Mike the Knight’s dad – part deux

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

It happened! Mike the Knight’s dad makes an appearance in this year’s Christmas special. Sadly not voiced by Brian Blessed as I’d hoped, nor Tom Baker, but Alexander Armstrong. Though I do like him.

Mike the Knight Voices

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

I recently discovered Jessica Hann’s website – she does the voice of Mike the Knight’s sister Evie (who is, incidentally my favourite Mike the Knight character). And from her website I found out who did the dragons’ voices – each of which had been bugging me for a while as being semi-familiar.

Sparky is played by Colin McFarlane, who brings a certain presence to whatever he’s in. You may recognise him if you’re a fan of Torchwood, or Judge John Deed, or Reggie Perrin.

And Squirt is Russell Tovey, probably best known for Being Human, Him & Her and Gavin & Stacey.

Incidentally, Colin McFarlane also plays Harrison in Chuggington.
