aaron1230x : The best thing about this is the fact that he's not making any of this up; it's an actual reply from the 17th century

Birgir Birgisson : Scottish Cossacks would have been an absolutely terrifying force had they existed for real...

Self Education : This people (cossacks) weren't under any state power during centuries. So, every attempt to demonstrate the mightiness of foreign sovereign in front of them was treated like bad anecdote. They just didn't get all this vanity. It could explain a bit the character of the letter. And by the way, English translation is quite close to the Ukrainian original.

changed for better : Числа не знаєм, бо календаря не маєм, місяць в небі, рік в книзі, а день такий як і у вас, і за це поцілуй ось куди нас!

We live in a Society : I think a medieval version of Malcomn Tucker has possessed Capaldi... XD

Olha Popovych : Отвiт Запорожцiв Магомету IV Ти, султан, чорт турецький, i проклятого чорта син і брат, самого Люцеферя секретарь. Який ти в чорта лицар, коли голою сракою єжака не вб'єш?! Чорт ти, висрана твоя морда. Hе будеш ти, сукiн син, синiв християнських пiд собою мати, твойого вiйска ми не боїмося, землею i водою будем биться з тобою, враже ти розпроклятий сину! Распронойоб твою мать! Вавилонський ти жихась, Македоньский колесник, Iєрусалимський бравирник, Александрiйський козолуп, Великого і Малого Египта свинарь, Армянська злодиюка, Татарський сагайдак, Каменецький кат, у всего свiту i пiдсвiту блазень, самого гаспида онук, а нашого хуя крюк. Свиняча ти морда, кобиляча срака, рiзницька собака, нехрещений лоб, ну і мать твою йоб. От так тобi Запоріжцi відказали, плюгавче. Не будеш ти i свиней христiанських пасти. Теперь кончаємо, бо числа не знаємо i календаря не маємо, мiсяць у небi, год у книзі, а день такий у нас, який i у вас, за це поцілуй в сраку нас!.. Пiдписали: Кошевой атаман Иван Сирко Зо всiм кошем Запорожськiм

alyah roberts : the accent makes it more amazing XD

Yura Pawluk : And that's why Ukrainian history is so great XDD

Callum Jordan : The doctor and Douglass Reynholm in one place! It must be Christmas

Scrappy527 : Peter Capaldi is amazing ... he reads so well, and allows himself to immerse himself in the character. Love that his natural Scottish accent is on full display here.

Jerry Brown : I'm a big doctor who fan so I think that speech should go in an episode!!

Champuli : Peter is actually enjoying it!!! :-) that makes it more awesome! :-D

Alla Zhabokryk : you dont even imagine how it sounds in Ukrainian :D

slothfulcobra : Letter writing is a lost art

Nathanielle Crawford : Peter Capaldi is actually reenacting Donald Trump's original, unedited nomination speech.

Alan Schulte : The Zaporozhian's really did not like the Ottomans, as evidenced by their 1676 reply read/reenacted here... however, this letter doesn't do their dislike justice. For in ~July 1624 150 Zaporozhian ships carrying 7,500 warriors sat off the coast of Istanbul; with some Ottoman sources reporting that further Zaporozhian reserves had been swimming along with the 150-strong fleet.

Jordan Beauchemin : This is embarrassing but... Um... Could someone tell me what this is? I don't need anyone to explain to me who Peter Capaldi is but that's literally​ the only thing I know about this video. What is Live Letters? Who was the guy with the marvelous hair? What's going on?

JA Flynn : LOVE Capaldi!

ffra ffa : Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks depicts a supposedly historical tableau, set in 1676, and based on the legend of Cossacks sending a reply to an ultimatum of the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed IV. The original reply, if it ever existed, has not survived; however, in the 1870s an amateur ethnographer from Yekaterinoslav (today Dnipro), Ya. Novitsky, found a copy made in the 18th century. He gave it to historian Dmytro Yavornytsky (1855-1940), who by chance read it to his guests, among whom was the painter Ilya Repin. Repin became curious about the story and in 1880 started the first of his studies.

MDplyr442 : this is a brilliant, Capaldi makes this so much better.

Medio Litro : I'd love this if it wasn't for the "Zaperovian"

KrysRamdas : Malcolm Tucker vs Douglas Reynholm the battle of the bosses.

Mr. AnselmTheWeird0 : Oh The scottish accent!

Vee Cee : Peter Capaldi... Can do anything.

Laurie Batog : Love this! Thanks for posting! ps: Someone needs to make a snippet of the "Pig!.." part and send it to Donald Trump.....

#IDLE : I have one reply to Putin:)

cubic dust : Peter looked like he had alot of fun hahaha

Christy Arnhart : I just love to watch this.

Anna Catherine Kowalsky : I love Peter.

Olha Popovych : And yes, it is real letter. Because Ukraine was under Russian and Rzecz Pospolita oppression, and Zaporozhian Cossacks was Ukrainian Resistance, they was uneducated, marginal, crazy and ready to die for Ukrainian freedom.

Would I even Get monetised : Bill: Doctor! You cant say that! what will all the impressional children think?

rory hazlie : Always xpect him to burst into the Doctor and he is wearing his loake boots

spike cestovatel : I like his emocion 🖤🖤🖤

Sean Derrick : This just in Malcolm Tucker actually 17th century Cossack

Jessica Thompson : "He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master."

Miaew : I died at "pig".

Nicole Song : me, 4 seconds into the video: *gasping* i love him so much

Peter Korman : When Berry started talking, the first thing I thought was, “Douglas, now that we’re alone, I can speak frankly.”

Russian Citizen : Repeat "ZH", "ZH", "ZH", "ZH" like a bee. "ZaporoZHian kozaks". Him pronounce, like a primitive russian pronounce of english. "Shame on both your actors!" (paraphrase)

Yarrski : Capaldi overdramatized it and made it sound too serious. That's not the Zaporozh'e Cossack spirit.

Krptkn : That was wonderful!

Murrangurk2 : My two fave peeps!

Timelord Adventures : wow. just_just wow

Ferda Kaldirim : İ knew that english kind of jokes were never funny but this is seriously on the floor type. İf any of king of whatever would even dare to think this in front of SULTAN Mehmet IV, that would be his very last... But is this to speak like that after him (because you couldnt done anything when he was alive) gonna make you feel better, keep going😉 Even a kid would know that Ottoman Empire was great because its attitude and humanity understand. Ottoman Empire ruled 6.5 millon km2 with justice, not so long ago, only 200 years ago... Its really shame that you never really searched for REAL Ottoman Empire but only believe what this "funny" guys said you... But as ı said if cursing to the ruler of the world behind him gonna make you feel better and act like kids is honorful understand of yours, telling him to f*ck his mom making you feel mature then do it you mannerful(!) people 😊😊

Grant Watson : Capaldi could read the phonebook and I'd enjoy it.

Je suis BRETON BZH : Je kiffe Peter Capaldi (alias Le Docteur 😉)

BonoismyElvis : I hadn't seen this yet, Wow now that was Amazing, Just Amazing coming out of My fave Actors Mouth! :)

Bohdan Chernovol : I suggest you to listen to native speach (even if you won't understand anything), because original sounds great!

Call My Name : LOL Peter is enjoying himself

Robert Miles : the contents of the reply are complements as far as the worthlessness of the mudslimes goes
