And you would be right. Well, it's a drinky I do enjoy, but Broon and I are not exclusive.

I don't know if it's just my American ears but it's a shame these funny lines fly by so fast that it's hard to make out a lot of times. I often find myself missing things without another viewing (or is that their sinister plan to air more advertising ).
That's no excuse. I'm not only America, but from the South. If I can follow it without trouble, anyone can.

Southern dialects are closer-related to English ones than those in the rest of the country according to my old diction and dialect professor. There is some place in the south where, supposedly, they speak as close to 'colonial-era English' as you can get, closer even than any modern English accent.

You may be thinking of Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay. Also, Harkers Island off the coast of North Carolina.

Didn't pick up the appearance of Dame Diana Rigg until the credits and the actress who played Ada is her daughter.

First mother/daughter appearance for a Doctor Who serial?
She made that episode. Love her in Game of Thrones as well.

I think she was at her best when she played Ms. Danvers a few years back.

I think it was the latter.

Certainly, there's a lot of evidence that Shakespeare probably sounded a lot more like some Americans than anyone in England now or for the last 200 years...

Re: 7X11 The Crimson Horror(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS

Academic studies... basically, the early American accent was derived from the standard accent of 17th century England, and then we both diverged, but the philological studies of spelling and so on suggest that some American accents are probably closer to 17th century English than anything currently in use in England.
There can't be any certainty about it in the absence of recordings, but the linguistic analysis heads that way.
