    I kind of think they will pretty everyone up for the American version. The Brits are never afraid to have their actors look like regular people.

    That's for sure, they look like regular folk

    True. I should have appended, "if it's fits the role," to the end of my last sentence, but you got my drift.

    Re: Broadchurch on BBC America

    Finally got a chance to watch this series.... wow. It was so emotional, well written and acted. I came away with the moral of do not judge others or you will be judged. I did guess the killer in the 3rd to last episode. There was a look that gave it away. If I would have missed it, I wouldn't have known. Now, the reason was a whole different story, though I should have figured with the foreshadowing of the Susan Wright character. Be interesting to see how the US one does.

    The US one We already know the story and who did it. I am not sure why they are doing it again -odd for me

    I'm probably wrong, but I thought they were changing the story and the perp in the U.S. version. I won't be watching it anyway; I rarely watch U.S. versions of British shows and am always disappointed when I do.

    I read that they plan on changing it up, adding new characters, taking out others... I don't know. If Tennant wasn't involved in it I probably wouldn't watch, but I'll tune in at least the first epi to see if it is worth my time. Its just Broadchurch was so "perfect" as is.

    Looks like BBC's Broadstreet is coming back as Gracepoint on Fox October 2nd. It stars David Tenant and Nick Nolte and is filmed in Victoria, BC.I guess this is for the American audience that didn't see the original. Unfortunately, we already know the ending. Sigh.

    I'm not planning to watch it; I don't enjoy American versions of British shows and I'll wait for the new season of the British show, but I do think they have changed the story and its ending for this American version. At least, I think that's what I read some time ago.

    Well, it does start off with a little dead boy on California beach.
