‘The Watch’: ‘Pennyworth’s Anna Chancellor & ‘Outlander’s James Fleet Join BBC America’s Terry Pratchett Adaptation
Pennyworth’s Anna Chancellor and Outlander’s James Fleet have joined the cast of BBC America’s The Watch, based on Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels.

The pair are the latest actors to join the BBC Studios and Narrativia-produced series, joining lead Richard Dormer.

Chancellor stars as Lord Vetinari, The Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, and architect of the city’s normalized wrongness and ramshackle system of governance, while Fleet stars as The Archchancellor, wizard, magical advisor, and the Head of the Unseen University.

Set in the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork, where crime has been legalized, The Watch is a “punk rock” drama. The eight-part series centers on a group of misfit cops as they rise up from decades of helplessness to save their corrupt city from catastrophe.

Elsewhere, Ingrid Oliver (Doctor Who) stars as the Head of The Assassins’ Guild, Doctor Cruces. Ruth Madeley (The Rook) stars as the wiry Throat,

Game of Thrones’ Richard Dormer to lead Discworld series The Watch

Game of Thrones star Richard Dormer is set to lead the cast of The Watch, the BBC’s upcoming live-action fantasy series based upon Terry Pratchett’s beloved Discworld novels.

Dormer is set to portray Sam Vimes, Captain of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, described as a group of “misfit cops [who] fight to save a ramshackle city of normalized wrongness from both the past and future in a perilous quest.”

“I’m so thrilled to be part of this brilliant madness and mayhem,” said Dormer, who recently portrayed the character of Beric Dondarrion in HBO’s Game of Thrones. “I was immediately drawn to the multitude of layers to Sam Vimes, and I find the dynamic between him and his band of disenfranchised comrades very compelling.”

Joining Dormer and the previously announced Adam Hugill (Constable Carrot) in the cast of the eight part series are Jo Eaton-Kent (Don’t Forget The Driver) as Constable Cheery,

“To really lean into the whole Spaghetti Western sound for this episode, I added instruments including trumpet, operatic vocals, whistling, ocarina, Spanish and baritone guitar to the signature pallet of ‘Blood Drive’ synths and sounds that are the foundation of the score,” says Gatt.

“The challenge in scoring this episode was balancing the line between leaning into the Spaghetti Western genre while still keeping the overall sound and feel of the ‘Blood Drive’ score,” he continues. “This was also a big
