The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655.

The Apocalypse has arrived, but the fabled battle of Armageddon will not take place in the Middle East it’ll be in Oxfordshire unless a demon and an angel get their way. Good Omens is from the combined writing of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett who take the well-trod path of end of the world novels...
I haven't always had the best luck with BBC full cast dramatisations, but this one worked brilliantly. A demon and an angel set out to thwart the apocalypse. Chaos ensures. It's Pratchett, so it's almost guaranteed funny. I haven't read enough Gaiman to comment on what he brings to the story o...
