As a huge Terry Pratchett fan I've read Good Omens, the book he wrote with Neil Gaiman, several times over the years so I'm hugely excited that it's being made into a series. I'm a little heartbroken that Terry isn't around to see it but knowing Neil has worked on the series makes me sure that Terry would approve of the final results. Especially after seeing this teaser trailer!!
Doesn't it look fabulous?! I think David Tennant and Michael Sheen are going to be brilliant as Crowley and Aziraphale! I don't think I've ever actually reviewed the book for my blog so I definitely feel another reread is in order before the series releases next year but in the meantime here's a bit more information for anyone who hasn't read it yet:
According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch – the world’s only totally reliable guide to the future, written in 1655, before she exploded – the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea…
People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it’s only natural to be sceptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day. This time though, the armies of Good and Evil really do appear to be massing. The four Bikers of the Apocalypse are hitting the road. But both the angels and demons – well, one fast-living demon and a somewhat fussy angel – would quite like the Rapture not to happen.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…
Who else is a Good Omens fan? Are you as excited for the TV series as I am? I always get a bit nervous when favourite books are adapted for TV or movies but I think this one is going to be spot on!
