If You Enjoyed Good Omens You Should Try and Hit the Escape Room While it’s Open

Today is the day the TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens hits Amazon Prime Video, with all six episodes available for you to enjoy.

Neil Gaiman Had to Fight to Keep One of Terry Pratchett’s Creations in Good Omens

Agnes Nutter is not really a huge part of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s divine apocalyptic adventure Good Omens – she’s more important to the backstory and worldbuilding of Crowley and Aziraphale’s journey to stop the apocalypse, rather than being a major player herself.
