Description

A reissue of the hit BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel – plus a bonus afterword from Dirk Maggs

According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, witch, the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact…

As the armies of Good and Evil converge on the sleepy English village of Lower Tadfield, the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse – War, Famine, Pollution and Death – assemble.

Atlantis is rising; fish are falling from the sky; everything seems to be going according to Divine Plan – except for unlikely angel and demon duo Aziraphale and Crowley, who have been living on Earth for millennia and become fond of the place. To prevent Armageddon, they must find and kill the Antichrist – but someone seems to have mislaid him?

Adapted, sound designed and co-directed by Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) this superb dramatisation features an extensive cast including Peter Serafinowicz, Mark Heap, Josie Lawrence and Paterson Joseph, and extra unbroadcast material including extended episodes and outtakes.

Also included is a 40-minute afterword in which Dirk Maggs talks about adapting Good Omens, working with Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, and gives us a fascinating look behind the scenes of the award-winning series.
