    I can't wait to see it. But it's been so long since I read the book I can't remember the story.

    I hope it's not a let down.

    Must remember to wrap presents while watching it!

    I hated Grace Adams in BB this year, but give her her dues, shes bloody good at this circus malarky

    cheers, Caz

    I didn't watch the making of it for some reason. Cant remember why.

    But i always wait for something good to come on the telly to sit and watch to make wrapping presents less boring so this is it for me tonight. i usually have a bottle of wine while I'm doing it too, it was so tempting to buy one while I was shopping today but resisted so having to break a tradition. (another tradition is finishing the wrapping at 2 am christmas morning! hope to break that one this year too)

    How are you watching two things at once??? do you have one of those clever telly's or do you keep flicking between channels?

    GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR WRAPPING, JUST DONT GET TOO ENGROSSED IN THE FILM THAT YOU PUT THE WRONG TAGS ON THE PRESENTS.

    Oh and Hogfather is on again tonight ! I did like it last night although I don't know why it was quite that narrative.

    Sniff - two out of three kids didn't want to watch it, so I'm in the other room with them and missing it. Hopefully will be on again soon. :(

    I don't have sky ....

    .... so I'm waiting for it to come on to terrestrial television!

    We drove down to Wales listening to the book tape of 'Going Postal' last Christmas - it really helped the hours pass more quickly! It reminds me to get another one out of the library this week - I fancy listening to Mort (I read it years ago - the kids'll love it.):D

    Feels funny reading this. Terry Pratchett is my cousin, my mother and his mother are sisters, his mother is my Godmother not my Hogfather!!

    Ashamed to say I have never read his books, apart from Maurice the Amazing Cat which is a children's book and was really good.

    Amy, my daughter has read them all and has all the computer games.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching this, was really good - could relate to our family sense of humour with some of his comments through the characters, especially death. David Jason was brilliant as ever.

    Did anyone think that Teatime sounded like Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka even the scary laugh:eek:

    The sad thing is Terry's father, David Pratchett died a few months ago, it would have been lovely it he had lived to see this.

    Cool claim to fame - sorry to hear about his dad though :(

    Apparently Mark Warren (?) did audition having seen Willy Wonka and said it was in his mind! ;)

    wow you should read some of your cousins books theyre great! lol I haven't read them all but have read a few and have 1 of the games.

    I must say though I remembered this story as soon as it started, the book was great but the programme bored me a bit. Maybe if I hadn't read it first I'd have liked it better.
