No! It was terrible! Teatime just wasn't right at all, I just refuse to let it spoil the book for me :(

'Course, that's just one opinion :wink:

BTW if David Jason gets the part of Moist, I will definitely be writing letters.

Tea Time is particularly evil and dark , darker than in the book to my eyes! And creepy........ :shock:


The actor who played Tea Time, Marc Warren, is brilliant at creepy characters.

David Jason won't be in Going Postal. They were going to do Sorcery next with David Jason as Rincewind but other work commitments meant he was not available so they decided to do Going Postal instead.

Yes, thank god Del Boy Trotter can't kill Rincewind's persona again....... I thought Nigel Planer was nearer Rincewind and he has voiced Him in the unabridged audio book so should know the part better.

I recently finished watching the TV adaptation of the Colour of Magic, and I have to say that I was very impressed.

Although I was sceptical at first, I think the producers did a great job in adapting The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic into a manageable screenplay.

Contrary to what seems to be the majority opinion here, I was really taken by Sir David Jason's portrayal of Rincewind. I had read a lot of negative comment on his casting and performance in the film as going against most people's interpretation of Rincewind. I have to say that I think he gave an immensely enjoyable and perfectly credible interpretation of his own. I admit that it took me a while to warm to Rincewind in the TV adaptation, but by the end I felt quite a strong connection with the character and a good understanding of him.

I also loved the casting and performance of Tim Curry as Trymon. His scenes were most likely the points when I laughed most during the film. Particular credit should go to the man who played the second Astrozoologist in Krull!

All in all, there were a couple of moments in the film which ran contrary to my interpretations from my own readings of the novels. Nevertheless, I think it's great that I've been given some fresh perspectives to consider and enjoy.

I hope that the next TV adaptation is as successful. I shall definitely be watching this one again soon!

Very best wishes,

Andrew

For me, David Jason IS Albert, I feel that Nigel Planer would have been better as Rincewind, he has the confused and worried looks down pat.

I can't think of anyone better than Jeremy Irons as the Patrician, except perhaps the guy who plays Snape in the Harry Potter films.

Terence Stamp could have played Vetinari.

Or Mrs Cake :twisted: Did you see him in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?

But yeah Stampy'd make a suitably mean and cynical Patrician
