Today I am reviewing the finale of Broken, a series running on BBC 1. It has taken 5 episodes to get to this point and boy was it worth it!
The plot of this episode followed the struggles of local residents and finally injected some well needed hope. The plot was sad and had scenes of loss, which got me a bit.
Father Micheal had lived with guilt for some time. While he blessed and forgave others on a daily basis, he give himself the same respect. His guilt over Vernon’s death and his doubt in his ability to be a priest was hard to see. I have always been fond of Father Micheal’s character.
Andrew, the peer pressured police officer joined his colleagues in a hearing over Vernon’s death and did what he should have done earlier. I was so proud that he found the strength to tell the truth and get the best outcome for Vernon. Helena found peace over the hearing, yet she was less fond of Father Micheal by the end of it.
We remember the horrible tragedy in the Carmicheal family and understandably Chloe and the family were finding it hard to adjust. The gambling machines had caused grief in many families and revenge looked quite appealing. Seeing Chloe without her mother was heartbreaking, as I can not imagine the pain she was going through!
With all the trouble in their lives, the residents found some peace by the end of the episode. It was especially nice to see the local residents and friends show their support for Father Micheal. The “wonderful priest” surely has more in him yet!
What a series. I adored the acting to Sean Bean and I felt a little teary
No doubt 4 stars!
