??? (one line only, possibly Peter Kelamis, Samuel Vincent, or an unknown voice actor from Blue Water Studios)

David Tennant

??? (some lines only)

Just like Tom, Moose, and Bella, Buck's voice was kept in all versions, but his voice had to be redubbed by a soundalike at some points in the Amazon dub. The Ocean dub only had one line from Buck redubbed by a person that sounds nothing like his original voice, due to the voice directors not understanding what Buck said in one scene.

Samuel Vincent originally completed his lines for Buck Douglas in the Ocean dub, but the studio didn't want any critisicm from David Tennant fans due to typecasting, so they decided to keep Tennant's voice.

According to a blog, one person mentioned that an unknown voice actor from Blue Water Studios redubbed Buck's one line due to her claiming that she once heard the same voice in the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball.

Buck's Cameraman ??? Ian James Corlett ??? It is unknown who voiced the cameraman in both the UK and Amazon dubs of the movie.

Reception

When the trailer for the US dub was uploaded to the YouTube channel "Fireman Sam US", there were many negative reactions from fans of the original UK dub of "Fireman Sam" due to the voices and possibly the voice acting. Although, they were impressed with David Tennant's performance as Buck Douglas being kept in the dub.

Dub Edits/Changes

The script is faithful to the UK dub, but with minor differences. There were no visual edits.

Trivia

Buck Douglas' UK voice was kept in this dub, but only a few lines were redubbed by a soundalike.

Samuel Vincent was originally going to voice Buck Douglas in this dub, since he did a good voice acting impression of David Tennant's voice, but the dubbing studio (Ocean Productions) thought that keeping Tennant's voice would be a good idea, since Tennant is popular in the US and they wan't to avoid criticism of typecasting.

This dub uses a different cast. Only Andrew Hodwitz and Sarah Strange reprised their roles. The same voice cast would later reprise their roles in a Canadian dub of New Fireman Sam and Fireman Sam: Hollywood Hero for their airings on Canadian syndicated/pay television. The old cast returned for the US dub of the two projects, but was dubbed by a different studio. The same old US cast would later redub Fireman Sam: Alien Alert for US release on Amazon Prime as an option.

Saffron Henderson recorded her voice as James three times. One using her "Oxnard" voice from Hamtaro, one using her "Gohan" voice from Dragon Ball Z, and the final one using an original voice that sounds like James' UK voice actor.

According to a blog, one person mentioned that an unknown voice actor from Blue Water Studios redubbed Buck Douglas' one line due to her claiming that she once heard the same voice in the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball. She also mentioned that the voice was a high-pitched British accent when he said the redubbed line. The same voice would later be heard as additional off-screen voices in the Canadian pay TV dub of New Fireman Sam.
