A new theory of "Relateeveety" for Toobworld....
Beth Latimer, 'Broadchurch'
MacKenzie McHale, 'The Newsroom'
Beth Latimer, wife of Mark and mother of Chloe and the late Danny, was Beth Ropley before she married. (Her mother, Liz Ropley, stayed with them during those difficult weeks after the tragedy.)
So I think MacKenzie's mother was a Ropley and that her mother and Beth's father were brother and sister. Beth was raised along the Dorset coast but Mac was raised in the United States during the time her father was the British Ambassador to America.
Beth is played by Jody Whitaker and Mac is played by Emily Mortimer.
