Good Omens' will include a tribute to Terry Pratchett
While we're all still mourning the loss of the amazingly gifted Terry Pratchett, 'Good Omens' (which is finally getting a televised adaptation on Amazon) will include a tribute to the author.
Neil Gaiman knows that his writing partner and friend will never be able to see this take on their work but still wants to make sure it includes something special just for him.
How Gaiman managed a quick little tribute was not only perfect but fits right into an already existing scene from the novel without having to use any stretch of the imagination.
Michael Sheen's Aziraphale owns a bookshop in the novel, and I'm sure it is quickly obvious where this should be going. Gaiman happily shared a video from the set of the shop where it will not only feature a pile of Pratchett's most well-known works but the hat he was always known to wear. In the scene, the hat will be described as something that "one of the customers left behind and will be back for one day..."
