PL notes for Chapter 2:

@1:21 the word "doctoring" seems to have been cut short in editing - I've just checked and I think it's an editing error, as it is clear enough in the original character file.
@04:05 there's a loud click in the narration over the words "at tea time" (maybe just see if this can be smoothed over with noise removal, it shouldn't need a re-record.)

Chapter 2 is fixed. I ran some noise removal over the thump, it's still there but I think it's a little better. I agree it isn't worth a re-record. :)

Thanks for all your hard work! :D

The thump is fine now - we just needed to reduce the volume so that it doesn't hurt people's ears!

The two words "doctoring animals" are very soft - sorry to fuss, but this is a key concept for the whole book, as this is the moment that Dr Dolittle gets the idea to become the Dr who "talks to the animals" that we all know and love!

Yay!
I'm going to finish up the editing on my plays and then I should be ready to launch Oliver Twist. :)
