Peter Elphick is here! And then, getting the heck out of here.

:lol: indeed Elphick and Shafto both feel a bit uncomfortable that evening in their company. I was expecting him to break out playing the banjo at any time. Elphick is nicely characterized, you play him a bit distracted, fast-speaking and trying to be jovial despite feeling in the wrong place at the wrong time. :thumbs: Well done, I like it.

Only a few small cuts to make:

> at 0:54-1:01: stumbles and repeats “Well, when a man’s a bit low” – can be cut, even though it was highly entertaining. :lol: this would be a perfect snippet for the bloopers thread, if you want to keep it for posterity: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=28787 :mrgreen:

> at 1:59-2:12: repeats: “Enjoyed seeing the cottage again enormously” – can you cut out all the trials and only keep the one you’re happy with ? Unless you want Todd to choose the best one, but the snippets that have stumbles in them usually can be cut out, as they won't get used anyway

Thanks !

:shock: that's almost 2 hours of listening ! I need to warn you that I cannot do this all today. Somehow the time just vanished and I didn't get anything done yet :( Sorry about any delays.

an excellent performance, Eva :clap: kudos to you because Olive is a very difficult role to play. You bring in the needed amount of jealousy on the one side and desperation on the other. Really well played out. :thumbs: Nothing missing as far as I can see, so this is totally PL ok.

thanks !
