Gillan’s Inverness Twang

Karen Gillan is Amy Pond in Doctor WhoRegional 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.

“It’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.

“I hope I have done a good job and am delighted at being able to use my own accent.

“I definitely need to get a right enuff in there somewhere.”

We’ll see just how her accent sounds in The Eleventh Hour, on Saturday, 3rd April at 6.20pm!
