On the subject of casting for the series I found this blog entry you might find interesting:

Kin Arad wrote:I saw Ben Miller in the series 'Death in Paradise', don't know if anyone else has seen it, but he plays an English detective who has to work on a small island in the Caribbean. He wasn't much like Vimes in personality - being quite stuck up - but he has the same view of wanting justice and catching the right criminal, and going with his gut instinct, which is always (or mostly) right.
So they're both policing roles, but i just have this mental image of Miller being this clean policeman which i cannot get out of my head - I shall have to see him in something else. I am curious to see how this turns out, even if it won't be for a while.
The Watch, also based on a Pratchett novel that will star Only Fools & Horses alumnus David Jason

"[...] The first is Good Omens, based on Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name; and The Watch, also based on a Pratchett novel. Only Fools and Horses actor David Jason is also lined up to star in another project."
So David Jason is /not/ specified as starring in either of the Pratchett projects, just another one that Prime Focus is producing. That's not to say that he /won't/ make an appearance (after Hogfather & TCOM), but that the line from DWM was slightly incorrect.
