Alec James Hardy (previously Detective Inspector Alec Hardy) leads the Wessex Police investigation into the murder of Danny Latimer. He also took the blame for a case failing previously in Sandbrook.
He is known to suffer from severe health problems, of which he did not inform his superiors, and was relieved of his duties at the end of the series by the Chief Medical Officer. He had an up and down friendship with his colleague DS Ellie Miller, who even invited Hardy around for dinner with her husband Joe Miller.
Hardy is a recent arrival in Broadchurch, having fled big city life for a small-town fresh start.

When 11-year-old Danny Latimer turns up dead on the beach, Hardy knows he’s facing another tough case, but this time he’s determined to get it right.
