I have been enjoying Gracepoint! And the Scottish accent does slip through now and then. Seeing David Tennant on American TV is fun too! I recently watched a show about Penguins on PBS that he narrated.

I just loved Broadchurch! I was completely riveted all the way through, and the last episode had me in tears! Very much looking forward to Gracepoint, if for no other reason than to see David Tennant. The american accent is a bummer, though.

I just borrowed the Broadchurch DVD set from the library and watched the whole series in two days. Further proof that I love everything David Tennant touches... but also good to see other Doctor Who actors in various roles. Arthur Darvill was fantastic.

I will watch Gracepoint, and I hope it lives up to the original. I hear they will do things differently after the first few episodes - twists and turns to keep us from knowing the outcome.

I'm a new day rising; I'm a brand new sky to hang the stars upon tonight.

I'm learning to walk again. I believe I've waited long enough - where do I begin?

It would be so fun if they let him keep his accent!
Don't know if it is just American remakes - maybe it is just the one you see first that you like best? The first Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was much better, the first Let the Right one in was so much better . . .

I feel the same way about American re-makes but didn't want to say so. But you're American so it's ok for you to say it! ha ha. I liked the American remake of Queer As Folk but otherwise I can't think of any others.

I will give Gracepoint a try though!

I'm not sure how I feel about a remake. Though wouldn't mind seeing Tennant on regular US television. Not going to lie, most times when North America decides to remake something from the UK, it doesn't usually compare.

I love that it was both complex and subtle. I loved the landscapes, the cast and the slow pace of the storytelling.

Did you hear that there's going to be an American re-make? David Tennant is going to play the main detective again, but with an American accent. It's going to be set in the US and called Gracepoint.

I'm getting to this topic a little late, but wow was that a great series! It always made you keep guessing what the next little twist or turn was going to be. I too watched it because of David Tennant. But the whole ensemble was great. Can't wait to see how they do series two!

Just saw the end - so sad. I appreciated how they showed how sad it was for the victims family and the murderers family. Very well done.

I'm at episode 4 and I love this show! It reminds me of the Swedish-Danish crime show, The Bridge. It was on BBC with English subtitles. A whole series to solve one crime, lots of pretty landscape shots, gentle storytelling that's gripping but not agitating. (some American crime shows are so over-stimulating and loud)

The scenery is beautiful! I adore Arthur Darvill. I also really like the Ellie character. That actor played an alien villain in Doctor Who so at first it was weird to see her playing a more compassionate character but now I'm totally into her.

If you like Broadchurch and haven't seen The Bridge yet, I'd recommend it if you can find it!

Same here, initially because of David Tennant (and Arthur Darville was a bonus), but this show is really well done. Fantastic cast all around.

I'm also pretty sure I don't want to live in a small town. If Twin Peaks (back in the day) hadn't "proven" that lots of freaky people live in small towns, Broadchurch clinches it. The bald guy with the crossbow and the poor dog? And the dog's owner? Talk about creepy! LOL

Great to know that there's going to be a season 2. Woohoo!

This is hands down my favorite show right now. I began watching it for David Tennant but the whole cast is amazing. They got picked up for a season 2 in the UK!

I also really love this show - it is odd to see Rory dressed as a priest!

I am really enjoying this series--of course, I've only seen 1 full episode and watching second now.

Anyone else notice that the actor who plays Filch is the one shopkeeper. The other female detective is from The Eleventh Hour (she was the creepy lady with the creepier little girls). Can't wait to see Rory and any other surprises!

I love that David is keeping his normal accent for this show. *sigh* lol
