BBC America has put episode 1 of Broadchurch up On Demand, and as we reported earlier, a scene was cut where Mark Latimer (Andrew Buchan) and DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) are stopped just before entering the morgue to view Danny Latimer’s body.
It has also been pointed out by Gallifrey Base (via Eides on the DT Forum) that a short scene between DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) has been cut as well. Before the detectives break the news to the victim’s family that it is in fact Danny that was found on the beach, they have a conversation in the car outside the Latimer house. Miller tells Hardy that she wants to be the one to tell the family. He refuses, citing his greater experience with this type of case, and she reluctantly agrees. While the scene doesn’t further the plot much, it does show the dynamic of Hardy and Miller’s relationship at this point. She defers to him, even though she doesn’t agree.
Broadchurch premieres on BBC America on Wednesday 7th August.

Many thanks to Eides on the DT Forum and the lovely fans on Gallifrey Base for the tip.
