The ITV murder-mystery drama Broadchurch has been named the Best TV Show of 2013 by the Radio Times.

The Top 10 list, compiled by the UK magazine's writers, saw two Channel 4 shows, The Returned and Educating Yorkshire, in second and third places respectively.

Tim Glanfield, Editor of, said: "The death of event TV has been greatly exaggerated: Broadchurch drew the [British] nation into a collective hysteria every Monday night for eight weeks, as who killed Danny Latimer became the talking point in the press, pubs, front rooms and factories up and down the country."

Glanfield added: "A brilliant piece of homegrown drama with an exquisite cast of actors, Broadchurch is a fantastic example of British TV at its very best."
