And the Daily Telegraph Review section yesterday had an interview with Kelly Macdonald, who plays Mrs Walker. It explains why she used a Scottish accent - it is her own. She was brought up in Glasgow. When she auditioned for the part she used 'period drama RP' but she was told to use her own accent, as Philippa Lowthorpe, the director, "had this notion to make the mother Scottish because they thought she could have some fun with that". Hmmm. We can all judge soon, as the film goes on general release on the 19th. (If you watch the cricket Test Match highlights each evening, you will have seen the film advertised during one of the breaks.)
