That video is a year old (uploaded 25 Oct 2012) so does that make it qualify as an "update"?

Oops, didn't notice the year :oops:

The info was new to me (13 hr-long eps, post-Snuff setting etc) so I didn't check too hard on the date - I assumed I was pretty up to date on Watch TV news! Apparently not :)

Soooo..... Is this project dead? News seems to have crawled to a halt. I wouldve expected production announcements by now at least. Would be a shame if it has, was looking forward to ole Vimes on screen.

It does seem to have ground to a halt, doesn't it?

(Welcome to the boards, by the way!!).

I've had a look on Twitter and Narrativia have a Twitter account, but have not posted anything yet.

I have dropped a tweet to TP via Twitter and asked if there is any news on The Watch and Good Omens.

Narrativia appears to be dead. Since the announcement of its creation in 2012 there has been

    A website with just a holding jpg image and no content
    A twitter feed which has sent no tweets
    A facebook account with no posts from its owners

Much as I would like to think things are going on; after 18 months absolutely nothing has happened and nothing appears to be happening
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

A pity, coz Good Omens is one of my very favourite books, and I'd have loved to have seen The Watch series.

Thanks, good to be here!

Well it would appear that the project has lost quite a lot of steam then. Thats a real shame. Considering the current offering of TV and film I really think a Pratchett adaptation would fit in quite nicely!

Couldn't be any worse than Splash, The Voice, etc, etc, etc.

When I spoke to Rob (and Rod Brown was there) at Hogwatch he said that an annoucement was close as they were just tying up a few things. :mrgreen:

I heard that scripting was well underway for The Watch when I saw Sir Terry, Rob, and Rod on stage at Brighton a few months ago. They also revealed that Good Omens is also in the pipeline. I'm guessing that, at the moment, it is a case of no news is good news. :)
