Poor Mark.  :(

A very troubled soul.    :(

His anguish seemed beyond healing, but did he really jump or was he beyond that too? Was his imagining himself getting out of the boat and floating away, leaving his son on board, a way of telling us he is indeed gone or----? A torturous wait to find out.

I suspect that Mark really did jump out of the boat, rather than just imagine it.  We just have to wait and see if he drowns or is rescued.  I read one online review of the episode this morning which predicted the ever-reliable Ellie on the high seas, rescuing Mark, wrapping a thermal blanket around him, and pouring him a hot cup of tea from her thermos. It's possible but, to me, there seemed to be finality to Mark's story, which I found very powerful. As Photon said, he was a very troubled soul.

Mark was standing at the edge of the cliff when his vision appeared of him in the boat with Danny then he stepped out of the boat and floated away, leaving Danny alone. The camera then retreated further and further, giving the impression that Mark was floating out to sea. This is what prompted my question. Have I got all that wrong? I still have it on my hard drive. I'll need to look at it again to see the end.

did not pass the pub test for me.

if someone kills your son, you get revenge...then you commit hari krishna.

Drowning is a pretty girlie way to go, if he was called Ophelia, maybe.

      what was the purpose of that sidetrack to the main plot anyway?

  fill in some time, tie up some loose ends? I don't get it

Yes, I see what you mean, Gussy.  As you say, we'll just have to wait until Friday to find out.

My feeling is that is too obvious.  I suspect Trish is his mother and he was given up for adoption at birth, hence his obsession with her.


My money is on the vicar.

It’s the Final Episode of Broadchurch tonight.


Two questions will be answered:

(a) Who is the rapist?

(b) Who will David Tennant yell at?    He’s very good at angry yelling isn’t he.  :roll:

What a pathetic excuse for a human being.

They should lock him up for life!   :mad:

Yes, it was a good ending.  The look of horror and disgust on Ellie's face when interviewing Leo was just priceless.


My rating for Series 3:  4.5 STARS

I agree with your rating Tardy. Do you think the ending (Mark driving away) suggests there might be yet another series for complete resolution?

No, I don't think so.  The writer, Chris Chibnall, is about to be the head writer for Doctor Who, and he has already said that the Broadchurch story has come to an end.  I think that leaving Mark to sort out his life is a good ending because it allows the viewer to imagine how it will be resolved.
