After filming, Hogfather author Terry Pratchett was stopped by customs at an airport in Australia. He had a large box of plastic teeth from the set, which distressed the officials. He explained the situation, and pointed out that they should probably be more concerned with the large box marked 'DEATH.' (Told to con-goers at MidSouthCon 2007 in Memphis, TN) See more »

[introduction, describing the origin of Discworld]
It was some time after its creation when most people forgot that the very oldest stories of the beginning are, sooner or later, about... blood. At least, that's one theory. The philosopher Didactylos has suggested an alternative hypothesis: "Things just happen. What the hell."

Who was the narrator? Ian Richardson perhaps? There is no listing here. Over-all I enjoyed the adaptation. I thought the in-jokes from other Pratchett books clever but i missed a couple of them as i haven't read all of his books yet. The visual jokes were hilarious i.e. " anthill inside " and the egg timer on HEX . The acting and characterisation was spot on. Sir Davids portrayal of Albert was as sarcastic as the books with his usual aplomb. As for death ....... excellent down to the sharp gardening implement and the voice of granite slabs crashing together. Next one to do has got to be weird sisters ......but that is just my opinion.
