Here are the last two sections of the Narrator, 14 being the longest of them all.
I was hoping we'd end with Dolittle and Company back in Puddleby. But I just has to edit out my chuckles over the manuscript in Edmunds left ear, and it's quite a flight from St. Paul's to the river, though it's all downhill.

I'll start working on my PL Notes now.

Ok, TJ, the first completed section is ready for you! Granted, it's only the prologue and cast list, but it's a start!

Also, TJ, I'm PLing the Doctor's lines as I paste them in. But if you're able to check those last few narrator files, it'd be a huge help!

One note for Todd, section 2:

0:09 "and the kind they had in the officers' mess was very good." You left off the "and," without which the sentence doesn't sound right.

1 and 3 are PL ok.

With the exception of section 2, all the Doctor files are PL ok so far! :thumbs:

I've assembled everything that I have so far. It all sounds very good together, from what I'm hearing!

The role of Dolittle is PL ok, except for the final section, section 15.

2:18 Text reads "...who in days gone by did a very great deal for man and beast..." I hear "who in animals gone by did a very great deal for man and beast..."

OPTIONAL: You might also correct a slight change just previous to this. It changes the meaning just slightly, little enough that I probably wouldn't have mentioned it if there was nothing else. 2:10 Text reads "I want them to build me an island in the middle of Lake Junganyika." I hear "I want them to help me build an island in the middle of Lake Junganyika."

I started with the shorter of the two... cuz... that's just the way I roll... :D

Narrator, Section 15, is PL OK.

I just found one missing "and" that didn't change the meaning at all, and one "could" instead of "would" that also doesn't change the meaning:

4:29
And of course tons and tons of stone would have to be dropped before the new island would begin to show above the water's surface.

You say:
And of course tons and tons of stone would have to be dropped before the new island could begin to show above the water's surface.

I'll try to do the longer chapter tomorrow.
