Good Omens by Loopydave Good Omens by Loopydave
Aziraphale and Crowley (Michael Sheen and David Tennant) from the upcoming adaption of the 'Good Omens' novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett... Inktober may be finished but clearly not my obsession with all things Pratchett.
SO hanging out for the series (early 2019 apparently), but in the meantime I've had to settle for watching the recent trailer over and over again and drawing this silly picture.

I hope the TV show includes that dialogue from the book about the punishments they can expect when heaven and hell find out they've screwed up (The Gomorrah gag).

Can't remember the Gomorrah gag, but I'm confident with Neil Gaiman as the show runner, we'll get a lot of the good stuff in there!

Crowley: "You'll be amazed at the kind of things they can do to you down there."

Aziraphale: "I imagine they're very similar to the sort of things they can do to one up there."

Crowley: "Come off it. Your lot get ineffable mercy."

Aziraphale: "Yes? Did you ever visit Gomorrah?'

Crowley: "Sure. There was this great little tavern where you could get these terrific date-palm cocktails with nutmeg and crushed lemon grass-"

Aziraphale: "I meant afterwards."

Crowley: "Oh."

The BBC Radio play version will have to do for now, the actors they've had doing the voices for Aziraphale and Crowley are hilarious, I think they had Jim Carter do the voice of Metatron(sort of like God's official spokesperson)

I have the 'standard' audio book version... may have to chase down the radio play at some stage. You are not the first person to recommend it!

'Good Omens' is perhaps the greatest collaborative story I've ever read!  Wore out my first copy from re-reading and had to buy a replacement!  I hope the movie is worthwhile..., PLEASE tell me it's being done by Brits and not by Americans!

Being done by Brits... AND Neil Gaiman is the show runner so the show is in good hands :)

Did you hear about the new series based on the Watch series of novels?

narrativia.com/watch.html?fbcl…

"...BBC AMERICA announced today the greenlight of the new original scripted series, The Watch, based on Sir Terry Pratchett’s wildly popular “Discworld” novels, which have sold more than 90 million books worldwide. The (8 x 60) series is produced by BBC Studios for BBC AMERICA. The Watch is distributed by BBC Studios.

The Watch is a punk rock thriller inspired by the legendary ‘City Watch’ subset of “Discworld” novels. This disruptive, character-driven thriller centers on Terry Pratchett’s misfit cops as they fight to save a ramshackle city of normalized wrongness, from both the past and future in a perilous quest. Modern and inclusive, The Watch features many famous “Discworld” creations including City Watch Captain Sam Vimes, the last scion of nobility Lady Sybil Ramkin, the naïve but heroic Carrot, the mysterious Angua and the ingenious non-binary forensics expert Cheery together with Terry Pratchett’s iconic characterization of Death...."

I did indeed! I know they've been kicking around the idea for years and was pretty excited to hear it was finally going ahead.
Casting on this one is going to be critical I reckon, but so far all the Pratchett adaptions have been great!
