Now this looks like it’s going to be rather good. Sky TV are putting on a live-action version of Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather, one of his excellent Discworld novels that has a suitable theme for the time of year. Made with the full cooperation and actual participation of the man himself, it’s being shown on Sunday 17 and Monday 18 December on Sky One. No details of overseas showings or DVD release dates seem to be available as yet.
The official site has loads of information on the production, plenty of pictures, and I’d suggest you look at the video clips. The 12 days of Hogswatch feature Death interviewing various people to get some background on Discworld and the characters. And probably more stuff, as each part reveals more.
