comment Can one say, “John Doe for World Cup,” meaning “I vote for John Doe to have a place in the national team”?
Thanks! I needed something short and catchy and with "the" it really sounds right. Ouch, how could I forget that "the"? :)

Just dug up a video of Nasser Hussain speaking. Also quite different from the Tennant's Doctor... I'm getting confused, lol.

Thanks! I read on Estuary on Wikipedia and most of the features seem to apply to Tennant's Doctor. However, I have some questions, still. I found a couple of other people who are known to speak Estuary: David Beckham and Jamie Oliver. They both sound way more "cockney" to me than the Tenth Doctor. Maybe there's just a certain range of Estuary accents and those three are on one end and the Tenth Doctor on the other? Lily Allen sounds to me more like the Doctor but still not quite.

Man, I love the fact that on this forum it's possible to maintain a serious discussion of the existence of the Gallifreyan accent :D

Thanks! But I noticed half the links disappeared for some reason; then RegDwight apparently made a rollback. I will not interfere and let people who know better distill my question :)
