Hello Elizabby!

I have managed to PL ALL your reads, but I have somehow managed
to lose the detailed breakdown that I originally wrote! (I'm a wee bit P'd off!)

Anyway, everything is okay as far as I am concerned. (Although I do feel a little like the tadpole that tried
to teach the frog how to hop!)

Just one major issue - in story 9 - Engineers Thumb - I can't relate what you have read to the posted text.
Perhaps I am colour blind, so please take a look at that.

Everything else is AWESOME!

ANdrew :D

Gavenport,

I totally disagree - as an Englishman I can assure you that it
is a darn sight better than my German! :wink:

Besides, I think that those aspects that you may consider to be 'defects' - actually
provide an authenticity to the performance...

However, I don't want to harass you, so no pressure!

Andrew :D

Oh - nearly forgot!

I shall PL your performance on the morrow, and let you know ASAP how it goes!

Most appreciated, Dude! :wink:

There's just one word that isn't quite right, at 1:23 the word should be "Deadliest"

The rest of the file is PL OK!

Many thanks! This is all PL OK, and it's a lovely reading. The character is supposed to have an accent, so your reading matches the character description perfectly - there are a couple of unusual pronunciations, but that just adds to the character! And you did a fantastic job of the name of the Swedish princess! I had no idea how that was going to sound! Thanks so much for those two characters!

If you have a desire to read more characters, we need some more voices in the Doctor Dolittle project - the dark blue link in my signature file! There's a few small roles left there. I'm pleased to say that this project is nearly fully cast!

I've changed the colour to make it easier to find - there's only the two lines about three quarters of the way through the text, so the subtle shade I originally chose is hard to find. I've made it bright pink now! :mrgreen:

All done - I hope it's ok :-)

Excellently done! A very dramatic Colonel Stark at the end there - very appropriate! Many thanks for making those corrections! :thumbs:

A Case of Identity. Mary Sutherland.

Elizabby, you say 'Mr. Sherlock Holmes", but in the script it says 'Mr. Holmes'.
I would regard this as a small text error not worth correcting personally, as this isn't a "word perfect" text nor does the error change meaning. I think I was in the middle of a dramatic scene and decided to just keep rolling rather than stop and correct it! You can take it out in editing if you like, but it would be acceptable to just leave it also.

Okay Beth, I'll leave it as is - just thought I would check in with you first.

Thanks for changing the colour of tut Policeman - I'm sure it will be OK!

As you have already okayed the King of Bohemia, I won't bother, but I totally
agree with your comments. (We're getting some interesting voices for this one!)

Andrew :D

Updated/corrected Col Openshaw. I added a "-001" to the end of the file name.
You can then use both files, use the best, etc.
