Peter Capaldi will be keeping his Scottish accent to play the Doctor in a move by the BBC which is causing some controversy amongst UK Doctor Whofans. In the past,
the series has required actors, including Scottish David Tennant, to adopt a more English accent. Put that way, it seems like a real kick in the teeth, but I’d be willing to bet that outside of Europe very few of us would pick up on Capaldi’s changed dialect in relation to past Doctors had we not read about it. What is important is that Capaldi got something the almighty Tennant did not, which means the show will have an even larger magnifying glass on the new Doctor when the show resumes in 2014!
