Default Virgil Tracy's voice

Since I was little, I could never get my head around the idea that series one and series two Virgil were the same character. Forget the voice, they even looked like two different people to me!

So out of curiousity, I mashed together series two Virgil and David Holliday's voice:

What do you think? Is this how he should have sounded all along, or is it just too weird?

Now I'm curious to try series one Virgil voiced by Jeremy Wilkin...

Default Distinctive tones......

.....Virgil was always my favourite - his voice in the first batch of episodes had a very distinctive tone, and a particular warmth to it which I really liked. With no disrespect to the voice artiste who voiced Virgil in the second batch and, presumably, the two films, poor Virgil just never sounded the same and was a shallower character for it.

Just my opinion, thanks for starting the thread,

Kindest regards

Patrick

Excellent work.

Patrick's right - even as a child I knew that Virgil's voice had changed and never liked it!

Always preferred series one Virgil, much better sounding voice.

I feel really bad- I never noticed the difference.
I focus more on the hardware it seems.
