Following the airing of ‘Going Postal‘ on Sunday and Monday the general echo about the Terry Pratchett adaptation is very favourable. Many reviews called it entertaining and great fun and were praising the excellent cast – including Claire Foy – as well as the show’s visuals. And Claire seems to have gained quite a number of new fans according to Twitter.
Claire Foy a sneering delight as Adora Deerheart, the perfect anti-love interest for the perfect anti-hero.
The stellar cast is headed by Richard Coyle as conman-turned- postmaster Moist von Lipwig and Claire Foy as Adora Belle Dearheart.
Clare Foy is a petite powder keg of sarcastic sharp-tongued charm and compact strength in four inch steel-tipped stilettos in her Adora Belle guise
