Episode 2 of 4

Trying to fulfil his client's wish to be Ruler of the World, Junior Wizard Rincewind is unnerved by his success. Stars Mark Heap.

Young Eric Thursley wants to rule the world, and junior wizard Rincewind actually manages to magic him up a tribal kingdom among the Tezumen, in the rainforests of Klatch.

But all that changes when they meet the Tezumen's bloodthirsty deity: Quetzovercoatl.

Terry Pratchett's many Discworld novels combine a Technicolor imagination with a razor sharp wit, especially when he rewrites Faust as spotty teenage demonologist Eric.
