Actor-guide Richard Walker – he of the great voice (it’s been described as being ‘simultaneously as leathery as a pair of old chaps and as dark and mysterious and welcome as fresh spring water in a desert’) – is creating a Virtual Tour that’s going to look at every London connection in the Harry Potter novels. Look at them in the order in which they appear. This podcast is a “taste” of what’s to come. Enjoy. Though no need to enjoin you to do so, given the subject and the performer.
It’s all great – every last syllable – but if I had to pick an all-time favourite moment, it’d be the way Richard says, “Dark times lie ahead of us.” And what I wouldn’t give to be able to do a sign-off the way Richard does his.
