Neil Gaiman

It seems the apocalypse has been averted. But how? The final episode of this Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett collaboration answers that question in discursive and inventive style. After a standoff between angels and demons there are neat reappearances from Jon Hamm and Anna Maxwell Martin.

Despite some hammy special effects and occasional overwriting, Neil Gaiman's epic six-parter zings with wit, wisdom and heaven-sent casting.

Armageddon at last approaches in Neil Gaiman's handsome, but somehow inert, fantasy comedy: tornadoes are blowing, God is speaking and Jack Whitehall's accidental witchfinder responds to the looming end of the world in the way all virgins should. Plus, the antichrist finally reveals himself.

More backstory for Michael Sheen's prissy angel, Aziraphale, and David Tennant's louche demon, Crowley, as this adaptation of the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett novel continues. From Noah's ark to the crucifixion, the pair have plenty of shared history. This series has proved as inventive as its provenance suggests.

Phil Harrison, The Guardian, 29th January 2020

It is episode two of Neil Gaiman's fantasy series, based on his book with Terry Pratchett, and England's long history of witchcraft starts to play its part in the looming apocalypse. If you can stomach how arch and mannered it all is, the sparkling, high-budget visuals offer a blizzard of clever ideas.

Would Terry Pratchett have been happy with the result? I imagine he would certainly have laughed. And that would be entirely down to Michael Sheen as the blond, fluffy-haired angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as the snake-eyed devil's demon Crowley, hiding his terrifying irises with sunglasses.

Good Omens review

The story is based on a novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, so it's bursting with daft jokes. Silliest of the lot is the convent for devil-worshipping nuns, the Sisters of the Chattering Order of St Beryl.

Neil Gaiman's Armageddon fantasy has landed on BBC Two - but it's far from heavenly.
