Can anyone tell me why Ellie says about Will Mellor's character:
"if you go into the bookshop in town all his books are in there"? he is KNOWN to the police for this, plus the petty convictions, vehicle theft and conspiracy to defraud, they say in EP 4. So why is he allowed to write and sell these books?
I know Tim - I want to be shocked next week ! I am hoping I am wrong. I am looking forward to finding out what Ellie's sister saw, power cut mystery, what happened in Whitby 15 years ago, why had Hardy 'been there before', why Hardy was having childhood flashbacks....
gah! I'm not going to get all these answered. Am I ?
Hm, I'm questioning it now. Danny was definitely in that montage, and there was a girl too, but I think there was also another brief shot of another boy, and I was trying to work out whether it was just Danny from a funny angle.
in a dream sequence at teh begining of episode 6 (I think) David tennant's character is shouting at: Will Mellor, Danny's dad, The Vicar and Nige 'Stay away from the water' as they all stand there in the waves.
Are these the four main suspects in his mind?
Or is he dreaming about something that happened to him at that spot 15 years earlier?
Ellie said 'If you go into the bookshop in town, all those books are in there', not 'all his books are in there'. She meant there are lots of books by people just wanting to cash in on murders, not specifically by Steve. I think Susan knows more than she told the police. Who takes home and keeps the skateboard of a murdered child? She said she didn't want to be involved but she stole a piece of key evidence. And why did she give it to Tom? We thought the boy who wasn't Danny in the flashback/montage bits was a young Alec, and the girl was either his wife when she was young or the Sandbrook victim. I would love to know what Lucy saw, or if she was just lying to get money out of Ellie. Wikipedia says Dean has dangerous connections, including some of the most respected people in town. I think Chloe got the drugs off him. When Ellie questioned Becca on the drugs, she said Chloe got them off a male friend, but wouldn't say who. I reckon it's Dean.
I thought Joe went paintballing but it was Tom, Danny, Nige, Mark and Ollie. In march. Ollie said it was probably the last time he spent any time with Danny and that he has photos of the day. So did Danny and Tom fall out in March/April? because of something that happened on that day?
Oh, and I also agree that Alec had some water-related trauma when he was in Broadchurch before. In episode 3, when they discover Danny's blood on Mark's boat, he says he doesn't like being on the water and looks all tense. Paul says the fight between Tom and Danny was a couple of months ago, so March/April sounds about right actually.
RE Will Mellor. have listened/watched again and you are right, it does sound like she says "in two weeks he'll talk to the press, in six months he'll write a book 'how i solved the Broadchurch murder, if you go into the bookshop in town all those books are in there'.
I read on twitter that the deleted text messages were from March, not the night of the murder, so IF that is the case (and I haven't seen a screenshot to confirm it), does this all hinge on something that happened that weekend paintballing?
