Re: Broadchurch (Spoilers!)

I'm sure we will find out about Daisy sooner or later, Chris Chibnall certainly wouldn't open that door and then not deliver any answers.
And I agree, episode 4 was wonderful. Even more beautiful and funny scenes with Alec and Ellie - they really behave like an old married couple. It's a highlight for me to watch Ellie make fun of Alec and to see Alec's grumpy reactions.

I only wish there'd be the possibility for another season... I already know for sure that I'll crave for more once season 3 is over.

Re: Broadchurch (Spoilers!)

Solar "forced" me to write something in here... so here I am.

Really enjoyed S3 so far. I'm glad that they were able to keep the atmosphere which I really love about that show. This time not choosing a murder for the case is something different and shows that it nevertheless can be very thrilling.
What can I say about Ellie and Alec? Just love them. How they interact with each other... just funny but also serious, when it comes to a point which needs it. 
Yes, Solar, they are like an old married couple.

Re: Broadchurch (Spoilers!)

I watched all three seasons over the past few weeks (maybe the past month? It seems to have gone by quickly, watching a couple episodes a night on Netflix). I thought season 2 was the weakest, and in some ways season 1, I think, is still the best one. I thought the way Alec and Ellie discussed things at the end providing great nuance to the story, which I felt kind of got trampled on in season 2.
I also thought season 3 did a really good job (based on what I know about those kinds of crimes/situations) in handling the topic of sexual assault. I also liked how when the showed the crime playing out, they showed enough to explain and know what happens, without actually showing Trish getting knocked out or assaulted.
I enjoyed seeing David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker in much more serious roles than when they play the Doctor.
And, of course, I echo was everyone else has said in the thread. Ellie and Alec are great characters and I love the way they interact with each other. Ellie is definitely my favourite character in the whole series, too.
Clueing for looks.
