Daniel Ashley Roberts  | 65 comments Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone here has watched the new documentary/ dramatisation of Terry Pratchetts life. I found it both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Pratchett is portrayed by Paul Kaye, who does a stunning job of playing Pratchett.
I will warn you now, if like me you loved Sir Terry you will find this very emotional, the interview with Neil Gaiman being a particular gut punch moment.
Not sure how anyone outside of the UK can watch this, but I imagine those that want to watch this stunning programme will find perfectly Legitimate way of doing so.

Alan Denham (alandenham) | 138 comments I almost didn't watch it - I didn't think it could be anything but mawkish and superficial, and I certainly didn't think any production team that I had previously seen work from could handle it as it needed to be done.
I was wrong. I watched it, and I am gad I did. It wasn't handled perfectly, but it was enormously better than what I had expected. Well done.

That would explain why I hadn't seen it trailed or promoted in the TV guide. Oh well, I obviously missed it first time around ...
