Also in brand new casting news, Neil Gaiman announced tonight that the role of Satan, an animated character, will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. He joins the previously announced Frances McDormand as God.

Set in 'a nostalgic present' Good Omens sees the Earth hurtling towards the Apocalypse, with the forces of Heaven and Hell massing for the final battle. However, an angel and a demon who have dwelt among humanity since The Beginning are determined that they won't give up their comfortable existance and form an alliance to stop the world ending. Their plan is to destroy the Antichrist...if only they han't mislaid him.

The series also stars Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Jack Whitehall, Nina Sonanya, Michael McKean and Josie Lawrence.

The series will air on BBC Two in the autumn, followed by broadcast on other international networks (details to be announced).
