There's no such thing as a British accent! It's an English accent.

Once you've learnt the English accent, then you can move on to the accents of Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, Norfolk, Somerset, Berkshire, etc, etc, etc, etc. Just don't bother with the Leicester accent - it's not very nice.

His upper class accent is pretty good. A few words are hit too hard, but generally its good. His lower class British accent is straight from the Dick Van Dyke school of cockney acting (and thats not a good thing)

Latest comment: I imagine that this sounds close, for a foreign listener, but to a native, we don't speak like that. It's nearly there, but not quite. :-)

English dialect - he has two pretty stereotyped accents that actually no-one uses in England. Standard English dialect - I suggest he takes a trip here to find out how we actually speak.

By the same token, many actors in Hollywood are schooled in "Standard North American" which no one actually speaks naturally. However, nearly every English-speaking North American will hear it as (mostly) unaccented.
