Which do you prefer, Zoe's original voice or new voice?

Too early for me to say. I really loved the old one so I'm kinda biased against the new one.

I'll get over it eventually and then I can be objective. But first I have to hear more of the new one, so after book 2 at the earliest.

I am learning to tolerate Zoe's new voice, it doesnt annoy me as much as it did. But Zoe's original voice (Ellie) was far more appropriate for a girl of her background and education. Ellies accent was also fairly regionless which was a major plus when you have characters from the future.

I like the new Zoë, but then I already liked the new actress from her role in Siblings (it's a TV series from BBC 3).

 

And in a way it's more appropriate, Zöe spent her first years in London, where she would have learnt to speak and would have picked up the local accent, and Charlotte Ritchie actually is from London.

 

Also, according to Wikipedia, she's also a singer-songwriter like that Egil Olsen guy.

I absolutely love the original Zoë´s voice......so pleasant, caring, vulnerable :wub:

so the new voice is still a big ear-breaker for me even I´ve played the game for 4 times already...and I´m getting used to it, I think....but the original voice sounded 1000% better.

 

It´s strange that Charlotte Ritchie got the voice role....her voice is interesting but doesn´t fit here.....she should dub some drug and alco addicted girl from the street (no offense, just her voice sounds too hoarse and that makes her best for singing for sure, but not for Zoë, sorry)....what I would like to say that if I want to find two absolute different voices in the world, it couldn´t be anything like these two voices

Who doesn't love the original voice? I know I do!

 

But... Charlotte got me after playing through Storytime. The new voice is so soothing, relaxing. Specially during the Storytime part of the game. In my point of view it fits perfectly. I adore her :)

Not a bad word about "old Zoe", but I love her new voice!

It's by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, so you know it's going to be a bit... er... odd.

Charlotte Ritchie is quite beautiful, i wouldn't mind her playing a live action Zoë :) She doesn't look exactly like Zoë, but who cares, she has the voice :P

I haven't replied, and yet I do care. At first I couldn't quite articulate it, but then Wandrew said it splendidly.

Definitely a new one. Not sure why exactly I'm thinking that way, but maybe because British accent isn't so sharp now, no offence :) But Ellie also was great as Zoe
