Well, to be fair, Tennant is using his native Scottish accent!
But please, say it ain't so.
Yeah, I don't get this. I generally don't think too highly of the American public but most 12 year olds managed to read the Harry Potter books without an American version. I think we could mange this.
Still managed to change the Philosopher's Stone into the Sorcerer's Stone for the American audience!!
I still say no way.
Fine, so I'll give Fox a pass if they only change the title of the show. But don't change anything else.
In the words of Supertramp...
Watch premiere online before BBC America debut
Tonight's the night...
So great to see Tennant again.
Does anyone else have the first airings of Broadchurch not marked as "new" in the Tivo guide? I'd set a season pass for "first run only", but last night's premiere wasn't recorded because the guide didn't have it as "new". Luckily, they reaired the episode for me to record.
Pretty typical for a show that aired earlier in another country...
Someone posted a warning in Season Pass Alerts, so I changed my SP to 'first runs and repeats' before last night.
As more and more shows are imported, it becomes more and more important that they do something about this.
Was ITV making a more somber version of Death in Paradise?
Death in Paradise is a detective show which was made by the BBC. It started in 2011, and can be seen on some PBS stations in the US.
The imdb description says:
A detective inspector is transferred from the Met in London to the island of Saint-Marie in the Caribbean.
Tennant's character is also
a detective inspector who has been banished from his home turf
Death in Paradise can sometimes be more humorous than Broadchurch seems to be, because on DiP they play up the cultural differences between the island setting and England.
So I can see where someone, while pitching Broadchurch to a network executive, might say "it's like Death in Paradise, but more serious / much darker".
I'm fully aware of what Death in Paradise is and it bears no similarities beyond being British and being about crime. Broadchurch is much more similar to a broad range of British shows but nowhere near that one.
I'd never heard of DIP. Very good rating on IMDb and it looks like my cup of tea, think I'll give it a try. Thanks for the (unintended) heads up!
We've really enjoyed it. Hope you like it!
Sorry for the hijack, everyone. Carry on.
edit: I just realized this thread doesn't have spoilers. I don't know that anything below is too spoilery.
I did not especially enjoy the first episode of Broadchurch. I never saw "The Killing", but it looks like it will be kinda like that? The entire show is dedicated to a single murder. Then again, maybe they solve the boys death in episode two.
I will give the show one more episode.
Just watched the pilot and it reminds me a lot of the Inspector Lindley Mysteries - the books, not PBS series. Never watched Dr Who, but Tennent seems good as the lead.
I'm having the same problems with Season Pass as others...had to set manual record for next week.
