In the novel, the character of Rincewind the Wizard, judging by the age of his alter ego in another dimension, is implied to be a relatively young man in his mid-30s. In this mini-series, he was played by Sir David Jason
, who was 68 at the time of filming. This is not the first time Rincewind has been portrayed as much older than his book counterpart: in the Josh Kirby book covers of the Discworld series, Rincewind is also depicted as an aged, white-bearded man. See more

That's old Twoflower for you. He just appreciates beauty in his own way. I mean, if a poet sees a daffodil, he stares at it and then writes a long poem. But Twoflower would wander off and buy a book on botany, and then as he reads it he would tread on the daffodil.
Both episodes had the same end-credits cast list although some characters only appeared in one episode. See more
