First Images from Terry Pratchett's The Watch BBC Series are Finally Here


There is little doubt that Terry Pratchett fans are already excited about the upcoming BBC series based on the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. Luckily, we now have our first look at The Watch starring Game of Thrones' Richard Dormer as Sam Vimes.

The photos were released by BBC America and they feature the main players in the upcoming series. Check them out below.

First up, we have Dormer as Vimes along with Marama Corlett, who will portray Corporal Angua. We're loving how Vimes has his ever-present cigar and that tough look on his face.

Angua will be watching over Constable Carrot, who will be played by Adam Hugill. Carrot is actually a new recruit who grew up with dwarves.

Finally, we have an awesome look at Lara Rossi's Lady Sybil Ramkin, who is the last scion of Ankh-Morpork's nobility. In this particular photo, Lady Sybil may have found a bad guy and is in the middle of one of her acts of chaotic vigilantism.

The first images from The Watch are certainly a surprise but we're still loving how it looks gritty and awesome at the same time. Needless to say, we can't wait to see the first trailer for the upcoming series.

The Watch has not yet been given an official release date. However, it is expected to air on BBC later this year.
