Fans are disappointed by the Scottish accent in Netflix hit Behind Her Eyes (Image: Twitter) One fan wrote: "The Scottish accent in Behind Her Eyes is borderline a hate crime." Another added: "Few things worse in this world than when TV series hire English actors to play a Scottish character. Started watching Behind Her Eyes on Netflix and can’t get past the absolutely brutal attempt at a Scottish accent. Painful." Another claimed they felt sorry for Scots explaining: "I’m 5 minutes 40 seconds into Behind Her Eyes on Netflix and I’m truly so offended for all Scottish people with this awful attempt at the Scottish accent." One even compared Tom's accent to Fat B*st*rd in Austin Powers saying: "Watched the 1st episode of Netflix series ‘Behind Her Eyes’ and the lead male is an English actor doing an absolutely brutal attempt at a Scottish accent. Why do they do this? Just hire a Scot or make the character English.
." And another questioned simply: "Serious question - is Tom Bateman’s Scottish accent in Behind Her Eyes supposed to be a good one? Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite joined in with the discussion saying: "What’s with Netflix hiring non Scots to play Scottish guys with disastrous results? First Bly Manor now Behind Her Eyes. Worst accents ever. Sooooooooo bad." And another slammed: 'Really trying to enjoy Behind Her Eyes on Netflix but this David characters “Scottish” accent sounds like a mix of Gerard Bultler and nails on a f***ing chalkboard." However some fans felt that Tom pulled it off. One enthused: "What's better than Tom Bateman? Tom Bateman with a Scottish accent. I'm watching Behind Her Eyes 1x01 "Chance Encounters"
