Trivia

After the release of the trailer Rhianna Pratchett, daughter of Discworld author Terry Pratchett, commented on Twitter: "Look, I think it's fairly obvious that The Watch shares no DNA with my father's Watch. This is neither criticism nor support. It is what it is". Fantasy author Neil Gaiman, who was a personal friend of Pratchett, added that fans like the source material "so if you do something else, you risk alienating the fans on a monumental scale. It's not Batman if he's now a news reporter in a yellow trenchcoat with a pet bat". See more »

Terrible
3 January 2021 | by GazWatsonSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this, even though I was aware it wasn't going to really follow Terry's books. I figured if they were going to go their own way they must have a great story idea. I guess I was wrong, it's terrible, and what's with pantomime style acting!? Surely these actors can actually act? I can only presume they were given direction to act so badly, the bizarre affectations of Vimes make him difficult to watch, closely followed by Angua, almost equally as bad. The only character I've liked so far is Lady Sybil, which if this was a true attempt at a Terry Pratchet book would offend me that they'd changed the character so dramatically.
