Trivia

  • According to Neil Gaiman, co-author Terry Pratchett’s last request to him before his death in 2015 was for Neil to write the screen adaptation. Previous attempts to bring the book to television failed due to not being able to find a writer able to adapt the book while keeping its spirit and humor.
  • Most music throughout the series is from Queen. This is a running joke in the source book, in which every cassette tape left in Crowley’s car for a fortnight, magically turns into “The Best of Queen.”
  • Josie Lawrence plays the witch Agnes Nutter, a part Lawrence also played in the 2014 BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Good Omens.
