Terry Pratchett's Going Postal trailer

18 April 2010 9:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A two-part telemovie heading to our screens in May, here's the trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal...

Following on from the excellent TV adaptations of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather and The Colour Of Magic, another hugely popular Discworld novel is soon to be aired on Sky 1. Screening at the end of May, the next adaptation will be based upon Sir Pratchett's 33rd book in the Discworld series, Going Postal.

Starring Richard Coyle, (whom we're especially pleased to see return to telly in a big way in this production, as he was this writer's personal favourite nominee for Doctor Who back when we were all guessing and fancying actors' chances) the story revolves around Moist Von Lipwig (Coyle), a con artist set to hang for his crimes in the Discworld city-state of Ankh-Morpork. Saved from his grizzly fate, he's recruited to manage the now decrepit Ankh-Morpork postal service. »
