Danger Mouse and Penfold get voices for new series

September 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Crumbs, chief! It looks like the Danger Mouse reboot has added the principal actors…

Alexander Armstrong, presenter of Have I Got News For You, will play the eye-patched hero and comedian Kevin Eldon will play his put-upon sidekick, Penfold. Come Dine With Me’s Dave Lamb will be the narrator and Shauna MacDonald is the new Professor Squawkencluck – niece of the original Professor – while Morwenna Banks will play numerous parts. Does this suggest we’re in sequel territory here? Possibly…

Armstrong said: “As a lifelong fan of Danger Mouse I was ecstatic just to know that the show was coming back. To be actually involved with the reboot and to be taking DM out to a whole new generation is about as close to a dream job as you could wish for.”

Eldon added: “I’m absolutely delighted to be the new voice of Danger Mouse’s trusty sidekick Penfold. It’s a role and not a mole, Penfold’s not a mole, he’s a hamster that I’m going to really enjoy. When I am recording the episodes, I’ll be making sure that at all times my eyebrows are at least three inches above my head.”

DM returns in 2015.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
