Nerd Question: Blaidd Drwg

I'm a Doctor Who fan, and there's an eppy where "bad wolf" appears in Welsh as Blaidd Drwg. They say it "Blythe droog", but to be honest, I thought rather it would be more like X-SAMPA /blED drI\g/ (IPA /blɛð drƗk/) or /blED drMk/ (IPA /blɛð drɯk/), depending on region. Can anyone help? I am unfamiliar with Welsh phonology... I only know a bit about Breton.
