Trivia

Fox originally planned to cast an all-new all-American cast for Gracepoint, using none of the actors from the British original. However they allowed David Tennant to audition for the role of Carver (the role based on the role he played in Broadchurch) and he "blew away the competition" winning the role over all the American actors who also auditioned for Carver, even though Tennant had auditioned in an accent that was not his own.

Intelligent & entertaining; Please renew for second season
12 December 2014 | by agardsmithSee all my reviews

I enjoyed Gracepoint for several reasons. The performances by the actors were engaging. The score excelled at bringing to the surface the subliminal emotional responses. The cinematography and editing was reminiscent of Hitchcock; beautiful and haunting, calm wilderness juxtaposed with terrifying urbane landscapes. I watched Gracepoint because it was great story telling. I would rather watch the retelling of an excellent story I have not heard than spend one second watching any of the swill called "reality television". I certainly hope this series is renewed for a second season. It was scheduled against Thursday night football and Scandal, which made it a ratings orphan from the start. Then there was the professional critics who reviewed it after only one or two episodes and found it lacking because it was so similar to the BBC incarnation of the year before. I am surprised they would be so harsh to have an "American" version of a series praised so highly. One would think they would encourage better shows however they originate so we can stop being assaulted by the moronic programs currently offered. For example, do these professional critics really think Gracepoint was inferior to new shows like 'Selfie' or 'A to Z' or almost any reality show. Please, do not let the moderate ratings of this first season allow this show to leave the American airwaves. It has thoughtful writing on the human condition. It is a very good police procedural series. Give it time to flourish with the current cast, crew and writers.
