David Tennant has defended his choice to perform in an American accent for his upcoming role in Gracepoint, a US adaptation of the murder mystery hit Broadchurch. Fans of the seaside drama have criticised Tennant’s use of an American accent, feeling he should have maintained his Scottish accent from the original series.

Tennant shrugged this criticism off, saying: “If they’re fans of Doctor Who, I didn’t use a Scottish accent in that, either. I used an English accent in that.

“I think doing different accents is part of the job of acting really. It’s something that I quite enjoy the challenge of.

“Obviously, it’s something that you take seriously, and you work with dialect coaches to help you, and then you practice until it’s in your bones.

We’ll have to wait and see how well the accent is maintained, but we have every faith in Tennant’s acting skills and are sure he can pull it off. Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) will star alongside the Scottish actor as his partner detective.

Gracepoint will air on FOX in the US on October 2. View the trailer here!
