One of the reasons I (used to?) love British mysteries is the way actors speak. I understand the need to showcase a broad range of accents that may appeal to diverse social and cultural backgrounds. However, it is hard to pay attention to a plot when the audience strains to understand every single word that comes out of every character's mouth. Vera, Endeavour, Grantchester and Shakespeare & Hathaway are just a few examples of shows that have achieved great success despite portraying characters who speak with a cockney or regional accent. British TV shows have earned international acclaim because Hollywood tends to focus on highlighting rippling muscles and pretty, albeit plastic, faces instead of good acting. Don't ruin that!
