Television A-C Trivia Questions

1. The first series of crime drama series 'Broadchurch' followed the investigation of the murder of a young boy in the small (fictional) seaside town of Broadchurch. Which actors played the investigating detectives, DI Alec Hardy and DS Ellie Miller?

From Quiz
'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: David Tennant and Olivia Colman

Hardy and Miller had a rocky start to their working relationship as Miller had expected promotion to the post of Detective Inspector on her return from maternity leave. However, she returned to the police station to discover that a decidedly grumpy Scottish bloke named Alec Hardy had taken her job. David Tennant is probably best known for his role as the tenth version of the Doctor, in the long-running BBC sci-fi show, 'Doctor Who'. Olivia Colman is a British comedy actress whose TV credits include 'The Peep Show' and 'Green Wing'. She also appeared in the film 'The Iron Lady' as Margaret Thatcher's daughter, Carol. Andrew Buchan and Jodie Whittaker played Mark and Beth Latimer, the parents of the murdered boy. Nathaniel Parker and Sharon Small played DI Tommy Lynley and DS Barbara Havers in the TV series 'The Inspector Lynley Mysteries'. Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes played DCI Gene Hunt and DI Alex Drake in the science fiction/crime show 'Ashes to Ashes'.

From Quiz 'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: On the beach, at the bottom of the cliffs

Danny's body was discovered on the beach the morning after his death. Although the body had been arranged to look like Danny had fallen from the cliff, forensic evidence soon showed that it was not a tragic accident and that he had in fact been strangled. Danny's mother, Beth, had spent part of the morning searching for her son after discovering he had failed to turn up for his school sports day. She saw the commotion on the beach and went over, only to see her son's body lying there. The cliff-top summer house, the abandoned boat and the local Sea Brigade hall are all significant locations or clues in the murder case.

From Quiz 'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: Susan Wright

Susan Wright lived in a caravan park near the beach and was the caretaker of the cliff-top summer house where Danny's murder took place. She was a loner who spent most of her time walking her dog around the town, but threatened the editor of the local newspaper when she discovered and threatened to publish her dark secret. It turned out that her real name was Elaine Jones and that she was the biological mother of murder suspect, Nigel Carter. Wright was portrayed by Pauline Quirke, who is best known for her role as Sharon in the BBC sitcom 'Birds of a Feather', which first aired in 1989.

9. Mark Latimer lied to police about his whereabouts on the night his son was murdered because he didn't want his wife to discover he was having an affair with which woman?

From Quiz 'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: Becca Fisher

Becca Fisher was the Australian owner of the Traders Hotel where DI Hardy lived throughout the events of the first series of 'Broadchurch'. She was portrayed by the actress Simone McAullay, who also appeared in the popular Australian soap opera 'Home and Away'. Danny Latimer's father, Mark, gave the police a completely unbelievable explanation of his whereabouts on the night of his son's murder, leading Hardy and Miller to suspect that he was involved. He was in fact with Becca Fisher at the time, but refused to tell the truth in case his wife, Beth, discovered his infidelity. Sadly for him this was a waste of time as Beth had followed him and seen him kissing Becca anyway. Maggie Radcliffe was the editor of the local newspaper; Karen White was a national newspaper journalist who came to Broadchurch to report on the murder; and Lucy Stevens was the mother of local journalist Olly Stevens (and the sister of DS Ellie Miller - one of the investigating police officers).

From Quiz 'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: Sex with a minor

Jack Marshall's painful history, including a conviction for having sex with a minor, was exposed in episode four of the series. The people of Broadchurch were extremely quick to judge him, with false stories about his inappropriate behaviour with young boys soon published in the local paper. Jack refused police help with the harassment he was suffering and instead ended up committing suicide by jumping off a cliff - the same one under which Danny Latimer's body had been found. The sad part of the whole story was that Jack's conviction was actually for under age sex with a teenage girl. She had later married him and they had a son together. The couple divorced after their son was killed in a car accident.

In the early episodes of the series small hints were dropped to the audience that all was not well with Hardy's health, however the severity of his condition did not become clear until he collapsed in his bathroom at the Traders Hotel after having dinner with Ellie and Joe Miller. Keen to hide his health problems from his colleagues, he checked himself out of hospital and headed back to his desk - despite looking distinctly unwell! However, when Hardy collapsed with a heart attack while chasing a suspect he could no longer hide his condition. His boss gave him 24 hours to solve the case before being invalided out of the police service - luckily he managed it.

From Quiz 'Broadchurch' - Series 1

Answer: Sandbrook

Alec Hardy transferred to Broadchurch following his failure to solve a similar child murder in Sandbrook. The case still haunted DI Hardy as Karen White, a journalist from a national newspaper, came to Broadchurch with the express purpose of exposing what she saw as Hardy's incompetence following Sandbrook. Karen also persuaded Beth Latimer to meet the mother of one of the girls who was murdered in the Sandbrook case - an experience which Beth soon regretted. Hardy eventually gave local journalists, Maggie and Olly, the exclusive story of the truth behind Sandbrook. Although he had been blamed for losing the evidence that meant the Sandbrook killer walked free, it turned out that he was covering up for his ex-wife. She had actually lost the evidence while having an affair with a colleague. Hardy took the blame in order to ensure their daughter didn't find out about her mother's affair. 'Gracepoint' is the name of a US adaptation of 'Broadchurch', also starring David Tennant. West Bay, Dorset and Clevedon, Somerset were two of the key locations where major parts of 'Broadchurch' were filmed.
