broadchurch culprit

Postby scullion » April 17th, 2017, 1:23 pm

my partner thinks it's 'jim' (with a backup of david tennant)
i think it's the husband, 'ian' (with a backup of the vicar - or olivia coleman's 'son' as an outside curve-ball).

The taxi driver is the shiftiest, but his wife finding all his 'trophies' at the end of last week's episode probably means he's just one of the red herrings! :D

Would the writer dare make it Lenny Henry's character?

I'm a couple of episodes behind, I will binge watch later this week

Going by typecasting, Ian, as he's played by Charlie Higson, who always seems very pleasant on panel games etc. but wrote a thriller so violent I couldn't read it, and I don't do squeamish :o

i think the 'trophies' are probably things that have just been left in the taxi rather than a sort of 'memento mori'.
are you saying that you think it's lenny?

i'd avoid this thread until after you've watched them then, sue, as i'm sure there'll be a spoiler here tonight!

According to the Today programme no preview copies have been issued to TV critics so that there can be no spoilers.

Anyone watching Line of Duty?

I think he's been shown to have the strongest motives so far, but I can't see it being him in the end.

I change my mind several times an episode! At the moment I reckon it's 'JIm'! :o

It's strange that the creepy guy who was in prison for a rape hasn't had anymore scenes, also, what about the empty cottage near the rape scene, and why did Trish say she saw a bright light.....and I'm sure the scent of vodka was important.

Yes, I'm watching Line of Duty, and am totally confused so far, but I think the acting in it is stunning.

Splendid final episode, an aspect of Agatha Christie's dictum that the culprit need not be obvious but must be in plain sight.
Is it my imagination or was David Tennant's accent getting more and more Scots throughout the series.

It's a pity they wasted the last 15 minutes on all the maudlin 'how will the community survive?' gubbins (particularly getting all the major characters into church, which seems unrealistic), but the revelation was a nice twist.

I enjoyed it too ... I hadn't been able to watch it last night, and was very cautious that I might inadvertently see or hear a plot spoiler today .. so glad I didn't.

And also caught up with last Sunday's Line of Duty ... Another thrilling series and I agree, brilliant acting ! Another one that could go either way :scared: :tu:

I've seen it now

Very well worked out, but agree with Suelle, could have switched off during the final ad break

it was an 'interesting' choice of both the workplace and surname of the culprit. both are/have been prominent in the real location.
