Broadchurch is a British crime series written for television that is set in a fictional village in Dorset, in the United Kingdom. It revolves around the mysterious and gruesome death of an eleven year old boy, and how this event affects the village's close-knit community. Factors like grief, suspicion amongst the townspeople and the sudden media attention for the town all play a big part in the telling of the story of Broadchurch. One thing that stands out in regard to this series is the large extent to which the production crew went to keep the identity of the murderer a secret until the very end. Even most of the actors did not know who it was up until a few hours before recording the final episodes. Broadchurch has been the recipient of numerous awards, including several BAFTA's and a BAFTA Craft Award.
