listened to this yesterday and today and thought it made of win! so pleased you were willing to go for the tom baker and janet fielding voices in a big way. my face was like this :D particularly with the tom baker stuff, which was brilliant. and i lolled at the braxiatel non-collection line (which i have always liked, but it was wonderfully delivered).but basically it was all very entertaining and generally excellent.

one thing i would say (because i am that sort of person apparently) is that it would probably help if there was more a gap between sections. the one that was particularly bemusing was four into five, which just seemed to flow on from brax's sadness into some scouring of waleses.

but otherwise it was made of awesomeness, as i said.

did you crosspost these to [livejournal.com profile] amplificathon (or the DW version?). there is... at least one person there who likes gallifrey stuff :D

Hurrah! I am glad you liked. I have to admit, most of the reason I chose to record this fic as well as The Importance of Being On Stage was because I wanted to see if I could do all the voices justice. A bit of a challenge to myself. And I found, in the doing, that doing characters with sliiiightly irritating voices is a lot of damn fun; Peri and Tegan particularly come to mind. I wished, actually, that Tegan had more lines, just because they were so much fun to read. And I'm really pleased, especially, that you thought I did the Four stuff justice. I was slightly concerned when reading that scene, because Tom Baker and Miles Richardson have very similar characteristics to their voices; they've both got that deep, round sound to them, and I wanted to make sure I kept them distinct.

And I do believe you are absolutely right when you say that. That I will put down to the fact that by the time I'd finished recording and got 'round to editing it, I was just in a hurry to upload the silly thing, so there might be some slightly clumsy or oddly-spaced cuts in there.

I have not! I will do that.

I DIED AT SUSAN. And then kept loving it! Omg you *killed* it. I can't believe you were so hungry for scenery, and it works *so well*. AUGH FOUR FOUR AUUUUUUGH. So good! And I love the Benny, well done, it does sound like her! Everything about this made me able to like, enjoy the performance and also my own story, and the latter never happens b/c I can't distance myself from having written it when it's on the page, so THANK YOU. I think that's actually a surprisingly strong Eight as well--it's so /hard/ to get his voice, and he is *all voice* b/c of his medium and b/c that might be McGann's key, highly idiosyncratic feature? Anyway thank you!!!!!

Oh man, thank you so much! And thank you for having written something so much fun to sink my teeth into. In case you couldn't tell, I thoroughly enjoy a bit of scenery-chewing.

And I am glad you liked Eight! I always find him tricky vocally, and usually I end up just trying to replicate his intonation and speech patterns rather than any particular vocal quality, because I never feel like I can quite nail it. Weirdly, Zagreus I can do no problem. But I am glad it worked for you! My morning has quite been made by this comment.
