* HollywoodLaw: The trial in series 2 has by the broadcast of the second episode been criticised for its great inaccuracy, mostly to increase the drama. Most glaringly multiple witnesses sit in the audience of the murder trial, but the defence bullies Mrs Latimer and Ellie to an extent that would be severely reprimanded in real life, and [[spoiler: the killer's confession is dismissed far too easily]].

Several British viewers even went out of their way to assure fans in other countries that this is ''not'' in any way how the British legal system works.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: The defense lawyers in Series 2, who bizarrely appear to be positively gleeful about the prospect of making a clearly guilty man a KarmaHoudini. It also seriously doesn't help that the entire trial is absurdly slanted in their favor, with the judge allowing them to go off on all kinds of wild speculations without a shred of evidence at the same time the prosecution is constantly admonished to stick to the facts.

* SilentScapegoat: Hardy takes the blame for allowing the Sandbrook killer to walk, even though it was actually a DS working under him who had screwed up. [[spoiler: The reason he took the blame was because the DS in question was his wife; she'd allowed evidence to be compromised because she had been meeting her lover, and Hardy didn't want his daughter to know about her mother's infidelity.]]
* TakeThat: To the Daily Mail - it's the ''last'' newspaper Ollie applies for.

Broadchurch is a 2013 8-part {{ITV}} DetectiveDrama, starring Creator/DavidTennant and Olivia Colman. 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.

Behind the scenes, the show seems to be a bit of an unofficial Series/DoctorWho reunion - in addition to Tennant, the show also features [[Creator/ArthurDarvill Arthur Darvill]] (Rory), Creatory/EveMyles (Gwen from Series/{{Torchwood}}) and several others (including Colman) who have guest starred on Doctor Who, and is written by Chris Chibnall (now confirmed as the new showrunner for "Doctor Who" beginning with series 11 in 2018) and directed by Euros Lyn.
