Steampunk Granny loves good drama and there is a new show on television and it has my full attention. Gracepoint is a ten episode American series based on the popular UK series Broadchurch. This is crime drama at its best following, True Detective and Major Crimes as my to watch show.
Gracepoint was created and written by Chris Chibnall who is also the brains behind the series, Broadchurch. It stars David Tennant as Detective Emmett Carver and Anna Gunn as Detective Ellie Miller.
The first episode has Det. Miller a bit pissed off over losing a promotion to lead detective to Carver while she was away. These two detectives are good at what they do, but they come to the crime scene with their own baggage of backstories and failures. The animosity between them must be put aside when the body of a young boy is found at the base of a cliff overlooking the ocean.
Was it an accidental death? Forensic investigation points to murder. Will they solve the case? That my friends, will be what holds us glued to our television sets, every Thursday night at 9 on Fox.
Watch the show, and if you can, watch the original series this show was based on, Broadchurch.
