Ah! Cuberbatch voiced an audio as Angel Islington from Neverwhere!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for this!

and just enhanced

Check this clip, from his take on the Angel Islington in Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere aired just last week


First one is a compilation, second one from the last episode

And #Neverwhere There was NO treatment on any of the voices in tonight's episode(last). Benedict was Islington using radio acting skills. Masterclass. https://twitter.com/...s/315177646650691584

I know, right?! [In reply to] Can't Post

yikes that was awfully creepy! !!! I got scary goosebumps just listening to the clip. What a voice, and not even altered.

We're in for a treat with Smaug for sure!

That sounds really good [In reply to] Can't Post

There is some reptilian hissing going on, along with a deep voice. I'm sure BC will do a very fine job of the voice – he could probably make anything work.

I agree that the voice has to be different from a human-sounding voice. Difficult…

Thanks very much posting the link.
