Did you see Japan: Earth’s Enchanted Islands
last week? If so, did you notice the beautifully modulated tones of narrator Michelle Dockery, who stars as Lady Mary Crawley in the ITV drama series Downton Abbey
? I must admit I don't usually like female narrators. Some are schoolmarmish. Some chatter away like they're yakking with a girlfriend. The most irritating are the ones who try to be funny. Michelle is perfect. Her timing is immaculate. Episode 2/3 is The Southwest Islands
, which are tropical, on tonight at 9pm. Expect giant land crabs and giant moths. Shown is a baby Japanese monkey
for trailer videos and details.
