This is a page where Thomas fans can post who they think would be a good narrator for the Thomas and Friends series and why. You may post your own ideas, but please don't edit anyone else's ideas. Also, you can only post real people in your sections. No fan-made people allowed. If the person in question is deceased, you may only refer to which season(s) have aired prior to their death.
- Paul McCartney (He and Ringo Starr are the only two Beatles members that are still alive. And since Ringo narrated Seasons 1 and 2, as well as the Ladybird Books cassettes, well, I thought it would be interesting to hear McCartney narrate for either the TV Series, the Railway Series or maybe even a Thomas book by Random House.)
- Tara Strong (There's never been an English-speaking female narrator for the Thomas franchise and I thought Tara would be a great narrator for the series. I've heard her voice many different TV characters, and it gives me some ideas on how her voices for some characters would sound. Example: I imagine that her Emily or Mavis voice would sound similar to Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and that her Rosie voice would sound similar to Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls.)
- Denny Doherty (Seasons 6-9/Jack and the Sodor Construction Company) (Since I was younger, I thought Denny Doherty, who was the Harbor Master on Theodore Tugboat would have been a good narrator for Thomas. I think he would have done a great job narrating Season 6 replacing Alec Baldwin, who would have left after Thomas and the Magic Railroad was a box-office flop. Doherty would have also narrated for Seasons 7-9, as well as the special Calling All Engines!, and the Jack and the Sodor Construction Company spin-off. In 2006 he would have retired due to illness, thus lending the role to Michael Brandon, who would have taken over for Seasons 10-16, excluding The Great Discovery, which would still be narrated by Pierce Brosnan. I think it'd be neat if some of his voices from the Theodore Tugboat narrations carried on to some of the characters for Thomas and Friends, such as his George voice for Gordon, his Digby voice for Toby, and his Owan voice for Cranky)
- Nicole Oliver (There's never been an English-speaking female narrator for the Thomas franchise, and I thought Nicole would be a great narrator for the series. I've heard her voice several different TV characters, and it gives me ideas on how her voices for some of the characters would sound. For example, I imagine that her Mavis voice would sound similar to either Princess Celestia or Cheerilee from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and that her Daisy voice would sound similar to Zoe Trent from Littlest Pet Shop)
