Sylvester McCoys natural accent is Scottish, but as the doctor he seemed to speak with at least a near English accent to me.

Sylvester McCoy was Scottish and spoke with a Scottish accent when he played the Doctor.

EDIT: Damn, got ninja'd on the matter.
Really. He sounded a bit more English to me. He at least tamed his accent a bit.

Tennant's Accent is English? Sure sounds quite a bit like Scottish to my "less than trained ear"? Not as thick like Amy or McCoy, but, to me it definitely sounds quite similar to Scottish.
David Tennant is Scottish, but his doctor put on an English accent.

But I'm terrible with accents, so if I'm wrong, please excuse me.
Sylvester McCoy spoke with his natural accent when he played the Doctor. Just listen to him in DVD interviews, it's identical. Plus being the only Doctor to not have an English accent has made him topic of a few jokes in Who fandom. My uncle is constantly making jokes about regenerating after banging your head on the TARDIS console can change your accent.

Tennant, though Scottish himself spoke with a fake English accent as the Doctor, though got to use his natural accent in Tooth and Claw.
