After last week’s surprising, shocking and horrific events, we know who’ll be missing from ep8.

However - there are still so many questions that require answers! Not least where Atika sits with everything that has happened.

Watch: The Paring Knife 9:00pm BBCTwo

There are few spoilers in the previews this week:

Choices…

In parallel: yet another example of HugoBlick’s extraordinary story-telling.

Hi! My name is Ephra. Today I’ll mostly be having a nervous breakdown and running away from it all. What’s your alibi?

Fantastic! I’ve always admired an educated woman.

aww… I think she loves him too..

One of the most ambitious costume dramas in recent years, this painstakingly recreates 17th-century London – then sets it alight. As every schoolchild knows, a fire began in a bakery in Pudding Lane in 1666 and ravaged great swathes of the City. The fabled culprit – baker Thomas Farriner – is played by Andrew Buchan (The Honourable Woman, Broadchurch), while Daniel Mays (Mrs Biggs) is diarist Samuel Pepys.
 The Great Fire was written by ITV’s political correspondent Tom Bradby, in a bold departure from his day job. Or is it? “The challenges aren’t so very different from our own,” he tells RT. “People in power still get confronted by whether they’re going to take decisions on the basis of pragmatism or principle – and that’s a daily feature of my working life.”

Promo for The Great Fire in this week’s RadioTimes!

I reckon that’s the ninth time this year that Andrew has featured in Radio Times magazine/website. :)

The performances by Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andy Buchan, David Tennant and … well, all of them, were so convincing that when it came to writing the characters’ inner monologues I just sat down to watch the DVD and felt like I was taking dictation. I very rarely had to second-guess at motivation or thought process.

Erin Kelly - on writing the *Broadchurch* novel - now published.

..although I stayed true to my brief not to hint at what happens next, at the 11th hour, Chris (Chibnall) inserted a tiny ‘Easter Egg’ into the novels first few pages; it’s a mere detail, an anomaly really, but one that the eagle-eyed Broadchurch fans will pounce on. I can’t wait to see what they make of it.

So! There’s a hint of what’s to come in s2….  can’t wait!!!

Why did you tell her?

Are you trying to ruin my marriage?

No, you can’t go.

       It was all my fault.

       I took her to Gaza….

       I’ve kept so many lies.

       You and I.

       We are one.

omg… Atika knows how to turn Ephra round

The Honourable Woman: It’s all looking very ominous
after last week’s (ep6) discoveries and revelations.
This comment from The Guardian blog says it all:
[X] I’ve got to say that Andrew Buchan really won me over this week. Ephra hasn’t been the most sympathetic character thus far, he’s had the air of a blunderer or a guy wading into things he can’t control because he wants to play at being a spy (or, as Nessa skewered him with last night, their father), but his dual showdowns with Nessa and Rachel were fantastic to watch and did bring me around to his way of thinking. “I got them out” is going to be his epitaph, because the certainty that doing so was the right thing to do is basically all he has left now, and despite everything that pushing over that domino has led to - he is right, he did get them out (both the soldier and Nessa/Atika) and nobody else was coming for them. Last week you got the sense of him doing what he did with the Israeli soldier because he wanted to sit at the grown-up’s table, but last night’s sequence in the garden, interrupting him just playing with his girls, spoke to a far more human motivation. Short-sighted, yes, but ultimately the right thing to do?
Watch ep7 The Hollow Wall tonight at 9:00pm on BBCTwo

Secrets are weird. People think you share them, but you don’t. They have two sides: Either you own them or they own you
This sequence reminded me immediately of this.
I’m sure the gesticulations were all there!

rookheeya:

Garrow suddenly turns to a less than honest witness and says, “Blast your eyes, you damned bitch!”
The courtroom is aghast at his sudden abuse of a woman until in the next breath he explains he is merely recounting an insult she’s supposed to have suffered from the defendant.
I love it when Garrow is playful, mischievous and deadly in court all at once.
