On Friday 12th March 2015, the news broke via Terry's Twitter account that Sir Terry Pratchett had taken Death's arm and followed him through the doors and on to the black desert under the endless night.

It's been three years since that tweet was posted and since then, his name continues to be spoken everywhere.

[Memorial plaque]

It's been a year since many of us attended the unveiling of the Terry Pratchett memorial plaque at Beaconsfield library.

The library itself was an important place to Terry. He spent a lot of time in his childhood in the library reading everything he could lay his hands on.

[Discworld Series News]
Many of you would seen some articles floating around today about a Discworld series coming from the BBC.

There are no press releases from the BBC or Narrativia to back up what is being said in these articles.


What we can tell you is that we were at the Barbican in 2016 for Terry's memorial when The Watch was teased. In the two years since, Narrativia have been working on The Watch in parallel with Good Omens.

As soon as there is any solid news about the series we at Discworld Monthly will be among the first to report it.
