Not too long ago we learned David Tennant will be reprising his role as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy in Fox's Broadchurch remake (he'll also be playing an American). Now two more have been added to the cast, including Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn. While I'm not kean on Tennant playing an American in this remake, it seems to make sense considering the show's location. And that also means a name change for the series.
The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor DancesThe ITV series Broadchurch just recently wrapped here in the U.S. on BBC America. While we're already curious as to where Season 2 will take us, we've been blindsided by an American remake. Normally we'd scoff at such a notion but as it turns out, they've nabbed David Tennant to reprise his role as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy. Just one hiccup - Tennant will be flexing his American accent this time around.

Fair warning, there's nothing about time or space travel in this trailer, in fact, it's pretty heavy crime material. The reason we're posting the trailer for the eight-part drama series Broadchurch is because it stars Doctor Who actors David Tennant and Arthur Darvill. Technically it stars another Doctor Who actor, Olivia Colman (and well, probably more because tons of British actors have been on the show), but I'm gonna go ahead and make a while assumption and say many will tune in for the two fellas. The series will air on BBC America later this year. (via Deadline) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
BBC America Acquires the Rights to Broadchurch, Starring Ten and Rory Williams. I Mean David Tennant and Arthur Darvill. Sorry.
Hello SweetieIf you live in the UK you already knew you'd get the chance to see Broadchurch, a miniseries about "the events and investigation that unfold in a small coastal town after the murder of a young boy," a bit later this year. And now we've found out that it's been picked up by BBC America to air in the States as well. Why is that news relevant to our American readers? Only because Doctor Who's David Tennant and Arthur Darvill are both in it. We thought you'd like to know.
