Hogfather Revisited

Having enjoyed the Sky TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather, I just had to take the book from the shelf[1] and read it again for the first time in a few years.

And now I’ve read it again, I’m even more impressed with how well the TV version was done. Some scenes were omitted, some events were rearragned a bit – in the book, we see Death when he’s already standing in for the Hogfather, while the TV version leads into that, which makes sense for a different medium thingy. But overall, it stuck to the book like a very sticky thing that’s been playing with superglue. Huge chunks of dialogue were taken direct, which goes a long way towards explaining how it felt like Terry’s work.

So, TV people, that’s one down, lots to go. Would you like to have a crack at Guards! Guards! next? That would be cool, as it’s got dragons in it. :bouncy:
