I seem to recall fans urging Jodie Whittaker to keep her Yorkshire accent for Doctor Who. I don’t recall having any sort of confirmation from the Beeb as to whether that would happen.
This trailer starts off soft but the full Yorkshire builds up strongly!
Of course, recent Doctors have kept Scottish accents even if ones before had toned it down. So it’s not that surprising to hear a northern accent coming from the Timelord. Lots of planets have a north.
Along with Jodie as the Doctor this season will star Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole as Graham, Yasmin and Ryan as companions.
Oh, are you a LARPer? The one expression you have to master saying in a Yorkshire accent is trouble at t’mill.
