Don't worry, you have to apply for a quote.

The Chattering Order of St Beryl have released a short video, which may or may not be a clue as to the TV release date of Good Omens . . . or might just be them opening a portal to hell* :lol: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Twitter is a tweet about trying to decipher the code and whether it's a clue, but XXXI surrounding the sign for Pisces would hint at 31st May which seems a bit late as I thought they were aiming for an April date for release of the TV series - any thoughts?

ooops, my bad! March was a typo - I'd already guessed 31st May thanks to the Chattering Order of St Beryl doing a bit of satanical chattering around some street art :lol: Corrected now.

Oh come now, what girl would object to seeing David Tennant's snake . . . :wink:

I still have problems with his hair colour (especially when worn longer).

Looks like someone's used his head as a creosote brush (to use the politer of the two analogies that come to mind with that colour)...

I have to agree - when I first saw it, I thought it was too harsh a red colour and didn't look natural. However, I suspect that 'not looking quite normal' might a be deliberate costume choice - he is a demon after all. That said, I'm still not sure I like it either :?

I'd always imagined black, as in one of the book covers (the version i have at home). Or to be honest any colour other than diarrhea brown.

But then that wouldn't fit with Michael Sheen's Aziraphale and his white locks either. But they at least are much more in keeping and acceptable to the eye.

That's the paperback version I've got! :D When we went to the recording of BBC Radio 4's "With Pleasure" with Neil Gaiman just before Christmas, I got him to sign my beloved, battered old copy with "Burn This Book!" and then he nearly had me in tears when he rather forlornly said ". . . "of course, Terry isn't here to write the punchline . . ." :( Bless him, he really is one of the nicest people on the planet

I also used to think of Crowley's hair as black, but with that iridescent sheen that starlings and magpies have to their feathers, and some snakes have to their scales. I don't mind it being red, per se, but I really don't like the shade they've gone with - a darker shade would have been a lot easier on the eye

I'm not really convinced these are 'Easter egg's' as such, rather than very clever references to things that are in the book . . .
