Gracepoint starts to diverge from the source material
23 October 2014 | by Pipkin_SweetgrassSee all my reviews

The last ten minutes blew me away! Now Gracepoint begins it's divergence from Broadchurch and I'm loving it! Gracepoint delves further into the characters, lending them more depth and making them multifaceted, therefore more realistic.

When I first heard about Gracepoint my initial reaction was very negative because I'm such a fan of Broadchurch. Then I found out the original writer, Chris Chibnall as well as the original Director, James Strong was involved. Once I found out David Tennant was involved that was it. I am very familiar with Mr. Tennant. He is massively talented -- he didn't get that seat on the Board of Directors for the Royal Shakespeare Company on his looks--I knew in my gut to give Gracepoint a chance. Then I found out Anna Gunn was involved along with Nick Nolte, and that Euros Lyn and David Petrarca (Game of Thrones) was in directing as well. Producers Futterman and Goldwyn topped it off, and then I find out Grammy winning Marty Beller wrote the score.

Gracepoint has met and exceeded my expectations, remaining true to the source material while adding more depth to the characters as well as additional characters; one of them being quite a surprise to me though she has yet to make her appearance. Add to that different plot twists,a different killer/ending and an appropriately American feel and I am more than happy, but that still isn't enough praise: Tennant has given Carver a different feel as a character. His Hardy was more emo. Carver is more sharp, harder, more defensive and at times offensive, yet we still get glimpses of a broken and wounded soul. Tennant delivers a sterling performance and is one of the few actors I've seen who can emote with his eyes only, as though the viewer is reading his mind. He had the same voice coach as Meryl Streep, and his accent is quite good. He and Gunn are a fearsomely good duo, the screen interaction is quite sparky. In some ways Gracepoint has surpassed Broadchurch. The forensics are much more realistic: Broadchurch had the killer remove all evidence with a spritz bottle and household cleaner with a paper towel which would *never* remove that much evidence. Also Carver's treatment for his illness is much more realistic. Pills would never work quickly enough for someone in that much distress. This show is so good that I hope that it, like its source material will get a season 2. Tennant has said that should that be the case, Carver's story ends up in such a different place than Hardy's story that the show will truly become a different show. I'm praying to the TV gods that there will be a Gracepoint 2!
