MORT under my belt already and it's fabulous...he couldn't find his arse with both hands.🤣🤣🤣
I had heard Wyrd Sisters already and THAT one I know is incredible.Nice to have the bonus play Only You Can Save Mankind.
Roll on vol.2
Sound effects,and acting top notch.
I know the BBC did an amazing 😁😁😁😁 job of Maurice And His Amazing Educated Rodents
The cast are all competent actors and deserve better than to be in such utter rubbish as this. There seems to be no attempt to provide some way of including the "asides" , descriptions and explanations that the late, great Sir Terry did so well in his wonderful books. It is as if the Producer just lifted the dialog straight from the books and could not be bothered to listen to how it all falls flat with only the dialog.
I suppose in a perverse way it is amazing that they could make any of Sir Terry's books sound boring, confusing and just plain unfunny. Not many people could do that but they have!!
I held off opening the set until I thought I could have the time to enjoy them without distractions but did so too long as I could not return them and get a refund. I have wasted my money.
Utter rubbish and from the BBC as well? Their radio adaptations of Richard Adam's HHGTTG were excellent but this is truly awful.
I gave this product one star only because I could not be assured of giving them zero stars which would have done them justice.
The Terry Pratchett Radio Drama Collection is wonderfully acted, sensibly abridged and a wonderful 'Movie for Your Ears' to quote the late much missed, Frank Zappa.
No one does these comedy dramas better than the BBC.
You get seven delightful plays. Heck the price is worth it just for the brilliant Guards Guards! And The Night Watch.
If you've read the books it's amazing at just how quick you accept and welcome the voices, Carrot becomes Carrot, Same Vimes becomes the voice of the grizzled, seen it all before and survived Captain of the watch.
The rest are superbly performed and tight direction moves the action and the comedy (and this is in spades from the wonderful pen and imagination of the beloved Terry Pratchett.
This is a fine tribute to the much missed Terry and that is no mean achievement.
There are other ways to reduce cost, the Harry Potter CDs are in individual sleeves in a small outer case and that works brilliantly. Sadly this BBC set packaging won't stand the test of time.
