The angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley hate quarantine just as much as we do.
On Friday, to honor the 30th anniversary of the publication of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens novel, the team behind its heavenly TV adaptation at Amazon Prime Video reunited stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant for an audio clip scripted by Gaiman.
It’s a delightful phone call between everyone’s favorite celestial pals that covers everything from the boredom of social distancing to the merits of feeding baked goods to a group of intruders who tried to rob you — “I certainly gave them a good talking to, and sent each of them home with cake,” Aziraphale assures Crowley. Sigh. Sweet angel baby.
“This is our present to all of you,” Gaiman said on Twitter. “It’s to make people happy, because too many of us are sad.” Mission accomplished, sir. Though we still don’t buy Aziraphale and Crowley aren’t holed up together somewhere… Rules or no, buddies are buddies.
