Vote Broadchurch As Best Mystery In The Inaugural Yahoo TV Awards

Image
Yahoo TV have this year launched the Yahooies! - their own awards to honour the best of the 014-15 TV season, decided by you, the viewer.

Voting in the category of Best Mystery is now open and one of the nominees is Broadchurch, the greatly acclaimed ITV drama starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman.

Yahoo say:


Season 2 of Broadchurch gave us two mysteries: Could a man we all saw confess to killing 11-year-old Danny Latimer at the end of Season 1 actually get off? And who killed Pippa and Lisa, the cousins at the centre of the Sandbrook case, which had originally given DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) his heart condition? Over the course of eight skillfully-scripted, beautifully-edited episodes, choices Hardy and DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) had made in Season 1 — the consequences of which viewers had never even thought to consider — came back to bite them, and the Sandbrook investigation proved that you don’t need a town of suspects to keep viewers guessing, just three (an estranged hu…
