Sebastian Ranch on 3 January 2020 rated it 8/10 and wrote:
A truly satisfying adaptation.
It remained as true to the book as is (in)humanly possible and kept the charm and wit all the way through to the end. The ending had been changed slightly but it was fitting and felt right.
I'll put this out there I'm down to my last two Pratchett books and have been putting off reading as I know that's it. I have read none of his non Discworld books or collaberations so will be taking a peek at these, this included.
So knew nothing, but having watched all Pratchetts TV, film adaptations this was more of the same style and quality. Some people are giving this low marks comparing it to other "Amazon" supernatural fantasy series. That is unfair, this comes from a totally different place to what they have to offer.
I'm sure Pratchett fans and lovers of the British style drama, humour will enjoy it, if you don't like that type of quirkiness don't bother.
6 episodes was about right, though it may have been tighter and better with 4 as it wanders off occasionally, especially the climactic last 2 episodes, but I liked it.
MGN Rating 7.5/10
