He's saying "Ma'am" not "Mum".
27 April 2019 | by kimintuitiveSee all my reviews

I really thought I was good at accents, but throughout the whole thing I became convinced that British people must call their superior women "Mum". I did start to psychoanalyse the British for Mommy issues. Until I find out hot Scotsmen say "Ma'am" this way.

That aside, the series was great. Suspenseful, hot and had me hooked.
