"Pratchett fans CANT miss it!"
4 stars"

Review by S&L on 28th July, 2011

Highly entertaining story with a generous running time of just over 3 hours! Sets, costumes, performances all lush. Guaranteed to please. If you aren't familiar with Pratchett's Disc World, you couldn't hope for a better introduction.

"Darkly humorous"
4 stars"

Review by Rima on 2nd October, 2015

Darkly humorous mini series.

"A must for fans of Pratchett"
5 stars"

Review by Simon on 3rd March, 2013

A true and well-adapted two-part cinematic depiction of the most-shoplifted author in Britain's moder­n works.

I bought this for my father, who is a serious Pratchett fan (has a bookshelf-shrine devoted to them), and hoped that it would live up to the books in his eyes. It did.

After watching it, I can see why. Although some of the special effects (Golems) were a little low budget, the story is fast-paced, meaningful and scripted more or less like one of the Author's stage adaptations. It was a hilarious surprise to see actors such as Charles Dance (Twyin Lannister) and Andrew Sachs (Manuel from Fawlty towers) popping in from time to time and give good performances. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film.

"CAPTIVATING!"
5 stars"

Review by Margaret on 24th February, 2012

Terry Pratchett's en­thralling story-telling is portrayed in this D.V.D with an engrossing realism. This wonderful story is handled expertley, well acted & completely involving.

"Amazing rendition of great author's novel"
5 stars"

Review by Karen on 4th January, 2012

A great well cast set of characters and terrific interpretation of the story. A must buy if you like watching stuff with your teenagers and others as a family evening.

"Fantastic entertainment and easy to watch"
5 stars"

Review by natasha on 18th November, 2011

Its a very easy to follow for all novices being introduced to the disc world. Very entertaining.

Description

A lavish television adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s hugely popular Going Postal novel.

Our hero, the charming but condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into... a government job? By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as Postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork. Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may prove an impossible task, what with literally mountains of decades-old undelivered mail clogging every nook and cranny of the broken-down post office. Worse still, Moist could swear the mail is talking to him...
