Better than season one, i didn't mean to binge watch but I had to! Suspense. For no reason at all they script many scenes by the sea, and i approve. I couldn't recall everything from season one, and i think it would have helped. Definitely will watch season 3.

Shows how hard it is for anyone to stand up to scrutiny when flaws are the focus. Great drama, performances and suspense.

Re 4/8/17 comment, always appreciate recommendations. Looked up Sunshine Valley, nothing by that name in catalog. Googled, mostly vacation homes, no dvd. Continued and came upon Happy Valley BBC crime drama, placed a hold. Look forward to seeing series 1.

The second series may be available, will suggest purchase. Third series may be broadcast 2018.

10/19/2017 Happy Valley series 1 is great, bingeworthy.

I love this series and want to thank the library for having it..also want to apoligize for people who can't use google to see that DVDs are only out for Series 1and 2 and Series 3 is on UK tele at present time....

When (if ever) will the library bring in the rest of the series? This is an ongoing problem. You get these great British shows, get people hooked, then don't bother with the rest of the series. To name a few - Broadchurch, Sunshine Valley and I could go on but can't be bothered because I don't think whoever is responsible for rectifying this problem, ever read the comments or listen to the librarians who have to listen to the patrons complain.

Charlotte Rampling!!! I had no idea she was in this series! Makes it worth 5 STARS just to have her there!

A continuation of the first season, this time the murderer of the boy goes to trial. Same coastal community of characters with British justice at centerpoint (gray wigs and all), but is it truly justice for those who have suffered loss and grief? Great cast and compelling story. You really want those who lost the boy Danny to receive their justice in a convoluted criminal / legal system. Be sure to watch the first season!

Might be even better than Season 1, if possible.

If you like British crime series you'll love this. Superbly acted and engrossing.

Broadchurch 2 looks beautiful, has a superb cast -- and the writing is as mediocre as in the first one. One innovation: some procedural screw ups in the previous series are used as plot points in this one, so that's something. However, everyone still behaves with the maximum amount of melodrama and unprofessionalism*. Whatever happened to the English stiff upper lip and sense of fair play? Olivia Colman and David Tennant are a detective pair who deserve better. *For example, why does the hotshot prosecuting attorney not bring out the beating of the suspect in court herself, when she knows all about it and the defense will use it to exclude the confession? Idiotic.
