They've Been Out for Revenge All Along!

Another example of mentioning D.V.D.'s bad cockney accent when talking about an English actor's bad American accent.

This is Leicestershire, January 05, 2009, TV review: Demons by Jeremy Clay

Well, it’s taken a while, but it’s finally happened. We’ve had our revenge for Dick Van Dyke.

So take a bow Philip Glenister. Actually, on second thoughts, don’t.

Demons (7.20pm, Saturday), ITV’s bold but backfiring attempt to create a British Buffy, Glenister used an American accent so ropey you half expected to hear the director shout “Cut!” every time he opened his gob.

That shout never came. Perhaps everyone realised he was doing a splendid job of drawing attention away from
Demons’ many shortcomings.
