Clive Lucas is arrested after his wife finds keys belonging to Trish and other fares hidden in his garage but then CCTV evidence suggests collusion between Clive's shy, virginal son Michael and the shifty Leo Humphries. A statement from Michael goes some way to unmasking Trish's attacker and a link to the other rapes, closing the case at last. Maggie and Paul now compare positive futures whilst the Wintermans and Latimers also decide on the best way to move forward. Written by don @ minifie-1

This is the final episode of the series. See more »


When Trish talks about remembering somebody calling her name, and recalling feeling an object hitting her, this is not possible. The brain injury caused by physical trauma means that moments or minutes are lost before the hit because the brain is not able to record these events. There is no way that Trish would have remembered somebody calling her name, let alone the feeling of the hit. See more »

Broadchurch Fatigue
19 August 2017 | by uusmythSee all my reviews

What a let down. Tennant lost some of his MoJo and the script writers hit us with a "Come on, let's get to the Wrap Party and end this dog."

Good acting overall, especially Mr. Latimer. but his character couldn't carry this show alone.

RIP Broadchurch. (We will never forget Seasons one and two.)
