#Broadchurch: Your 140 character reviews of ITV's new drama starring David Tennant
Twitter was well and truly singing the praises of Broadchurch last night, even bordering on gushing. People where delighted to see David Tennant and Olivia Colman back on the box and thought the drama was emotive, well paced and beautifully shot.
The Twitter consensus was it fared better than Mayday over on BBC1, produced by the same production company Kudos that brought us Spooks, Hustle and Life on Mars. But there was talk that it took too much inspiration from series one of The Killing.
The portrayal of the local newspaper in this Broadchurch program is woeful. For a start, it has staff. For a second, they're buying coffee— The subeditor (@subedited) March 4, 2013
It happens so rarely that a drama pulls you in and punches you in the face repeatedly in the first fifteen minutes. Good Lord. #Broadchurch—p Adam Mills (@AdamMillsUK) March 4, 2013
