Episode 3

A young prince tackles the dragon attacks, but why is Captain Vimes suspicious? Comic fantasy with Martin Jarvis and John Wood.

The people of Ankh-Morpork have a no-nonsense approach to entertainment. While they're looking forward to seeing a dragon slain, they'd be happy to settle instead for seeing the avenging warrior baked in his own armour.
