Robin Brooks, who previously dramatised Terry Pratchett's Small Gods and Mort, has done the same for this, the ninth in the Discworld series. Expect elevated production values as we follow the adventures of Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch as he falls through time and arrives in the city of his youth.

Just what is the obsession these days with time-travelling cops? Life On Mars, Ashes to Ashes ... and now Night Watch (11pm, Radio 4), based on Terry Pratchett's 2002 Discworld novel. Meet Sam Vimes, the Ankh-Morpork policeman who falls through a wormhole in the space-time continuum and finds himself in the past, where he ends up becoming his own younger self's mentor. It's an enjoyable romp, albeit with a pleasingly dark edge.
