Would you believe that Good Omens is turning 30 years old this year? The novel that was co-written by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett was first published back in May 1990 and has since become a beloved classic. So it's no surprise that a little celebration is happening with two of the book's main characters Crowley and Aziraphale. David Tennant and Michael Sheen have just reprised their roles from the TV series adaptation in time for some interesting new fiction.
A new video was uploaded on Pratchett's YouTube channel and it features Tennant and Sheen providing the voices of the beloved demon/angel tandem. The new fiction, titled Good Omens: Lockdown is timely as it features Crowley and Aziraphale contemplating life after postponing the Apocalypse only to end up having to stay away from each other due to the imposed COVID-19 social distancing.
So what has Crowley and Aziraphale been up to? Nothing much has changed for the demon, who thinks it would be better to sleep through the whole pandemic. Meanwhile, the angel has actually been doing some good by making cakes for burglars during these difficult times. Not surprisingly, Crowley comes up with the idea that maybe he should visit his old friend amidst the self-quarantine.
Good Omens: Lockdown was penned by Gaiman, who seems to have a lot of time in his hands these days. On the other hand, we're happy to hear some new content from the author.
