Rex Is Not Your Dialect Coach
Ever wondered what David Tennant’s failed US pilot Rex Is Not Your Lawyer might have been like?
His first TV project following Tennant’s departure from Doctor Who, this US TV show was conceived and developed for recording and broadcast in 2010 – however no network picked up Rex.
The concept – in which Tennant plays a lawyer with stage fright, meaning he is unable to represent clients and coaches them to represent themselves in course – seemed to have plenty of milage.
So was it low on laughs, or was there something amiss with one of the performances…? Well wonder no more – we’ve got a clip below!
Somehow this clip has surfaced online, and it is fair to say Rex probably needed a bit of work – not least from David Tennant’s accent!
Now I’ve never been to America, but I’ve seen quite a few of its inhabitants on the telly.
They rarely sound like that…
