Rather than hijacking the other thread, I thought I'd start a new one to discuss the cast choices that Jason mentioned here: :laugh:

Jason said:
Ok, here is is then. I've been given permission:

The latest cast list is as follows:

Richard Coyle – Moist Von Lipwig
David Suchet – Reacher Gilt
Charles Dance – Lord Vetinari
Claire Foy – Adora Belle Dearheart
Andrew Sachs – Tolliver Groat
Tamsin Greig – Miss Cripslock
Steve Pemberton – Rufus Drumknott
John Henshaw – Mr Pony
Madhav Sharma – Horsefry
Jimmy Yuill – Mr Spools
Ian Bonar – Stanley
Paul Barber – Dave
Adrian Schiller – Gryle
Daniel Cerquiera – Trooper
Ingrid BolsØ Berdal – Sergeant Angua
Kerry Shale – Mr Pump (voice)
Ben Crompton – Mad Al
Asif Khan – Sane Alex
Alex Parks – Roger
Sheila Shand Ginns – Old Lady


Note change of Vetinari - Charles Dance rather than Jeremy Irons.

A photo of Moist and a drawing of a Mountain Clacks tower can be seen at:

Jason can you confirm the name for 'Sheila Shand Ginns'- should it be Gibbs? o_O

I'd love to see this, or any of the other discworld TV adaptations. Are there any plans on bringing these to the U.S.? I know that The Hogfather and The Colour of Magic are available, but I can't find them anyplace except Amazon.

I believe they were shown on US TV - but on a cable channel. o_O

You might want to try Play.com who deliver worldwide for FREE! They have it for as little as £12.99 - but unless you have a multi region DVD player, you are going to have a problem.

Ingrid BolsØ Berdal never heard of her before but looking at her she gets my vote :)

Until someone converts these to Region 1, you're best off to try and find them on youtube.

I have the Hogfather in Region 2 and we can't watch it at all.

Can't you convert your DVD players to multi regional? I have just done mine. See my DVD thread.

Hogfather is available on region 1 and now so is Color of Magic. :laugh:
