Peter Capaldi is likely to keep his Scottish accent when he joins Doctor Who.
The Glaswegian actor was unveiled as the Twelfth Doctor in a live TV special this month, and will make his debut this Christmas.
With Matt Smith staying in the role until then, little is known about plans for Capaldi’s Doctor. But now, showrunner Steven Moffat has said that he is “pretty certain” that he will use his native accent in a portrayal of an “older, trickier and fiercer Doctor.”
The Paisley-born David Tennant was made to adopt a southern English accent during his tenure. When Moffat took over, he allowed Karen Gillan to play Amy Pond in her own Scottish accent.
