What would the Clue Characters sound like?

Post by Jonathan Green »

What do you think the Clue characters if they could talk?
Like any accent or what they would blandly sound like?

Mr. Boddy - Has both a Boston accent

Miss Scarlett - A young, seductive voice with a beautiful singing voice
something like Penelope "Bunty" Windermere from Father Brown
Koo Stark from Cluedo series 2
and Lysette Anthony from Cluedo Series 3

Col. Mustard - Something like Micheal Jayston's and John Standing's Mustard

Mrs. White - Scottish/C0ckney accent.
If she was English, she would sound like a younger Mollie Sugden with a mix of Joan Sims in there.

Mr. Green - An Italian-American. Speaks English, Italian, and French (his mother is French).
Also has a New Yorker accent as well, since he was born in New York City.
Something like Kristoffer Tabori & Stuart Milligan

Mrs. Peacock - She sounds elegant, like Lady Felicia from Father Brown and Susan Wooldridge.

Professor Plum - He's Pakistani, so he has an accent as well.

Dr. Orchid - Given that she's Japanese, she doesn't have a thick accent. She sounds more English that Japanese.

I always imagined a neutral Mid-Atlantic accent for Scarlet, Peacock, Plum, Black/Boddy, a Posh English accent for Mustard, a Cockney one for White, French for Brunette, Hungarian-broken English for Mme Rose, Thick USA Southern slur for Peach, Canadian nasal for Gray, Italian American 'godfather' Green.

Additionally:

French - Yvette
Irish - Rusty
Scottish - Mr. Ash
Minnesota/Wisconsin nasal - Mrs. Meadow-Brook
Sudan - Prince Azure
Switzerland/Burma - Lady Lavender
French -Canadian - Lord Gray

Lady Lavender - Like Janet Wong

Lord Gray - Welsh

Prince Azure - Arabic

Rusty Naylor - Irish

Mrs. Meadow-Brook - She's Black. Remember Fro-zone's wife Honey from The Incredibles? She sounds like that....Yep....

Miss Peach - A sweet voice. Southern Accent. A mix of Mara Flash's Peach (VCR Game) and Charlotte "Lottie" LaBouff (Disney's Princess & the Frog)

Monsieur Brunette - French

Dorothy Boddy/Madame Rose - Since I imagine her as a young novelist, she has a Boston accent like her brother John Boddy.

Madame Mystique - A medium. Hungarian, broken English voice.

If Green was a mobster, he would sound like Danny DeVito or John Goodman
If Green was a Reverend, Richard Wilson

Think of Dorothy Williams (from Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries) if she was American.

Make that Bunty Windermere and Lysette Anthony

After re-watching Cluedo Series 3, Lysette is far superior than Koo.

Here’s what I think Dr. Black/Sir Black sounds like: John Bowe’s Judge Turpin from the 2011/2012 London revival of Sweeney Todd.

That's a good look for Black. They look like they could be Dr. Black and Inspector Grey together.
