    Hogfather is a magnificent piece of work. It captures Pratchett's eccentric sense of humour and strong sense of sentimentality. Acting inHogfather is a magnificent piece of work. It captures Pratchett's eccentric sense of humour and strong sense of sentimentality. Acting in general is very well done overall, but Michelle Dockery as Susan is inspired.

    For Pratchett fans, it's by far the best attempt to bring his books to the screen, and for those new to Pratchett it's a wonderful demonstration of why he's worth reading.

    Sadly, it's a little hard to come by. It was on Netflix at one point, but can be purchased for download at a very reasonable price on Amazon.
