The Watch is a fantasy police procedural television series that premiered on BBC America in 2021. Based on the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, the show follows a group of misfit cops as they try to keep order in the city of Ankh-Morpork. Led by the cynical and jaded Captain Sam Vimes, the team includes a werewolf, a dwarf, and a golem, among others. The Watch is a darkly comedic and irreverent take on the police procedural genre, with a strong emphasis on world-building and character development. The first season has ended, but sign up for a reminder just in case it returns.
