Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree. There is the constant desire to find out where - where is the point where it all began. But much, much later than that, the Discworld was formed. Drifting onwards through space, atop four elephants on the shell of a giant turtle, the Great A'Tuin. 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 ...

Last night's episode
18 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
