    I'm guessing it's a typical Londoner accent? Which is (nowadays I think) a cockney/urban hybrid?

    They're in Whitechapel, but they're not from Whitechapel. Their actual accent is probably Estuary.

    haha, oooh, right...

    i was thinking KK was some london musician who's accent is overly accentuated to sound far more 'street'. it's happening a lot nowadays...

    i suck.

    After reading about that accent, that makes sense.

    estuary covers a fair spread of people. it pushed out from london as far as suffolk and essex killing off a lot of the country accents. i suppose my accent would wear that label though traveling around is knocking edges off it all the time.

    I guess I come under Estuary too. Weird, I'd never even considered what accents the characters might have!

    @synthsapien

    Interesting site but they don't seem to have a listing for "Estuary" which I gather is a broader category. Can you list some examples of an "estuary" accent?
