennant, who plays Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, an experienced detective from the city who moves to Broadchurch in search of the quiet life.
The show also proved popular across the pond in the US, with the Fox Broadcasting Network confirming they will be producing a remake following the popularity of the first series, which first aired in August 2013.
With millions of people tuning in to enjoy the eight-part series, it has helped to bring great levels of tourism to the region as tourists flock to explore the set whilst staying in family hotels in Bournemouth, Weymouth and other popular areas along the Jurassic Coast.
