Broadchurch final episode: Independent readers vote Joe Miller prime suspect


Joe Miller has been voted the prime Broadchurch suspect by Independent readers.

Forty four per cent of the 1,600 readers who took The Independent’s “whodunit” poll thought Ellie Miller’s husband Joe was the most likely suspect, with Joe and Ellie’s son Tom as the second most popular suspect, pulling in 21 per cent of votes.

Rev Paul Coates came third with a trailing 6 per cent, followed by Will Mellor’s psychic character Steve Connelly at 4 per cent.

Journalist Karen White is the least suspected character, with no votes cast in her name. Only 1 per cent of readers think Beth Latimer, Susan Wright or newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe could be the killer.

Ladbrokes’ odds confirm that Joe Miller is the prime suspect with odds of 4/6, followed by Tom Miller in second with 3/1 and Rev Paul Coates third with 6/1.

Broadchurch producer Richard Stokes tweeted this morning: “#Broadchurch tonight- don’t miss the beginning and please watch to the very, very end” causing speculation that the murderer could possibly be revealed after the credits.

The final episode of Broadchurch airs tonight, Monday 22 April, at 9pm on ITV.
