Moffat: Doomed dialogue sounds great in Scottish
Steven Moffat has said that Peter Capaldi using his native Scottish accent in the role will only enhance his Doctor.
Speaking to IGN about what Peter Capaldi has in store for us: “Scottishness. I think that’s the main thing,” he said.
“I mean watching him, and I just watched episode two actually, you don’t go around thinking this is an older bloke as the Doctor, particularly. But then I don’t know if I ever thought Matt Smith was young? You just think my god, he’s Scottish!”
He adds: “Doomed dialogue doesn’t half sound great in Scottish. You say the world’s about to end in a Scottish accent, and you really believe it!”
