who killed danny ?????

Now over here in Sweden are we watching the British TV-series, “Broadchurch” – in my book one of the best TV-series for a very long time. And UK makes many good series and I have plenty US favorites too. Broadcasted on British ITV, 4th of March 2013.

The story is about a young boy found murdered on the beach at a beautiful costal town in South England and the impact it has on the community. The first series is on 8 episodes and they have promised there will be a second series to follow.

The Fox Broadcasting Network announced that they would produce a remake of “Broadchurch” for US audiences to air in the 2014-15 seasons.

Series creator Chris Chibnall described the project as a labour of love.
The location of the series was partly inspired by the fact that he lived near the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. 2011, The series was filmed between August and November 2012, predominantly on the Jurassic Coast at West Bay in Dorset, with the town of Clevedon just outside Bristol doubling as the fictional town of Broadchurch.

The secrecy surrounding the conclusion of the series was well-noted; only four cast members knew the identity of the murderer during filming. The complete series of Broadchurch was released on DVD by Acorn Media UK on 20 May 2013.

Series cast
Olivia Colmanv … DS Ellie Miller
David Tennant … DI Alec Hardy
Jodie Whittaker … Beth Latimer
Andrew Buchan … Mark Latimer
Adam Wilson … Tom Miller
Charlotte Beaumont … Chloe Latimer
Jonathan Bailey … Olly Stevens
Arthur Darvill … Rev. Paul Coates
Matthew Gravelle … Joe Miller
Carolyn Pickles … Maggie Radcliffe
Pauline Quirke … Susan Wright
Joe Sims … Nige Carter
David Bradley … Jack Marshall
Oskar McNamara … Danny Latimer

“DS Ellie Miller is expecting to be promoted but when eleven year old Danny Latimer is found murdered on the beach it is thought that somebody with more experience is needed. That person is DI Alec Hardy; he has experience with such a crime but as the prosecution failed in that case he may be a liability. Broadchurch isn’t the sort of town where such things happen and everybody is shaken; it is also the sort of town where everybody seems to know everybody else but as the case progresses it emerges that many people have secrets and as they are exposed lives will be changed forever.

Plenty of suspects emerge; the Danny’s father lies about where he was that night, the leader of the Sea Cadets has a conviction for underage sex, a woman living near the beach has Danny’s skateboard and DS Miller’s own son quickly deleted his correspondence with Danny as soon as he learnt his friend was dead to name but a few.”

Of course it’s also about beautiful music,
Ólafur Arnalds (born 1986) is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Mosfellsbær, Iceland have created the stunning soundtrack to the series. Ólafur got a big breakthrough when his track “Brotsjór” was featured on “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 8. His song “Til Enda” was used in a trailer for a 2012 film Looper, starring Bruce Willis. He has also soundtracks for Jitters (2010) and Another Happy Day (2011).

It’s popularity has seen it sold to networks in 32 countries. In USA it has been broadcasted on BBC America. When witting this we have still 3 more episodes to watch. So I don’t know who the killer is.

A fantastic story line that raise new questions after every episode and outstanding acting. It’s a crime series with a heart.

    • Yes, I’m so glad I started watching it …. but the build up before it was released … was massive too. We Swedes are hooked on it now.
      UK makes fantastic truthworthy TV-series.

      • I’m not sure if it was released in Germany yet or if they are even going to but the internet was full of this show and it’s amazing. Granted, I only started watching because of David Tennant but holy cow! The UK really does make amazing TV shows.

      • I’m not a Dr Who fan …. but he is brilliant in this series and Olivia Colmanv is even better. Normal Swedish TV channels are not that quick to buy new series, but on this one they did.

    • Madhu, I hope that you will be able to see the British version, because US always put too much Hollywood into their remakes.
      It such down to earth series and it happens far too often thoose days to families all over the world. Plus it’s impossible to guess who the killer is. The acting is outstanding too.
      I just saw that US have made a remake of the Danish TV-serie “The Bridge” – also a brilliant crime series. It’s well received in US as one of the best TV series of the year.

  1. I followed Broadchurch religiously, absolutely amazing – the way a murder affects society, how secrets come out – it was definitely one of the best serials here. I can’t wait for season 2! The killer was so unexpected!


    • I have my guesses … but it will be very interesting to see if I’m right. Lot of guilty behaving characters.
      It’s an absolutely brilliant show. And I think that is what happens in a small place if something like this happens, everybody is looking for blame in everybody and every stone will be turned. Far too often does this happen in real life all over the world, that children get murdered.
      And what I like about it … is there is no physical violence.

    • Mary, thank you so much … nothing from the doctor yet – and no change neither, but so long as I have my “lucky pills” I will have some comfort.
      Flying to NYC on Saturday .. that will be an experience for my butt. *smile
      Thanks for your concern and carting, so sweet.

  2. We liked the look of this but never got around to watching this when it was on in the UK but might have to invest in the box set for winter if there’s going to be a follow-on. Good luck with your flight on Saturday x

    • I love the music too … very interesting, but so is the show and I’m sure that you will be hooked on it too .. haven’t heard anyone that not raving about it. Soon Thursday when I can see another episode.

  3. Love this music, Viveka.

    I really braced when I clicked on this post ‘Who Killed Danny?’ because I’ve just come off Prenin’s page and he has a link about the Polish woman and her partner who starved to death, beat and tortured her son, Daniel. I have literally been crying.

    It is so, so painful, being on this earth and witness to such as that, and on the same earth as such. I really am upset by it. But re this, the music is lovely. Hope you’re well, Viveka 🙂

    • How terrible … it least my Danny was a fiction and the last episode tonight. There is so much shit going on out there all over the world … abuse against children. I don’t understand how people can hurt a child, animal or another person. I can’t just get my head around it. There isn’t pushiment hard enough for people that abuse and kill children, in my book. Same with war, all the kids that suffers.
