This is Broadchurch
26 July 2017 | by JohnArmlessSee all my reviews

The third season was completely "off the curve" of what the series was, not in a sense that it was better but far below expectations except for that episode. Compared to season three, this episode was a work of art, everything that was not, and reminds us a lot of the other two seasons.

Mark Latimer, or rather Andrew Buchan, is the commander of this ship,and what he does, we can say is his best role. And he stands out,finally, in the series, while others steal the position of "best acting".

All the composition of the episode, all the focus for the direction where it would like to arrive, everything has been successfully achieved! And that's what Broadchurch stands for, all the acting, soundtrack and photography that have made this series into something amazing.

Too bad the third season was far below the quality it could be.
