David Tennant Appears In Neil Gaiman's Playing In The Dark; Show Recorded For Radio At Christmas



David Tennant was a surprise guest reader alongside Neil Gaiman yesterday evening during the best-selling author's literary event at London's Barbican Centre. Neil hosted an evening of words and music with readings from his own books complemented by music performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

David joined the performance to read from Good Omens, the 1990 novel the Neil co-wrote with the late Sir Terry Pratchett. David recently played the demon Crowley in the Amazon Prime adaptation of the novel and revisited the role - also providing a faithful version of Michael Sheen's Aziraphale - during his reading. 









Music included pieces by Gershwin, Sibelius, Britten and Wagner, with vocal performances by baritone Simon Butteriss and singer Amanda Palmer, Neil's wife, who performed A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square and also read out some of Neil's writing.

If you missed out on the live event, don't despair! The concert has been recorded by the BBC and will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on December 23rd and on Radio 4 on Christmas Day. Both broadcasts can be listened to from anywhere in the world via the BBC website.
