Good Omens.

The Radio 4 version of Good Omens is to be released on vinyl. The news has been revealed as the stars of the forthcoming TV version have opened an immersive experience in London.

Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's comic fantasy novel follows the story of angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley. When they learn that the Antichrist has been born on present day Earth, they agree to work together to prevent the End of Days.

Radio 4's version, originally broadcast in 2014, starred Mark Heap as Aziraphale and Peter Serafinowicz as Crowley, with Josie Lawrence as Agnes Nutter.

The TV version, which launches on Amazon Prime tomorrow (31st May) before coming to BBC Two later in the year, also stars Lawrence, with Michael Sheen as Aziraphale and David Tennant as Crowley.

The radio version, adapted and co-directed by the award-winning Dirk Maggs, will be made available on vinyl for the first time this summer. The limited edition four-disc set will be released on 2nd August. It is available for pre-order now, with a recommended retail price of £99.99.

Ben Stanley, Head of Product & Marketing at publishers Demon Music Group, says: "It's very exciting to be announcing this brilliant new product as fans get ready to enjoy the new TV adaption. We're pleased to offer the original BBC Radio 4 production on these beautiful pieces of heavyweight vinyl."

The four 180g heavyweight coloured vinyl discs - including a laser-etched Side B - are presented in illustrated wallets inside a rigid, bound 16 page book, with exclusive sleeve notes written by Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs.

Meanwhile the TV version is also available to pre-order on DVD, Blu-ray and limited edition steelbook Blu-ray formats. A TV Companion book is already available.

Good Omens

Good Omens

It takes good and evil to save the world in this adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's cult novel, starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant.

Aziraphale is a fussy angel. Crowley is a loose-living demon. They've both been on Earth for over 6,000 years. During that time they've grown quite fond of it, and, against all odds, each other. But there's a problem - the Antichrist has arrived here on Earth, which means the world they have become too fond of will end in flames, if they don't manage to save it. This wildly imaginative and screamingly funny drama follows Aziraphale and Crowley as they join forces in an attempt to find an 11-year-old Antichrist (and his dog) and avert the Apocalypse. Armageddon is coming - but it doesn't have to be the end of the world.

"He is Nigh." "He is? Already? How??" When Aziraphale (Angel and part-time rare book dealer) and Crowley (an Angel who didn't so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards) learn that the Antichrist has been born on present day Earth, they agree to work together to prevent the End of Days.

These four 180g heavyweight black and white vinyl discs - including a laser-etched Side B - are presented in illustrated wallets inside a rigid, bound 16 page book, with exclusive sleeve notes written by Neil Gaiman and Dirk Maggs.

"Heaven and Hell are preparing for war, and it's going to be very messy."

The Nice and Accurate Good Omens TV Companion

The Nice and Accurate Good Omens TV Companion

The ultimate TV companion book to Good Omens, a massive new television launch on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC, written and show-run by Neil Gaiman and adapted from the internationally beloved novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

'[It was] absurdly good fun...Terry charged Neil with getting it made, almost as his deathbed wish, so it's a real labour of love' - David Tennant.

In the beginning there was a book written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman about the forces of good and evil coming together to prevent the apocalypse, scheduled to happen on a Saturday just after tea. Now, that internationally beloved novel has been transformed into six hour-long episodes of some of the most creative and ambitious television ever made. Written and show-run by Neil Gaiman and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, this BBC Studios creation brings Good Omens spectacularly to life, through a cast that includes David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Josie Lawrence, Derek Jacobi, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall and Adria Arjona.

Keep calm, because The Nice and Accurate Good Omens TV Companion is your ultimate guide to navigating Armageddon. Through character profiles and in-depth interviews with the stars and the crew, stunning behind-the-scenes and stills photography of the cast and locations, and a fascinating insight into costume boards and set designs, you will discover the feats of creativity and mind-boggling techniques that have gone into bringing an angel, a demon, and the Antichrist to the screens of people everywhere. This book will take you inside the world of Heaven and Hell (and Tadfield) and is set to shatter coffee tables around the world.
