Other than the events at the BFI, The Southbank Centre isn’t one of the venues TMINE regularly monitors for TV-related fare.

However, I’ve just noticed that tomorrow, to coincide with the release of Good Omens on Amazon on Friday, the man-god Neil Gaiman is discussing said show, which is based on the novel he wrote with Terry Pratchett.

There are still tickets left, so get booking if you’re interested.

Neil Gaiman: Good Omens

Date: Wednesday May 29
Timings: 7.30pm-9pm
Venue: Royal Festive Hall

The master storyteller reflects on reinventing the modern classic Good Omens for the screen, joined by stars of the series David Tennant and Michael Sheen.

Before he died in 2015, Sir Terry Pratchett asked Neil Gaiman to make a television series of the internationally beloved novel they wrote together thirty years ago.

Ahead of the series launching on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC, hear from Gaiman himself about adapting the novel as well as being the showrunner for the series, which stars David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm and Miranda Richardson, to name but a few.

For one night only, Gaiman speaks about bringing his original collaboration with Pratchett to life, the differences between page and screen, how the characters continue to surprise him and why this wicked comedy about Armageddon remains relevant today.

Chairing the conversation is journalist, broadcaster and writer Kirsty Wark.
