I've seen a couple of online pans of Sophie Okonedo's accent as "Queen Liz Ten" in the 'Doctor Who' episode "The Beast Below". (One made me laugh - calling it "Dick Van Dyke bad", a reference to his role as Bert in "Mary Poppins".)

But that would only be a valid complaint if it was an accent from the present day. This episode was set in the 32nd Century (approximately) and who knows how much the accent may have changed in those intervening ages.

I didn't notice anything out of order... but then, I never care when Brits "play" Americans either...
