David Tennant and Michael Sheen - Good Omens

David Tennant and Micheal Sheen have just completed filming the adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchettís comedy Good Omens. Filming started on Monday 18th September. It will be broadcast in 2019 on BBC Two after first being shown on Amazon.

The six part television series will be set in 2018 on the brink of an apocalypse as humanity prepares for a final judgement. But a somewhat fussy angel called Aziraphale (played by Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant's character who is a demon) arenít enthusiastic about the end of the world and canít seem to find the Antichrist.

Neil Gaiman adapted all six episodes of the series (which will all be an hour in length) and will also serve as showrunner.

Following its exclusive launch on Amazon Prime Video, the series will also be broadcast on BBC in the UK. First run rights for markets where Prime Video doesnít operate will be distributed by BBC Worldwide which will also handle second run rights internationally.

Good Omens was Neil Gaimanís first novel and written in collaboration with Terry Pratchett who died in 2015.

The quote from David about the project was "Michael Sheen, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, itís a dream team and a dream gig. I am very excited that Iíve been asked to be part of this amazing project. Bring on the Apocalypse!"

Filming started on Monday 18th September 2017 and David completed filming his scenes in South Africa on Tuesday 20th February 2018. Principal filming ended on Saturday 10th March. The read-through for the first three scripts took place on Wednesday 13th September.

On Tuesday 2nd October David Tennant attended a press panel for Good Omens in London.

On Saturday 6th October David Tennant attended a media day for Good Omens at New York Comic Con.

Radio Times has a new photo and another brief interview with David Tennant about Good Omens. The interview is from the press panel on Tuesday.
David Tennant said he was surprised at how far the visual effects had come since his time on Doctor Who. ďThatís whatís interesting about doing a show like this. Itís ten years since I did Doctor Who, which has a similar mixture of practical effects and visual effects Ė and the world has moved on really fast. When we did Doctor Who there would be about five CGI shots per episode. Now weíre almost up to five per scene.Ē Updated 5/10

Entertainment Weekly has a short interview with David Tennant and Michael Sheen about Good Omens.
In the article David Tennant says ďThey enjoy being appalled by each other. Yet throughout the eons, theyíve been saving each otherís bacon, repeatedly.Ē
Speaking about Neil Gaiman David says ďItís such a unique world that he and Terry have created. If anyone else had taken it on, I donít think we could have captured the real quirky essence of it.Ē
David also says "ďThereís something wonderful about playing a supernatural character. Youíre freed from some of the restraints of some of the psychological straight lines that you might have to apply to a human being. Although at the same time Aziraphale and Crowley are very human.Ē Updated 5/10
