FIRST LOOK: David Tennant and Michael Sheen look fantastic in the Good Omens adaptation from Amazon Prime

Talk about stepping off the page on to the screen!

Neil Gaiman has revealed our first look at David Tennant and Michael Sheen as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale from he and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens which is being adapted by the good folks at Amazon Prime and… oh, my.

As A fan of the book from an early age, this is almost exactly how I imagined these two characters, so it’s exciting and encouraging to think that a faithful adaptation is on its way.

Miranda Richardson, Michael McKean and Jack Whitehall will also appear in the six-part series when it arrives in 2018.

CO-writer of the novel and writer on the series, Gaiman said of the duo that they made “one hell of a double act (or do I mean one made in Heaven?)”

“People have fallen in love with an angel and a demon in a book by Terry Pratchett and me, and they have been excited and nervous to see how they would appear on screen.”

In the novel the duo, old friends from before the war in Heaven, join forces to stop the end of the world from a young boy and his rather lovely hellhound.

We’re so in! Are you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
