There's the witches: young Agnes who is really in two minds about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg who is far too knowing...and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble.
And the vampires are intelligent - not easily got rid of with a garlic enema or going to the window, grasping the curtains and saying, "I don't know about you, but isn't it a bit stuffy in here?" They've got style and fancy waistcoats. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe.

"He will remain an enduring, endearing presence in comic literature." (Guardian)
I'm sure this is a brilliant book in print, but sadly I had significant problems with Tony Robinson's Nanny Ogg voice.
I wouldn't ever consider Tony hammy at all normally, but felt his narration of one of the main characters (and several of the witches) so overacted that I didn't finish.
