Broadchurch: Protection – Erin Kelly

Short Story 4*'s
Short Story

Well another episode of the second series of Broadchurch and once again the focus is as much on what happened to the missing girls in Sandbrook as it was about the ongoing trial. This week the defence had a disappointing day in court when the failure to research the actions of their witness before putting them on the stand.

With a clear link to the TV series this week’s book is a behind the scenes look at Sharon Bishop, the defence lawyer. This short, I still would have preferred these books to be slightly longer, gives us an insight into Sharon’s life outside the court setting. We have seen her visit a prison on-screen, here we find out why. We also get filled in on the history between her and the prosecution barrister, Jocelyn as I’m sure like me you are wondering if this is a straight case of two very competitive women, or whether their history has made this court-room battle an exceptional one.

I am still really enjoying these shorts which give a little more flesh to those characters who have featured strongly in the episode on TV the next morning.
