I was looking forward to the Hogfather calendar - or at least to a artist animated versions of previous years. This however consists of stills from the Hogfather film, out in December 2006. It is nothing more than a cheap reproduction of the promotional pictures which are available in the Sky magazine and other film mags. It is a sad promotional gimmick and a let down.

As promotional material it is extremely disappointing - as a calendar for a whole year it is worse - I have already assigned this to the back of the wardrobe and won't be buying the next one until I've seen the content.

Very big disappointment.

Well what a disappointment, being of a slightly older persuasion I am no longer allowed to ask for toys for Christmas, so I look forward to my annual dose of Discworld art (which has been getting steadily worse as it seems to be drawn by artists who in recent calendars have no idea what a dDiscworld book looks like(November 2006 a prime example of how not to do it).

Next years calendar however takes the biscuit the plate it came on and indeed the packet, taking the Discworld faithful for granted on such a shameless commercial for the forthcoming SKY program leaves a bad taste in the mouth, as mentioned by another reviewer photos of actors who bear no resemblance to our fevered imaginations image of beloved characters is just wrong.

I would say dont buy this but I'm so depressed by it all I just cant be bothered to proffer anymore of an opinion on the subject.

I far prefer the normal format of illustrations by different artists and adore the work of Paul Kirby, which means this calendar was always going to be a let down. Then to cap it all the holes for hanging the thing up are ridiculously small! We had to cut the head off a small nail to hang it, but this has led to the paper ripping, the calendar now hangs upside down at an ungainly angle! Bigger holes please and go back to the wonderful artists that you used to use!

I think that some Discworld fans really need to get over themselves. Pratchett did make a mistake by allowing Kirby to illustrate the covers of his novels with wild, ugly, childish creatures and Paul Kidby, though better, is still only a few steps up. This I think is the problem with trying to make a real person film. No one really has any idea what the Disc the Discworld looks like. Pratchett likes the film. So, I guess if it is the author's vision you should like it or just continue to see grotesque images of Kirby's creatures as you read. I liked it. Faces for the characters at last.

It is about time that the Discworld came to life. I love Paul Kirby's images but as an adult I tend to imagine the characters as people not cartoons! The cartoons were/are fantastic for kids imaginations but with the new technology it is possible to make them become real - and The Hogfather calendar shows that...no ones complaining about the cartoon/real people transition in Harry Potter.

The film was a hit and the calendar reflects that..its more exciting to think it could be a real world with real people, stop whinging!

I bought the calendar with the greatest excitement and was not disappointed...loved the image of Terry on the front in his magical moment in his world!
