Is it ok for me to start a new thread.

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?

The extra scene is on YouTube....didn't really think it added anything particularly....

OrlaKiely Tue 23-Apr-13 09:44:14

I didn't like that ending at all. Very disappointing and very unbelievable.

So many things not answered.

And where is the extra scene? I watched it on iplayer and didn't see anything in the credits - apart from the bit that said it'd be back.

Ha! I just posted 30 mins to go on the other thread!
x-post grin

fruitstick Mon 22-Apr-13 20:28:16

Half an hour to go.

You might want to think about moving over to the 'finale thread' gringrin

Jenda Mon 22-Apr-13 20:26:14

Madame I'm with you about Joe. All the build up is killing me. I'm so desperate to know but also don't want it to end!

MadameJosephine Mon 22-Apr-13 20:12:21

Oh and my money is on Joe, I've been saying it for weeks now although I've wavered a bit since he's become the bookies favourite

MadameJosephine Mon 22-Apr-13 20:10:31

Oooooh less than an hour to go now. I am loving these threads - probably as much as the programme itself! I'm so glad I'm not the only one looking forward to it. This morning when I woke up I said to DP 'only 14 hours till broadchurch' and he thought I was nuts grin

Jossysgiants Mon 22-Apr-13 20:07:54

Have jumped over from other thread to enjoy the mounting excitement.

Me too chippychop. You aren't in my book group are you? :-)
Sticking with Ollie. It's to do with the paintball weekend. Nige is involved too. < brilliantly formed theory>

gazzalw Mon 22-Apr-13 18:50:45

I think maybe it could be Ollie's boss but only because she really seems like a rank outsider and therefore totally overlooked. Would have no idea why though unless she just wants a big story for her local paper - seems rather extreme though....

Have read all this thread and amazed at the insights of all of you - wow. You could give the CID a run for their money! grin.

OrlaKiely Mon 22-Apr-13 18:49:07

Oh...if they were from March then maybe not.

OrlaKiely Mon 22-Apr-13 18:46:49

Guys can anyone remember about the text messages...was it something like they were from Danny at 3.40 am? So after he was killed? So, from whoever killed him and had his phone?

If so this would mean Tom knows who did it.

Chip this article says that Ollie's mum will be part of the big reveal.

Chipstick10 Mon 22-Apr-13 16:31:18

I'm undecided about ollie. What was his mum going to tell Ellie.? We never got a conclusion. The more I think about ollie the more I am not convinced of his innocence.

Chippychop Mon 22-Apr-13 16:23:51

AIBU I've just told a fib to get out of something tonight so I can stay in and watch!!!!

Ujjayi Mon 22-Apr-13 15:46:28

Eeek!! Only 5 more hours grin Still no idea who it is what done it though <<clueless>>

DH has a theory it will spin off to a second series and we'll be none the wiser angry

WreckfestAtTiffanys Mon 22-Apr-13 12:47:19

Oh, just read Fraggle's theory on the finale thread.

I now think it's Chloe

<fickle>

WreckfestAtTiffanys Mon 22-Apr-13 12:29:45

I just can't go with it being Tom, or with the accident/cover up idea. It doesn't fit.

I think there will be a whole bit of story that we have got lots of tiny peeks of, but haven't realise they tie together iyswim? And I think it will be Ollie.

There are lots of open ends pointing to him that haven't been talked about much.

I am going to end up sitting here desperate for it to start all day...must remember to feed the kids grin

teejwood Mon 22-Apr-13 12:10:18

Oh - and I think the cleaning will turn out to be important. On t'other thread I wondered if Susan smoked so many cigs beside the body because she was cleaning it. I wondered if she cleaned the hut and the boat as well, in order to remove any evidence of Nige (when she thought this might bond them together once he realised that she was willing to protect him).

However, Nige also cleans up after Mark and Beth and no doubt Joe cleans up after Tom and Ellie - so the cleaning clue can be used for Nige, Mark or Joe!
confused

9 hours...

teejwood Mon 22-Apr-13 11:58:33

The BBC4 Saturday 9pm slot is heaven - love all of them, including Spiral grin <goes misty-eyed remembering the first (Danish) Killing thread on here>

I don't normally watch much on ITV, and not a huge amount of telly overall, but this has been well worth tuning in.

My vote is still with Nige as the killer, but I'm probably wrong as everyone seems to be saying Joe or Mark!

Today, it struck me that surely the PC might have lost Nige but another PC would still have been watching Susan. So they must report back that Nige was there threatening her? I'm also assuming she had been told not to leave town, so Hardy will want her picked up and brought back into the station if it looks like she's leaving. So I don't think we've seen or heard the last of her at all.

However, Ellie is 100% in for a shocker about her own family tonight. She will not be left unscathed nomatter how this turns out.

fruitstick Mon 22-Apr-13 11:46:53

I'm coming round to Mark again.

As much as I've always thought it was Ollie, his story would be too much to squeeze into last ep.

Mark's alibi was done & dusted by ep 2 which means it might make a comeback.

AuntieMaggie Mon 22-Apr-13 11:33:04

Mark.

If it is Tom I'm going to be disappointed!

SomewhereInTheMiddle Mon 22-Apr-13 11:06:24

You're welcome Orla - definitely buy The Killing on dvd, you won't regret it!

Just read this www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/10006839/Is-Broadchurch-just-like-The-Killing.html

Lokks like there won't be a second series. sad

OrlaKiely Mon 22-Apr-13 10:46:28

Thanks for the tip, Somewhere smile and the recommendations.

I don't have the facilities to record it but might buy the series on DVD, then I could watch and rewind etc.

2 for Tom
1 for Joe
1 for Mark
