Elisabeth Moss Praises David Tennant and Olivia Colman

Actress Elisabeth Moss has told The Independent that ITV drama Broadchurch is one of her “favourite shows in the entire world”
Using lead actress Olivia Colman's character Ellie Miller as an example of a great role for an actress, she says:
"You could never just have David Tennant in that now. You have to have a great female lead.” and whilst she is full of admiration for Olivia she giggles “I would totally just watch the David Tennant version.”

GRACEPOINT: Episode 9 Review - "How Could You Not Know?"

Image
Episode 8 of Gracepoint left viewers on a real cliffhanger. The closest encounter with the killer of Danny Solano yet left Detective Emmett Carver’s (David Tennant) life in the balance and there was an agonising seven day wait to see if he would pull though.



Indeed he did, and the opening of Episode 9 finds him as crotchety and demanding as ever, still pushing Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) about even from his hospital bed. However, the consequences of his collapse are serious. Not only did they lose an opportunity to apprehend their suspect, but now Carver’s seniors know the seriousness of his heart condition and he has just 24 hours left on the case. Of course, this makes the driven and increasingly desperate detective all the more determined to finish the job, and he will snatch at any lead going. Including, it seems, revisiting the testimony of psychic Raymond Connelly (Adam Greydon Reid), who stresses ever more strongly that the killer is someone close to home. He also has more revelati…

VIDEO PREVIEW - Gracepoint Episode 9: Carver Interrogates Vince

As time runs out for the murder investigation, Emmett Carver (David Tennant) questions a suspect who may have something to do with the death of young Danny Solano - but he's not prepared for the response he gets from plumbling apprentice Vince (Stephen Louis Grush). Please be aware the clip may contain spoilers.


Gracepoint is the US remake of the acclaimed UK series Broadchurch starring David Tennant as lead investigator Carver and Anna Gunn as his colleague Ellie Miller. Viewers have seen new twists and new characters over the last few weeks as the drama has unfolded and are promised a different ending to the original.

Gracepoint episode 9 airs tonight on ITV Encore at 10pm BST.
