As another Briggs fan, I find it hard to imagine most voices being done better than his vocalizations, save for the witches, whom Nigel Planer does better.


Although I could imagine Michael Gambon doing Ridcully's voice, Judi Dench doing Granny and Stephen Fry doing Vetinari.

yeah, I tend to hear them as Briggs reads them, though I prefered Nigel Planer's version of the wizards.

After the first time I met Terry, I used to read the books with Terry's voice in my head. Sort of like he was reading them to me.
That's what I tend to do more, when I begin to notice my own voice in my head. It's only really with Feegles that I do voices.

Oh, and Fids, I love your Stephen Merchant idea for Carrot, not physically, but in voice if's perfect!

I was pleased to hear at the production of Wyrd Sisters I was at last weekend that the witches all had Lancashire accents. The rest of the cast were a bit hit and miss with the voices, but they were still very good :D
