This one is a no-brainer--you can't outmaster John Hurt in any role.  Hurt gives Hazel a firm, but compassionate voice, one of a great leader.  There are no glaring problems with his effort as Hazel.  He really liked the story too!  In his defense, Ian Shaw also gave Hazel the same leader-esque voice to our main protagonist in the show.  Shaw sounds much younger, and gives Hazel a youthful sound, while Hurt was more of a voice of experience and time.  Hurt just worked better when it came to looking for a voice of a leader.

Hurt wins the round! :)
