Is "smart British guy" an accent?

Can't believe I'm using a question on this, but it's driving me mad...what accent is shared by David Mitchell and the character Maurice Moss on the IT Crowd (no idea if the actor actually shares this accent when not playing the role). Is it a regional accent, or just a peculiarly nasal way of speaking? Do Brits perceive them as having the same accent? Is it upper-class, nerdy, or what?
