Zeb provided an authoritative and rich voiceover on two landmark Classic DOCTOR WHO documentaries. I sincerely look forward to employing him again in the future as his work and attitude were both outstanding.

One of his real talents is an ability to condense complex ideas into a few words; he then pulls you in and makes you want to watch.

Zeb Soanes was a beguiling story-teller. There was a relaxed naturalness about his perfectly enunciated delivery of the texts, an ease which belied the thorough preparation which is necessary to ensure such a fluent and captivating presentation.
