Trivia

The last line, spoken by Terry Pratchett (as a postman), is "That's a bit of an embuggerance". This is a reference to Sir Terry's diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease, which he's always referred to as 'A Wretched Embuggerance". See more »

Quotes

Ridcully: You the type to burn a book, Lipwig?
Moist Von Lipwig: No.
Ridcully: Why?
Moist Von Lipwig: Because you just don't *do* that sort of thing!
Ridcully: Correct. Books must be treated with respect, we feel that in our bones, because words have power. Bring enough words together they can bend space and time.

Whimsical and Wacky
27 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

It's not really a period drama so much as a costume drama- It's got a magical, Dickensian feel with the Victorian inspired costumes and settings. The world is located on the back of four elephants who are on a giant turtle…I haven't read any of the series but from what I've read about it and from watching this adaptation, it's a comical cross between Dickens and fantasy.

This series definitely made me interested in Terry Pratchett's works! Don't know if I'll have time to read them any time soon but one day it would be fun! I think if you like fantasy series like Harry Potter and such as well as costume dramas you should like this show.
