Awards for Broadchurch

Exceptionally striking... It's among the best detective shows - and perhaps even among the best dramas - in several years. It will break your heart and keep you guessing all the way through. WASHINGTON POST

Broadchurch has received over 40 award nominations, winning 25 awards.

These included four BAFTAs, including the award for Best Drama Series, and the prestigious Peabody Award for the show's “ distinguished and meritorious contribution to excellence in quality television. ”


Chibnall has made something quite special here; a delicate portrait of extreme, unbearable sadness, layered with guilt, suspicion and recrimination. Do not miss because this is about as good as TV drama gets.
