Broadchurch Series 3, Episode 2 by Chris Chibnall (2017)

The second episode of Broadchurch 3 wastes no time in launching us into Hardy and Miller’s investigation into the brutal rape of Trish Winterman we saw reported to the police in last week’s premiere.

Offering up a range of new characters and suspects to keep us – and the police – guessing, it’s an effective and tense bit of drama that isn’t afraid to pause for breath and quieter, more intimate moments – and ends on a disturbing text message being sent to Trish telling her to “shut up or else”, a moment that surely made every viewer’s skin crawl.
