Voice 46 – Reggie Oliver

Thanks to Chris Bauer for sending this in. I classify this in the genre of “classic soothe”. Basically just lots of crisp consonants and unthreatening poshness. I particularly like the completely unalarming way in which he introduces a Jack the Ripper related passage with “here’s a rather dramatic one in which he tries to strangle the heroine.” It reminds of the six-fingered man from The Princess Bride introducing ghastly torture to the hero as if he’s apologising for a below-par pot of tea.

And it’s a whole THIRTY DAMN HELL MINUTES of it. Yeah, I said damn hell, cos I’m bad.
