First Hugh Laurie, now this... All we have now is Stephen Fry.

You guys know that 'Rex Is Not Your Lawyer' wasn't picked up by NBC, right? The show isn't happening. David Tennant already *is* back in the UK.

I'm either so used to his British and Scottish accents, or his American accent is awful. Or both. Sorry, David, but you sound ridiculous.

If I hadn't heard him speaking in Scots, followed by English mockney I'd probably have accepted that Accent. But since I have I'm not overly keen.

Uuugh they should have just left his character Scottish. That American accent is terrible.

As an American... oh its BAD! I can tell he's Scottish by the end of the first word! I love DT, he is always my Doctor. But... American accents... no. I'm sorry. So very, very sorry.

OMG his American accent sounds SO MUCH LIKE EWAN MCGREGOR'S American accent! I'm cracking up!

It's a little more distracting than Ewan's though...

It's so very bad, although I've already heard his American accent. Anyone else listen to the audiobook "The Last Voyage"?

I hope everyone knows this has been cancelled by NBC...

He did quite a good American accent in a radio version of Mice and Men though...

Yikes. That was so awful, I couldn't even make it through 10 seconds of it. Thanks for posting, though!
