There’s nothing like a weird accent to put you off a TV show, especially if that accent is supposed to be ‘British’ but constantly changes throughout the episode!
This is exactly what happened on the US TV show Castle. A character was supposed to be from Newcastle, but as HelloU writer Alfie Powell points out, it sounded ‘more like an American man got amnesia, forgot how to talk, learned again from an Irishman… got shot in the kneecaps and THEN was asked to sound like he was from Newcastle’.
As one of the regular characters on Castle states, ‘If this guy is from England, why doesn’t he speak English?’
