Terry Pratchett?s Going Postal
The third Discworld novel to be brought to the small screen, Terry Pratchett?s Going Postal is available on DVD and Blu-ray from 23rd August. Released by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the much-lauded satirical adaptation stars David Suchet and Richard Coyle.
When con-artist Moist von Lipwig (Richard Coyle: Coupling, Strange, Prince of Persia) is sent to the hangman?s noose, he doesn?t expect to get beaten at his own game and fall through the trapdoor into a Government job. Given the position of Postmaster, a role that hasn?t been occupied in years, by ruler of Ankh-Morpork Lord Vetinari (Charles Dance: Gosford Park, Bleak House), it?s his daunting task to get the dilapidated Postal Service up and running again.
Standing in his way is the Grand Trunk Clacks communication cartel and its leader, Reacher Gilt (David Suchet: Poirot, The Way We Live Now). Taking on the evil monopoly, Moist must rise to challenge, ensure the delivery of the mail, restore hope to the people of Ankh-Morpok and even get the girl!
Going Postal is a veritable feast for the eyes, with stunning production, lavish sets and lashings of imagination. It boasts a stellar supporting cast that includes Tamsin Greig, Claire Foy, John Henshaw, Steve Pemberton and Andrew Sachs.
The DVD is available as a single disc version or a limited-edition two-disc set or Blu-ray packed with exclusive behind the scenes extras including; a gag reel, deleted scenes, director and producer commentaries and cast interviews.
