British crime drama Broadchurch has been named the best TV show of 2013 by Radio Times critics.
Starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman as the lead actors of an ensemble cast, the drama follows the story of a police investigation into the murder of a schoolboy in a small Dorset coastal town.
Broadchurch aired on ITV early this year, the series creator Chris Chibnall described the show to the channel as "a labor of love". The beautifully crafted whodunit captured the imagination of the nation as almost every character became a suspect across eight rollercoaster weeks.
Both a critical and popular hit, the show attracted around nine million viewers an episode on ITV and is now being remade for the US audience by FOX under the title Gracepoint.
Last year the critics’ choice was won by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman crime drama Sherlock, which returns to Indian television on 3 January on AXN.
A second series of Broadchurch is expected to air on ITV sometime in 2014.
