August 12, 2020 | By | Reply More

There’s been a bit of a flap among social media users about the upcoming Discworld TV adaption of one of Terry Pratchett’s much-loved novels.

Mainly because fans don’t think it looks much like they imagined it.

Richard Dormer, Lara Rossi, Adam Hugill, Jo Eaton-Kent, Sam Adewunmi, and Marama Corlett feature in the new TV outing for this series.

Set in a fictional city where crime has been legalised, The Watch follows a group of misfit cops as they rise up from decades of helplessness to save their corrupt city from catastrophe.

The cast includes Game of Thrones’ Richard Dormer as Captain Sam Vimes, Adam Hugill (1917, World on Fire) as Constable Carrot, Jo Eaton-Kent (Don’t Forget The Driver), as Constable Cheery, Marama Corlett (Blood Drive, Sick Note) as Corporal Angua, Lara Rossi (Crossing Lines, Cheat) as Lady Sybil Ramkin, and Sam Adewunmi (The Last Tree, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man) as Carcer Dun, Anna Chancellor (Pennyworth, Trust) as Lord Vetinari, James Fleet (Outlander, The Vicar of Dibley) as The Archchancellor, Ingrid Oliver (Defending the Guilty, Doctor Who) as Doctor Cruces, Ruth Madeley (The Rook, Years and Years) as Throat, Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Deep State, Dynasty) as Captain John Keel, and Bianca Simone Mannie (Homeland, Saints & Strangers) as Wonse.

The Watch will be arriving on BBC and BBC America January 2021.
