””“He’d definitely be back on board for another adaptation, he says, and has a favourite in mind for a future Terry Pratchett project – 1987 novel Mort.“Yeah, that’s one of my favourites.

Colin chimes in on radio roles with this too, which makes me ridiculously happy:
Clearly radio drama can now attract blockbuster talent – and Morgan thinks the genre has a certain appeal for actors that on-screen roles cannot deliver.
“I think TV is a fantastic medium right now because of what you can do visually, it’s phenomenal and it’s just getting better and better, but in a way there’s no beating the personal image you can create in your head, with those personal aspects, which you can only get from reading or radio dramas.”
He added: “It’s great. It’s an opportunity to reinvent yourself in a way that you sometimes can’t really do on screen – in fact, that you definitely can’t do on screen. You can’t take on the qualities of a character that you’d never be cast in, and no one would ever cast you in.”
