Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman will go to the small screen

Reporting directly from Neil Gaiman’s blog: Good Omens, the fagnificent spawn of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is being adapted for television by Terry Jones (Monty Python) and Gavin Scott (Small Soldiers). The producer will be Rod Brown, who already lead the BBC versions of Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather and The Colour of Magic. He did a great job capturing the fantastic and gritty ambientation of Discworld’s characters, and I am sure that this coming in 2013 BBC miniseries will be up to the fan base expectations.

What is so exciting about this book becoming a movie? Well, not only is the product of the collaboration of the two most original fantasy writers alive, but it also packs a lot of action, philosophy, absurd, irony, mythology, religion and pop culture references. Let me introduce you the characters and the plot (Pictures by the fantastic jdillon82 at  Deviantart). If you want, you can play with me and try to guess which actor will play who.


I hope that after reading those excerpts, you are as excited as I am.

Long live the Gaiman and Pratchett marriage!

  1. I’m too excited to even make a guess at the actors!!! THIS IS EPIC!!!! *flailing like a fangirl that flails for a living*

  2. “fagnificent”?!?! Holy heterosexist slurs, Batman, this website is terrible and I shall most certainly never return!

    • nice cultural awareness here–doesnt mean the same thing everywhere you know. In the UK (ie where at least pratchett is from) it refers to a cigarette. If your going to be sensitive, at least be informed at the same time.

      reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_(slang)
      (united kingdom section)

      • Somehow I doubt they’re talking about cigarettes, though.

      • Grow a thicker skin, or maybe the web isn’t for you.

  3. Let’s see, Hugh Grant as Aziraphale, Jude Law as Crowley. Charles Dance as Famine, Tom Felton as Pollution, Jeremy Irons as Death, Elliott Tittensor as Newton, Tom Baker as Shadwell, Kate Beckinsale as War, Celia Imrie as Madame Tracy.

    Kinda lost as to Anathema – don’t know many English actresses her age.

  4. Benedict Cumberbatch as Aziraphale, Tom Hindleson as Crowley, Celia Imrie as Madame Tracy

    • Switch those first two roles and I would be so happy…. Mind you, I have a feeling I will be happy anyway.

    • YES

    • if i knew who you were i would drop a shit on your porch

  5. Let’s see… David Tennant as Crowley (or Mark Sheppard, just because Supernatural), Mark Gatiss as Aziraphale, Robert Downey Jr as Famine, no idea for the other Horsemen, Martin Freeman as Mr Young, Jude Law as the delivery man, unknowns for the Them.

  6. Stephen Fry as Aziraphale and I would die happy…. and David Tenant as the Delivery Man.

  7. I’m so excited for this!

  8. YES!!!!!!!!

  13. You’ll find certainly lots of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you can find questions like the one you bring up exactly where essentially the most necessary factor will likely be working in honest excellent faith. I don?t know if ideal practices have emerged around points like that, but I’m certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
