The late Terry Pratchett created a vivid, living and breathing fictional world with his long running Discworld novels, a series heaving with interesting characters and entertaining narrative threads. It’s the kind of book series that you would imagine lends itself well to film or television translation, but so far the made-for-TV iterations haven’t done Mr Pratchett’s work justice. That could change though, with BBC Studios announcing that there is a six-part miniseries based on the books in the works.
