David Tennant Brings Broadchurch to America

David Tennant attending the UK premiere of "The Pirates! In An Adventure with Scientists" held in the Crystal Room, May Fair Hotel, LondonThe final episode of the BBC’s Broadchurch left audiences reeling on both sides of the Atlantic. I am personally still experiencing minor effects of PTSD from the series. If you haven’t watched it, you should. It is beautifully filmed, well written, and fantastically acted.

Just know that Broadchurch’s investigation into a child’s murder does not have a happy ending. In fact, it ends quite hideously.

Here in the states, we can’t get enough police procedurals. Fox’s adaptation of Broadchurch will air during the 2014-2015 television season.

Fans will be happy to hear that David Tennant has joined the cast of the American version of the show.

Fans will be sad to hear that David Tennant will use an American accent for the show, reducing his appeal to American women by at least half.

But we’ll see. We have high hopes for the adaptation of the show. Tennant has proven his acting chops over and over. He recently won an Emmy for his voice work on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and will soon (I’M COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS) reprise his role as the 10th Doctor on the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.

The U.K. Broadchurch has been picked up for another season. David Tennant’s return to the role of D.I. Alec Hardy, while expected, has not been confirmed.
