Live viewing figures for Broadchurch's 2nd series  first episode have beaten the original programme... by some distance.

Last night 7.6 million of us tuned in, compared with the 6.8 million who watched the first show in 2013.

Creator and lead writer Chris Chibnall's messaged Wessex FM, saying he's pleased and relieved people appear to like the episode.
