Ten reads Christmas stories for children

Much to the joy of children and lovers of Scottish accents everywhere, David Tennant reads four children's stories for Christmas on BBC, linked here for your viewing enjoyment.

What is it about the accent that is so appealing? Better yet: what is it that causes such a marked difference between this dialect, apparently Ten's normal mode of speech, and the more overexaggerated accent that he uses for the Ghost of Christmas Present in "Nan's Christmas Carol"? How many dialects does this man speak, anyway?
