Well, I was one of the many waiting with eager anticipation for the airing of Hogfather. I was also a little nervous that it wouldn't live up to expectations. I need not have worried.
It was truly an excellent adaptation, and my son and I watched the whole thing, riveted. They have captured Ankh Morpork perfectly. I was also fascinated to see who/how they would portray Nobby and, although he's not quite the thin, multi-hued creature often described, he IS Nobby. His character was perfect.
Susan was perfect, and I disagree on the death thing. I think it was very well done.
One minor comment. You really would have to have read a bit of Pratchett to really appreciate it. My wife, who hasn't, was a little bit lost because there is a panoply of characters that, if you've read any Ankh based books, you will already be familiar with.
