Things We Saw Today: Neil Gaiman Gifts Us With Good Omens Series Pictures and a Lot of Terry Pratchett Emotions

Author Neil Gaiman shared pictures from the upcoming Good Omens BBC/Amazon miniseries and also paid homage to his co-author, the late, great word wizard Terry Pratchett.

That’s a picture of Terry present at the table-read. I’m not crying. I’m NOT.

This one’s from David Tennant (Crowley) and shows him alongside Michael Sheen (Aziraphale). Michael McKean will be playing Shadwell. Strong casting game is strong.

Some of Aziraphale’s snuffbox collection. #GoodOmens
