Tennant to voice Chitty audiobook
01.01.70 | Katie Allen
Scottish actor David Tennant, known for his roles in “Doctor Who” and with the Royal Shakespeare Company, has been chosen to voice the downloadable audiobook of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again by the family of Ian Fleming.
The novel by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the first official sequel to Fleming’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, will be available as an exclusive download for £10.99 from Audible and iTunes from today (21st December).
Lucy Fleming, niece of Ian Fleming, said: “We are thrilled that David agreed to read the audiobook. He is such a talented actor and his voice brings Frank Cottrell Boyce’s story to life with a wry humour and great characterisation.’
The audiobook also includes an interview between Lucy Fleming and Tennant, who said: “The idea of a flying car is hard to better. I think we would all love to have a car that would take off, escape the traffic, and fly you to any country in the world.’
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again is also published as hardback and e-book by Macmillan Children’s Books.
