Broadchurch 2 And Gracepoint Among Top 10 Things To Look Forward To In 2014 Say Anglophenia

The BBC America blog Anglophenia have listed both the new series of Broadchurch and its US adaptation Gracepoint among the biggest things to look forward to in 2014. They say:

Well, with the Season 1 Whodunit? answered, now we have two equally tantalizing questions in mind. No. 1: How do you top that season? No. 2: how do you recreate this achievement … in AmericaBroadchurch‘s first British series appeared remarkably self-contained: it told the story of a town rocked by the murder of a young boy, plumbed through the suspects, and resolved the mystery instead of dragging it out for season upon season. But instead of concluding the story, we’re moving forward with a second season and a group of characters who must re-build their emotionally devastated relationships. The astonishing Olivia Colman has confirmed her involvement in a follow-up season, but there’s no word on her on-screen partner David Tennant, who has signed on to the Fox’s U.S. limited series remake Gracepoint. Broadchurch‘s British creator Chris Chibnall will write Gracepoint‘s first episode, an amazing international ensemble will co-star alongside Tennant, including Breaking Bad Emmy winner Anna Gunn, two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, three-time Oscar nominee Nick Nolte, Transamerica‘s Kevin Zegers, and others. 

Other events in the Top 10 include the return of Sherlock and Matt Smith's post-Doctor Who career.
