Local Victoria news station CHEK News have run an item to mark the end of the five month shoot of Gracepoint in the Greater Victoria area of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
The FOX TV remake of the award winning UK series Broadchurch has been filming on location on the Island since late January. The production has brought millions to the local economy, via permit costs and boosts to local businesses. The Island has also seen increased tourism as curious fans flocked to the locations hoping for a glimpse of stars David Tennant and Anna Gunn.
The TV news report features clips from the trailer featuring David Tennant and filming footage of Kevin Zegers.
