David Tennant! David Tennant! On American television! Yay!!!

In case you haven’t been paying attention to all the crazy pilot news happening this week, David’s new show Gracepoint just got picked up by Fox. The miniseries is based on the amazing British murder mystery show Broadchurch, which David also starred in.

Sadly, he does not get to use his Scottish accent or his Doctor Who accent for Gracepoint. Instead he’s going full American. Which is kind of fun. 

Sure he needs to work on it, but still. I believe this is technically his first outing as a main lead on American television. I remember when he tried with the pilot Rex Is Not Your Lawyer. It didn’t get picked up, but it was fun to watch him act right after Doctor Who.

And these photos from the set of Gracepoint are making me excited. I wonder how closely the show is going to follow Broadchurch. The trailer seems pretty much like a shot for shot remake (see below), so now I need to know if it’s the same killer! I won’t say who it was. You’re gonna have to watch the show to find out.
