Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Broadchurch revolves around the death of an 11-year-old boy, but there's no blood and only a few brief shots of the body. That said, you will hear some unbleeped swearing (mostly "s--t") and other salty terms like "piss off" and "hell." All other iffy content is mostly described rather than shown: several characters are involved in illegal drug-dealing, and two characters are having an affair.

Sexual Content

Two characters, one of whom is married, are having an affair.


Violence is implied with the dead body of an 11-year-old boy, but it's a bloodless crime.


Some audible swearing (mainly "s--t"). Other terms include "piss off," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

While the detectives' quest for the truth is a constant, so is the prevailing sense that the small town of Broadchurch -- a seemingly idyllic place -- is teeming with secrets. On the plus side, justice is ultimately served.
