No, they are careful to make sure the accents are semi-realistic, but mild 
enough that people living over 100 miles away 
can understand them. :-)

I spent a couple of days in Manchester with our District Manager in 1977. Nice, 
competent fellow, I think, but it wasn't 
until I'd been with him for several hours that I actually understood much of 
what he said.

I've much later seen shows set there, and could understand most of it. Nowhere 
NEAR as thick as the real thing.
