Based on the stories by the late Reverend W Awdry, this 17th series of Thomas & Friends will be narrated by popular Brookside, Heartbeat and Holby City actor Mark, who follows Ringo Starr and Michael Angelis. Mark will act as the storyteller in all English-language territories.
Mark Moraghan said: “It is fantastic to be associated with such an iconic series and a great legacy for my children and grandchildren. I am very proud to be part of it.”
Michael Carrington, head of content and production at Hit Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark Moraghan to Thomas & Friends. The voices of the series are almost as iconic as the little engine himself and Mark’s lyrical, understated storytelling complements the on-screen action beautifully.”
