From Neverwhere to the Good Omens

Last year around Christmas, BBC Radio 4 released a radio play based on Neil Gaiman's novel Neverwhere.  It had a fantastic cast (i.e. Natalie Dormer, James McAvoy and Sophie Okonedo) and it was so well done.  

This year, Good Omens, which is a novel written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is getting the same treatment.  I am so excited about it because of all the familiar voices I will be hearing.

Peter Serafinowicz will be playing Crowley and Mark Heap will be playing Aziraphale.  I adore them both and think they are perfect.  The other cast members are such a treat as well like Colin Morgan and Harry Lloyd.  The list is quite long so check it out here.

If you're worried about not being able to listen to the play because you're outside the UK, don't be worried. You can listen from wherever you are as long as you're on the right website.

The play will be six episodes long and start on December 22nd.  The schedule is as follows:
Episode 1 & Episode 2: December 22, 2014
Episode 3: December 23, 2014.
Episode 4: December 25, 2014.
Episode 5: December 26, 2014.
Episode 6: December 27, 2014.

The times are listed on the website as well but remember timezones will be different.  Also, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett have a cameo in the production.   I hope you'll tune in because it seems like it will be such good fun.
