David Tennant recently starred in an American remake of Broadchurch called Gracepoint. Broadcasting on Fox, the series sees the Doctor Who actor star alongside Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn. Despite clearly having a strong cast, plus the same writer and director as the original, Gracepoint has gone down no where near as well as its UK counterpart. Many viewers have put the Fox shows lack of success down to a questionable US accent on Tennant’s part. With all this in mind, there was still talk in the Mirror of ITV airing Gracepoint in the UK.
