Trivia

Gracepoint is a ten-episode series whereas Broadchurch, the British show it is based on, was eight-episodes. The reason for the extra two episodes is because Broadchurch was originally created to be ten episodes long. However the British network ITV would only commission eight episodes, forcing the creators to cut two episodes. Fox allowed the creators free choice over how many episodes Gracepoint would be, so they chose to restore the missing two episodes. See more »

Fantastic Production Values
4 October 2014 | by journalist1See all my reviews

No, the show isn't Broadchurch and never could be, it is not set in England. Having got that out of the way I believe the show has real promise with the proviso that Anna Gunn improves and settles into her part.

Tennant of course is superb as usual; however, the real stars of the show is the script, production and direction, all are of unusually high quality; take for example the scene when the Danny's mom is stuck in her car during the traffic jam, she hears that they've found a body....she jumps out of the car and the camera pans to and holds on her son's discarded lunch box, just awesome. The episode is full of classy little scenes like that which drags the show above competitors and I believe will set it among the very best of 2014's American TV drama. Well done Fox!
