Good Omens: Read The Novel Behind David Tennant's New Project



As we posted yesterday, David Tennant and Michael Sheen have been cast in the new BBC Two and Amazon co-production of Good Omens. The six-part comic fantasy series has been adapted by Neil Gaiman from the novel that he co-wrote with the late Sir Terry Pratchett. 


Martin Sheen will star as the somewhat fussy angel and rare-book dealer Aziraphale, and David Tennant will play his opposite number, the fast living demon Crowley, both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and of each other. So it’s really terrible news for both of them that, if Heaven and Hell have their way, the world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis has risen, tempers are flaring. The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse are ready to ride. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…
