Anyone else really looking forward to this? One of my favourite books, also David Tennant what's not to like grin

As in Terry Pratchet's Good Omens?! On the telly?! Are you kidding me?!

Christ, I'm half over the moon excited and half fucking terrified they are going to ruin one of the best books ever written. Be still my beating heart.

Can't wait! Loved the radio play too. Love your name toowink

DT looks very, very nice cue Trevor and Simon thigh rubbing in the set photos I've seen grin

I had a dream David served me a school dinner the other night, very odd. I hope they lose none of the humour and wit, wasn't overly keen on the adaptations of Pratchett's stuff.

I'm so excited about this, but it's so far away. I'm sure they said it would be on BBC 2 in 2019!

Yes I cannot wait! One of my absolute favourite books. And David Tennant is one of my favourite David's.

Wait, what? Good Omens with David Tennant? How have I not heard of this?

So excited about this. David Tennent and Michael Sheen look amazing.

Could somebody please link to where I can see these things?

I am INSANELY excited about this. David Tennant and Michael Sheen are perfect for the roles. Also Miranda Richardson as Madame Tracy! ❤️

Photo of Tennant and Sheen in costume from Neil Gaiman's Instagram.

I am looking forward to Michael Sheen and David Tennant, but their costumes are ALL WRONG! Too obvious!

ISaySteadyOn Mon 25-Sep-17 16:31:11

They're Crowley and Aziraphale, yes?

I am so looking forward to this; it's probably my favourite book.

anyone else miss proper silver balls when they're decorating cakes and think of Good Omens....

Creatureofthenight Tue 26-Sep-17 20:32:10

Can't wait! One of my favourite books, and I love DT

Jon Hamm is playing Archangel Gabriel.

One of my favourite books - well the remaining pages that haven't fallen out of it are (had to buy it on Kindle to re-read as our paperback copy is so bloody knackered). Plus David Tennant who is always very pleasant on the eye. I'm looking forward to this - even though Pratchett is always a bit hit or miss how it translates to the screen (loved Hogfather a few years ago though).

JsOtherHalf Fri 06-Oct-17 12:01:17

I have my original paperback, a pristine hardback copy, and an e version too.

scottishdiem Fri 06-Oct-17 12:10:23

I love the fact that this was a joint book between Pratchett and Gaiman and even though Gaiman is involved the fear is that it wont do justice to a Pratchett book.

ArcheryAnnie Fri 06-Oct-17 14:08:23

I've got a tattered paperback signed by both Gaiman and Pratchett - they apparently often did it in the same way, with Pratchett writing "BURN THIS BOOK!" and Gaiman writing "apply holy match here ->" (pointing to corner of page).

Excited and worried in equal measures after American Gods. Seems to be good casting so far, though I'll reserve judgement on Jack Whitehall as Newt.

SchadenfreudePersonified Fri 06-Oct-17 19:22:33

What!? Why have I just found out abut this? It is the Best Book Ever - and David Tennant . . . . <fans self and pours ice water over ovaries>

When is this due to happen?
