Top Pick


Broadchurch

(BBC America, 10 p.m.)


BBC America is premi√®ring this murder mystery series just in time to cash in on the Doctor Who-fever induced by the recent (and rather elaborate) announcement that Peter Calpadi will portray the 12th Doctor. While this ensemble drama about two detectives trying to solve a young boy’s murder in the sleepy small town of Broadchurch doesn’t share many plot points with the sci-fi show about a time traveling alien, it does features several Who alum (including Arthur Darvill and David Tennant) and was created by a former Who writer (Chris Chibnall). The show, which partners up Tennant with Olivia Colman, was a huge ratings success when it aired in the UK and Fox is planning to create an American version in 2014. Alasdair Wilkins will try to solve the mystery, count the Doctor Who references, and report back on David Tennant’s hair.
