Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire by Peter Capaldi

Comments from Youtube

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

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

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.

alyah roberts : the accent makes it more amazing XD

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!

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.

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

Olha Kolesnyk : 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

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

slothfulcobra : Letter writing is a lost art

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

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

Jennifer Flynn : LOVE Capaldi!

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

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

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

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.

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

Mr. AnselmTheWeird0 : Oh The scottish accent!

Christy Arnhart : I just love to watch this.

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

Anna Catherine Kowalsky : I love Peter.

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.

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?

Jayde Blackmar : I think I found a monologue for my audition next week.

spike cestovatel : I like his emocion 🖤🖤🖤

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

Clarion XL : 2:34 Came for *PIG PIG PIG*

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

Sam V : That was wonderful!

Miaew : I died at "pig".

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

Timelord Adventures : wow. just_just wow

Spencer Koelle : Possibly the greatest wig-snatch in human history.

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

Foxtrot Delta : This is why I love Peter Capaldi as an actor in a nutshell. He becomes the role. And by God, he bacame a Cossack leader there. The very fact that these letters are real makes it all the more hilarious and incredible.
