help me with this accent

I can’t quite figure out this accent. I’m thinking, maybe somewhere around Scotland or Ireland -ish? Though it doesn’t sound like what I usually hear from either of those countries.

play the preview video to hear him speak

And Joel, if you’re reading these boards, please just come right out and give me the answer :wink:

Sounds a bit north-western English to me - Manchester area?
Reminds me of Christopher Eccleston when he played the ninth Doctor Who…

Hmm, could be but when I watched videos of the manchester accent I didn’t hear some of the same sounds like the ‘eh’ in ‘babeh’ or ‘kitteh’ the way Joel says them.
