Broadchurch had a very limited audience on BBC, Gracepoint will be viewed and enjoyed by a much larger audience and that is a very good thing.

I assume you mean a limited American audience? It was a hit on the BBC in GB. If you are referring to just the USA, I agree.

Its got to be a tough choice for Tenant how to play it...should he stay true to his original portrayal, as if he was doing a performance in a play in a new city? Or should he try to give a fresh interpretation of the role, aimed at an American audience? Seems from the trailer he elected to go with the former. Since he was nearly flawless in the original, its probably the right choice.

It was actually on ITV in GB, not the BBC. It was BBC America in the US.
