Broadchurch Ep 3: So many questions…


So, the news is out.

And the (ex) husband can’t remember what happened.

And who sent Trish that threatening text messages and the flowers at night? What kind of person does that?

I can’t say I believe it was the ex-husband, as Broadchurch love springing surprises on us, and it seems a bit too obvious. And honestly, who would have guessed the first series’ killer would be the copper’s husband?

Trish and her ex have both confessed to having argued before it happened, and clearly her ex ( for the life of me, I can’t remember his name) isn’t dealing with the new girlfriend/separation very well.

I was waiting to see if and when Trish would find out who Beth was. I believe her honesty will help Trish in the long run but her words ‘it never goes away’ and she has carried on for Danny, were touching.

The shop owner (Lenny Henry) appears to have a temper on him, and I think he is telling the truth, to an extent…

But it can’t be the cabbie? Can it? He’s a liar and a cheat, yes, and I couldn’t help but want to reach into the television, give this wife  big cwtch and tell he she needs to leave him! For her and her son’s sake!

And we heard out that Alec disappeared for 2 years (yes it was to be with his family, a noble thing to do) and despite their love-hate relationships, I was surprised to hear he hadn’t even called Ellie in that time. Come on, surely she’s a friend and a colleague after everything?


And what was that on Tom’s phone? Something tells me it’s local people on that video, local people who shouldn’t be anywhere near each other. Possibly the same thing as on the laptop of the ex-husbands?

Ellie is right, the net is widening, doesn’t seem to be narrowing down enough to pick out main suspects. Too many people are hiding what they did and where they really were that night…

Sooo many questions from tonight, I’m really going to have to start writing them all down.







Broadchurch ep 2: Everyone has a secret..

So we’re only on episode 2,  but with more than a few looks from some shifty characters, at this point it could be anyone..!



Granted this one wasn’t as powerful as the first episode, but we’ve learnt a lot more and we’re introduced to more characters, adding to this series’ plot.

The ex husband (though they’re not divorced) is definitely hiding something and her friend Kath’s husband (can’t remember his name) is acting strangely too.. by surely it’s too obvious to be one of them?!?

And who is Lenny Henry’s character?

Is he important? and how is his relationship with his daughter, the annoying junior police officer who is reallly annoying Ellie and well, me too, if I’m honest.

Miller and Alec are back in their usual love-hate relationship, but appear to be on the right tracks.

And it turns out Trish really is hiding something.. my guess is she’s been about town and is keeping quiet in fear of what the police might think..

It’s hard to see Mark still struggling to come to terms with Danny’s death or the fact that justice wasn’t served and Joe Miller is out there, living his life, and Danny’s was cruelly taken away at just 11-years-old.

And of course, the news that Maggie would have to relocate to keep her reporting job, was horribly too close to home.

Unfortunately this seems to be happening all over the country, staff redundancies, lack of resources, real local stories being dumped for clickbait nonsense.. *sigh*

My housemate seems certain that Reverend Rory (we like Dr Who), is his name Paul in this?

Anyway, she seems sure he has something to do with it, given how empty the church is on Sunday mornings, and people only turn to him during their dark days…

But I refuse to believe he has anything to do with it.

So who could it be? Well, I’m still stumped, thought that doesn’t stop my mind from wondering

Until next week I guess..




Today I am one of those.

Maybe I shouldn’t buy my coffee here, but damnit I do like it, and I do support local places, and don’t particularly favour this place…

But, I need to calm down.

I am reminded of the Sex and the city episode, where main character and all round fabulous but selfish Carrie Bradshaw runs to her nearest store, escaping from her clingy but sweet boyfriend at the time.

She too is on her laptop in a busy cafe, wondering why people have been drawn here, and I find myself doing that too.

I can hear a few languages, some I’ve heard before, and people are mainly sat by themselves like me.

A couple is sat near me and I can feel the glare of the woman one me, so I angle my laptop away from her and turn my screen brightness right down.


(My view of Embankment station ^^)

And that Zayn and Taylor Swift song from 50 SHADES is on, and I find myself singing along, surprised at just how much I know and like this one..


Id love to plug cup the courage to ask people why they are here. Why they have chosen this place, what they’re doing, what they’re thinking…

How nosy of me. But I love people watching. Wondering what their relationship is with each other, where they’re headed and why?

But surely Im not the only one who thinks like this?

I ahem stumbled across this by author Simon Sinek:

“Starbucks was founded around the experience and the environment of their stores. Starbucks was about a space with comfortable chairs, lots of power outlets, tables and desks at which we could work and the option to spend as much time in their stores as we wanted without any pressure to buy. The coffee was incidental. “

Very true, no?
