Believe It! has been shortlisted for the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2015.

ITV are broadcasting a trailer with clips from episode two of Broadchurch. Unfortunately it is not online yet.

Digital Spy titled their review of Broadchurch 'The pinnacle of what TV can accomplish.'

Huffington Post review of Broadchurch concludes with the question 'who saw THAT coming???'

The first episode of Broadchurch Series Two opened with almost one million more viewers than the original series as it received an average audience of 7.3 million (which was 28.9% of the audience share).
This resulted in an overall average of 7.6 million when the ITV+1 viewers were included which gave Broadchurch a 30.1% share of the total audience from 9pm.

The final paragraph of the 4 star review of Broadchurch from The Mirror is 'And so it transpires that the end to last year's mesmerising whodunnit was just the beginning. This is going to be good...'

The Guardian review of Broadchurch includes 'for now the pleasure comes from Tennant and Colmanís scenes together' and concludes with 'Chibnall has gathered enough old loose ends and intriguing new strands to suggest that Mondays may again become a bad night for the nationís pubs and restaurants.'

Daily Mail Broadchurch review concludes with 'For the next two months, the whole country will be agog as one by one the secrets are unravelled.'

Unfortunately neither David Tennant or The Escape Artist made the short list for the National Television Awards.

The Times (behind a paywall) gives Broadchurch a 5 star review and includes the comment 'no star is too big for this now.'

The Telegraph review of Broadchurch concludes with 'Tennant and Olivia Colman were, as ever, terrific. Colman proved that no other actress is as good at utter emotional desolation, while Tennant was in a mercurial mood, reminiscent of his tenure in Doctor Who.
Broadchurch continues to be a rich and complex tapestry which respects the viewerís intelligence and commands you to become an armchair detective. Letís hope the momentum can be maintained.'

BBC Audio Drama Awards 2015 short-list is announced today. Believe It! was nominated in the long-list.
