An exchange about mackerel got too intense for Broadchurch viewers


Only a fool lies about mackerel in their freezer…

Somehow, crime drama Broadchurch seems to be getting more and more intense.

Episode five of the third season of the ITV show was, yet again, full of shocking twists, turns and, well, red herrings.

Like when Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller were interviewing Aaron Mayford – who knew some questioning about mackerel would get so intense?

The whole scene had viewers asking all the big questions…

Of course, people just couldn’t resist saying this…

When a show has people discussing fishing this intensely, you know it’s got to be good.
