Not the least bit "Who",
This review is from: Nicci French: Secret Smile (DVD)
First be warned. There is not the least bit of "Doctor Who" in Tennants performance of the sociopath Brendan Block - which only highlights what a great actor he is. When I watched "Secret Smile" for the first time, I had to leave the room on some scenes(I do not watch too many psycho-thrillers, you know ...). The second time, I could really enjoy Brendan Blocks evil genious, how every word, every move, every glance is used with such perfect precision to destroy the life of his ex-girlfriend. It's just creepy.
By the way: Tennant uses his "native tongue", so I needed some weeks afterwards, until I could enjoy listening to a scottish accent again without shivers going down my spine. ;o)

Oh I completely love his scottish accent. His real accent is soooo much better than his english accent. Such a shame he isnt scottish is Dr Who or Hamlet...

Could have been worse. He could have used a German accent! Typical, The porridge noshers mangle the English language and you think it's wonderful and sexy. Oh pleeeaase!
