What really makes the show worth watching is the combination of Mr. Tennant and Ms. Colman, even if what they’re doing is shtick we’ve seen before. Hardy is troubled, taciturn, pre-emptory, bad with people (and Mr. Tennant refuses to make him likeable). Miller is warm, talky, sympathetic. Wariness and petulance progress — helped by a Season 1 tragedy in Miller’s life — to understanding and comfort, although Miller still rolls her eyes a lot and Hardy still barks “Miller!” as if she’s a recalcitrant puppy.- New York Times  Broadchurch season three premieres on BBC America Wednesday June 28th
