* TrappedByMountainLions: Mark, Paul and Maggie all have minor subplots in Series 3 with no connection to the case that drives the series, clearly just to keep the actors in the cast ([[spoiler:Mark tracks down Joe and tries to kill himself, Paul is in a rut because church attendance has gone down after it increased in the wake of Danny's murder, and Maggie struggles with her the new owner of her magazine's tasteless approach to journalism]]).

A second 8-episode series aired in 2015, dealing with the revelations and fallout from the first one, along with presenting a new mystery from Hardy's past.

Behind the scenes, the show seems to be a bit of an unofficial ''Series/DoctorWho'' reunion - in addition to Tennant (the Tenth Doctor), the show also features Arthur Darvill (Rory), Creator/EveMyles (Gwen from ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'') and several other actors (including Colman) who have guest starred on ''Doctor Who'', plus its writer Chris Chibnall (co-producer and head writer of ''Torchwood''[='s=] first two series) was later confirmed as the new showrunner for ''Doctor Who'' beginning with series 11 in 2018, and Jodie Whittaker was later cast as the Thirteenth Doctor, to start at the same date as Chibnall.

A huge hit for ITV, it has been renewed for a third series. Fox aired an [[CulturalTranslation American adaptation]] of the series, titled ''Series/{{Gracepoint}}'', with David Tennant reprising the role of the lead detective (though oddly enough, he's also one of the few characters whose name was changed) alongside Anna Gunn as his partner, with Michael Pena, Nick Nolte, and Jacki Weaver among the supporting cast.

''Broadchurch'' is a 2013 8-part Creator/{{ITV}} DetectiveDrama, starring Creator/DavidTennant and Creator/OliviaColman. In the eponymous town, 11-year old boy Danny Latimer is found dead. Recently arrived DI Alec Hardy (Tennant) leads the investigation, with the assistance of DS Ellie Miller (Colman) - despite her resentment that Hardy got the promotion that she felt was rightfully hers while on holiday. As they dig into the goings on at the apparently quiet seaside town, a lot of skeletons start falling out of closets.
