American Words and Doctor Who

Did anyone else get thrown a bit when Jack said "mum" in episode 2.05 of Torchwood? With that American accent of his it really seems to me like he should have said "mom." So instead of it being a touching moment, I got all distracted.

It reminds me of the Doctor Who Episode, Daleks in Manhattan when all of those "Americans" kept saying they were going up and down the "lift." It threw me right out of the story. Strangely enough, Martha (the only one who was supposed to be English) was the only one who used the word "elevator" in the whole episode.
