Game Of Thrones star Richard Dormer will lead the cast in a series inspired by the Discworld novels.

Sir Terry Pratchett’s work is being adapted by the BBC Studios for new comedy-drama, The Watch.

Dormer, who played Beric Dondarrion in Game Of Thrones, will star in the new show set in Ankh-Morpork.

The eight-part series follows the law enforcement efforts in the crime-ridden fictional city.

Dormer said: “I’m so thrilled to be part of this brilliant madness and mayhem. I was immediately drawn to the multitude of layers to Sam Vimes, and I find the dynamic between him and his band of disenfranchised comrades very compelling.”

Sir Terry Pratchett is in the bloodstream of popular cultureWriter Simon Allen

The City Watch of Sir Terry’s fictional city state was introduced first in Guards! Guards!, which outlined the bumbling heroism of the fantasy law enforcers, with Vimes leading the group.

Writer Simon Allen said: “Sir Terry Pratchett is in the bloodstream of popular culture.

“He has a distinctly British kind of literary heart and humour but his ideas are defiantly human and universal.

“The Watch is a hopeful show that believes it’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

“I can’t wait for everybody to see our joyously brilliant cast light candles and, of course, flamethrowers.”

The Watch starts filming in South Africa on September 30.

EXCLUSIVE: Trainspotting and Once Upon A Time star Robert Carlyle and The Crown’s Victoria Hamilton are to star in a British political drama for Sky. Catherine The Great producer New Pictures is making six-part series Cobra about what happens in the corridors of power during a time of national emergency. Pretty good timing given what’s going on with Brexit.

Carlyle stars as British Prime Minister Robert Sutherland, while Hamilton plays his Chief of Staff Anna Marshall. Game of Thrones’ Richard Dormer plays as Fraser Walker, the Head of the Civil Contingencies Secretariat, Killing Eve’s David Haig stars as Home Secretary Archie Glover-Morgan, Better Things’ Marsha Thomason stars as Francine Bridge MP and Broadchurch’s Lucy Cohu plays the Prime Minister’s wife Rachel Sutherland.

The series, which has begun production ahead of a fall launch, deals with an unfolding national emergency that threatens to engulf the country as the COBRA committee, a team comprised of Britain’s leading experts, crisis contingency planners and most senior politicians fights to ensure the protection of the British people. The Prime Minister and his Chief of Staff must contend with impossible political decisions, whilst also wrestling with ferociously pressured personal lives. Not only do they bear the weight of public expectation and their family’s needs; they must also be mindful of their political opponents who will use any sign of weakness as an opportunity to strike.

Cobra was written by The Tunnel Sabotage and Strike: The Cuckoo’s Calling writer Ben Richards and is produced by All3Media-owned New Pictures, which is behind Starz’ The Spanish Princess. Exec produced by Richards, Charlie Pattinson, Jonathan Young and Nicola Larder and was commissioned by Cameron Roach, Sky’s Director of Drama and Sky Studios and Zai Bennett, Director of Programming for Sky Entertainment UK & Ireland with Gabriel Silver as commissioning editor. It will air on Sky One and is co-funded and distributed internationally by Sky Vision.

Cobra gives a fascinating look into the world of politics and power under pressure, brought to life so brilliantly by Ben Richard’s scripts. It is a fantastic addition to our growing line up of home-grown British drama on Sky.”

Charlie Pattinson, Co-Founder and CEO of New Pictures, added, “Cobra is a thrilling mix of high stakes politics and high-octane action. We are delighted to be working with Sky again to realize Ben Richards’ exhilarating scripts

Last year, season seven’s episode four and its script appeared online before it was officially broadcast.

Game Of Thrones star Richard Dormer has hit out at “annoying” leaks about the TV show and suggested some could be done on purpose.

Last year, season seven’s episode four and its script appeared online before it was officially broadcast.

Four people were arrested in India in August 2017 following the leak and police said the suspects had company credentials that gave them access to episodes in advance.

Also, episode six was accidentally leaked online last year by HBO Spain, reports said.

It was then pulled within an hour, but that was still long enough for it to reach the wider internet.

The eighth and final series of the hit show is due to air on HBO and Sky Atlantic from April 2019 and Dormer, appearing on Sky News, refused to reveal any details about it, joking “they would kill me”.

The actor, who plays Beric Dondarrion in the fantasy drama, said it was annoying that leaks surfaced on the internet as “we want fans to see it on screen and go, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe it'”.

“You don’t want it to be spoiled. You want it to be a piece of entertainment, constantly keeping you on the edge of your seat.”

But he said the leaks were “good for the show”.

He told Sky News: “It gets people talking. Sometimes I suppose they even leak stuff on purpose. I don’t know but it’s all good for the show.”

Dormer, from Lisburn in Northern Ireland, was speaking ahead of the start of the third and final season of Sky Atlantic’s Scandinavian thriller Fortitude, in which he plays police officer Dan Anderssen.

He said he was going to miss the role, calling Anderssen a “brilliant character”.

Dormer said: “He’s very funny. very scary, very dark. A lot of fun.”

He also praise the sense of humour in the show, adding: “It kind of makes sense to me”.

The show was filmed in Norway where, according to Dormer, the temperature got as low as -55C (-67F)

“As long as you are wearing the right clothes and have a nice big furry hat you will be absolute fine,” he added.

Fortitude starts tonight on Sky Atlantic at 9pm.
