Broadchurch topped the Twitter TV leaderboard last night with 29,552 tweets about the fifth episode.
BBC’s Jonathan Creek, scheduled in the rival 9pm slot, attracted 1 million more viewers but had 10,000 less tweets, according to social media TV analysts Second Sync.
Many of you seemed relieved by your feeds that you had chosen to watch Tennant and Colman over Creek and Smith.
Beth’s line “come near my family again and I’ll break your f***ing face in” proved the favourite among tweeters this week, while most of you thought Jack Marshall’s death was suicide not murder.
So predictable #Broadchurch. Filch is dead. Olivia's hubby done it I reckon. Or the boy. The boy knows.— Alice Blundell (@AliceRBlundell) April 1, 2013
My money's on the jumped up sexually active 15 year old crack mule having a pop at Filch for shagging a minor #broadchurch—p Michelle Simpson (@shelliemma) April 1, 2013
More upset by jacks death than I was Danny's #Broadchurch—p Rhianna Louise(@rhiannalouisexo) April 1, 2013
Interesting study of the law's difficulty in defining pedophilia and its subsequent sensationalism in the press. Moving episode #broadchurch—p Mark Leatham (@thetyperewriter) April 1, 2013
Or let's blame Mark for the affair instead of Becca. Much more modern, etcetc. #broadchurch—p Cicci Lönnström (@azouraslazuli) April 2, 2013
This girl actually refused David Tennant. Like how do you not want that tall lanky body on you? #broadchurch—p Crystal Friedman (@crystalfriedman) April 2, 2013
the Grandma on #broadchurch reminded me of the people declaring Zizek (fascist) and the ludicrous critique of Ranciere...— sdv_duras (@sdv_duras) April 1, 2013
Anyone else getting tired of #Broadchurch? Going on too long, and many flaws in the storyline!— Terry Prior (@ElTele) April 2, 2013
