    Iain Glenn would be perfect as Vimes. Got the right rough look with hidden depths. Always thought French and Saunders would make good witches! Charles Dance for Vetinari.

    Don’t know what the names of all these actors and actresses are but I think they could do the characters. Also don’t know if any of them are no longer with us, apologies if any are now deceased!

    I love Detritus he/she cracks me up. I also love the vampire photographer I can't think of his name right now. But, my favorite is Rincewind his ability to preserve himself in all situations in the face of his cowardice is truly priceless.

    I also like Samuel Vimes especially in the most recent book "Thud!". Seeing him as a dad and family man gives him a whole new dimention. I am such a Pratchett fan I even bought the companion book, "Where's My Cow" the illustrations are great!

    I love Terry Pratchett he is one of my all time favorite authors. In that same genre but more contemporary I love Christopher Moore his newest book, "A Dirty Job" is a lot like "Mort" only funier if you can imagine that

    Try explaining the Marvel Cinematic Universe... very complicated yet... big success...

    This is very true. My husband has repeatedly attempted to explain all the characters and links to me but my eyes start to glaze over after about 15 minutes of this.

    He totally insisted that I watch Avengers Civil War before I could watch the film Black Panther
    (which is what I actually wanted to see). Apparently I couldn’t possibly enjoy the latter without knowing the story from the former.

    Bored stiff throughout ACW but still enjoyed BP.

  12. Definitely Gaspode, who displays the best part of dogliness

    At last, at TP adaptation I can watch i.e. no David Jason.

    I never felt he was right for Rincewind...

    I didn't mind him as Albert.

    I see David Jason on screen and I expect to see a performance by David Jason. He's overexposed.

    David Tennant could have done rincewind very naturally I think.

    I will always love Vimes. I love that he grows, he represents the complexity and conflicts of human existence, his sarcasm. I also find that, out of all characters, his is the one with the perspective and gift of summing up a stupidity in a single sentence.

    I just read Nightwatch and Sam Vimes is a superb character. Flawed and yet upstanding... a fully rounded character.

    I have a desire for Jason Issac in the lead role for the BBC. I think he'd do it well.
