The Watch (TV series)
« on: March 10, 2014, 02:44:50 PM »
I\'ve just listened to the first episode of Night Watch again.

(Incidentally, I\'ve no idea how one might logically find that episode guide page. I think I had to click at least 3 and possibly 4 times to find it. Even a Discworld wizard or magic ape librarian would get lost in the BBC website, I think!)

I\'d forgotten how good it was. Sam Vimes is my hero!

Browsing to find out more (and put off doing some work), I came across this:

The Watch (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote
The Watch is a British fantasy police procedural television series under development. It is to be based on the stories about the Ankh-Morpork City Watch from the Discworld series of fantasy novels by Terry Pratchett.

DevelopmentSetting and plot

Set in the fictional Discworld\'s principal city of Ankh-Morpork, The Watch has been described by Terry Pratchett as a \"Pratchett-style CSI\" It is to have an episodic storyline, following the format of a \"crime of the week\" as tackled by the city\'s police force under the command of Sam Vimes.


I suppose everybody else already knew about this?

I\'ll get me coat.

P.S. There\'s nothing definite about it here, although there\'s some more detail:

(As it happens, I\'m just reading Good Omens at the moment - as a light break from A Song of Ice and Fire, which was just getting too depressing, and too vast and complicated, although the writing remains good.)

P.P.S. I\'ve only just noticed the image they use at the top of that messageboard:



The craters on the turtle\'s back! And the martyred expression on his face!

Discworld is another series I have but haven\'t listened to yet. To be fair, I have a 300 gb external drive FULL of BBC Radio (not to mention whats on Bast*rd) and have only listened to a fraction of it.

I\'m saving most of it for The Zombie Apocalypse. :P

I\'ve just noticed that I use the word \'just\' too much. I\'d be hopeless on Ju... Only a Minute.

I hadn\'t noticed it. Then again, I\'m American and talk all wrong anyhow.
