Having just got around to watching the Colour of Magic adaptation, it turned out to be as disappointing as I’d expected it to be. Hogfather, while not perfect was at least fun and a little more sober, but this was pants from start to, erm, about two-thirds where I got bored.
A tired old actor who’s completely wrong for the part and doesn’t understand that ‘fantasy’ means everything has to be hammed up as much as possible, a basic premise to fit two novels into one episode each… I’m sure the money’s gone to a good cause, but I doubt Mr P is exactly proud of the end result. Going Postal might of up better, unless David Jason decides he wants the title role there again, but TCOM was rushed rubbish. Anyone disagree?
