James Bond, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Masterpiece Anthology/Downtown Abbey, and Doctor Who. Almost anything to do with fantasy (such as Game of Thrones) will give their characters British accents... for some reason. I don't understand why Americans especially are so obsessed. Perhaps they just really like their accents?
See...I'm something of an Anglophile. I mean not really, that's too strong a word for it, but I do happen to like a lot of British... stuff, for lack of a better word. Two of my absolute favorite shows on television right now are British. It's just Dr. Who for one reason or another completely sails right over my head.
