Gillan’s Inverness Twang
Regional accents are all the rage on TV these days, and Doctor Who is no different. From the show that coined the phrase “every planet has a north” comes the girl from Inverness, Karen Gillan.
Speaking to Scots newspaper The Press and Journal, Gillan revealed how pleased she was to be using her own accent as opposed to a more straightforward plain English voice.
â€œItâ€™s strange in some ways as the role is already established and the bar set very high, so I have a lot to live up to.
â€œI hope I have done a good job and am delighted at being able to use my own accent.
â€œI definitely need to get a right enuff in there somewhere.â€
Obviously as members of an ancient bloodline of Anglo Saxons, we at Kasterborous have no idea what a “right enuff” might be; in fact it sounds jolly saucy!
We’ll see just how her accent sounds in The Eleventh Hour, on Saturday, 3rd April at 6.20pm!
