Project Main Details

Sherlock Holmes sister Mycroft Holmes 
Mycroft Holmes is Sherlock Holmes' sister. She is about 30 - 35 years old and a genius. She is tall and beautiful and has a commanding voice for she is used to being in charge of the British Secret Service - she is sort of like the female Q in the most recent Bond movies but younger. Her voice should be natural, commanding, and Victorian in character.

Mycroft has some fairly long but somewhat dry monologues which have to be delivered in a voice that doesn't sound mechanical or computerized - she is a brilliant, beautiful women and should sound commanding but not domineering.

This is a character in a audiobook with about 10 - 20 min's of dialog. Here is her description from the manuscript of the book:

" Mycroft Holmes rose with alacrity from behind an enormous rosewood desk, and came forward to greet us as Holmes introduced me. As all mention of Mycroft's appearance had entirely escaped Holmes' description of her, I had vaguely formed a mental picture of a stern, imperious feminine replica of my friend.

In fact, at first sight Mycroft Holmes was almost disturbingly beautiful; tall, statuesque in figure, graceful in motion, and possessed of a subtle element of quiet charm. But in her attractive face I recognized the alert steel-gray eyes and the keenness of expression that I knew so well in my friend Holmes, and vividly called to my attention the dominant mind that commanded such influence over the affairs of the Empire. "

Script Details

Her voice should be natural, commanding, and Victorian in character.  

This submarine—or rather the plans for its construction—has been the most jealously guarded of all government secrets. Perhaps I had better give you a brief sketch of its history. The submarine was developed some twenty years ago by a renegade Northern Indian prince calling himself Captain Nemo, who used the vessel to cause considerable headaches among the international shipping routes. By providence the Captain and his ship were reported as lost several years ago. Two years ago, to be exact, we learned of its location under the seas, and a top-secret expedition was dispatched to seek out and recover the ship, and learn its secrets. According to the reports submitted to me at the time, the vessel, when discovered , was too damaged to be moved, so the party was obliged to study and document its every detail sub undis. When the observations were completed, the ship was blasted to oblivion. Meticulous plans were drawn for its reconstruction, and special Engine cards were created for the purpose of storing the vital information. These were kept in an elaborate strongroom in a confidential office adjoining the Woolwich Arsenal, and never removed from the premises. If the chief Navy constructor desired to consult them, even he was constrained to go personally to the office in Woolwich.”
