David Tennant starred with Olivia Colman in Broadchurch

Will Tennant’s American Accent Work For Broadchurch Remake?

David Tennant is to reprise his role in the US version of hit drama Broadchurch… and he’ll be adopting an American accent.

Fox has signed David up to star in the remake of the ITV1 drama which, as in the UK original, will revolve around the effects on a community of the murder of a young boy.

The series was a massive success in Britain, due in no small part to the leading man’s performance as the detective in charge of the investigation who has secrets of his own.

There’s no word yet as to whether Tennant will return in series 2 of British Broadchurch. On BBC Radio 4’s Front Row this week he told Mark Lawson to ask Chris Chibnall if he’d be coming back, though it would surely be a huge surprise if he doesn’t return.

Doctor Number Ten has some form with US accents, adopting one in 2010 for Rex is Not Your Lawyer, a pilot that didn’t get taken up.

What do you think? As good as Damian Lewis in Homeland? Or more of a Dick Van Dyke in reverse?

has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along.
