Tweeting before his arrival, the actor and singer was interviewed by Simon Hoban near the end of Tony Snell in the Morning, where he spoke of his enthusiasm on joining the show.
I have pinched myself really, its a cracking job, I'm absolutley over the moon to be doing it and I've just had a ball really and I've been recording it now for... it'll be a year in June so its gone so quickly and I'm having a great time.
The Liverpudlian then went on to discuss how he wanted to approach his style of narration while also keeping the legacy alive.
You try and put your own stamp on it, but I think I've tried to keep an essence of what Ringo [Starr] and Michael [Angelis] did before me because I don't think people like too much change so I've tried to stay true to the show's roots.
As I say its a great legacy for my kids and my grandkids and... I hope to be doing it for a long time to come.
Mark later talked of how the TV series models would have been outdated in the modern age, his feelings towards the animation and the storylines that have moved with the times.
