David Tennant has been busy of late, with various upcoming on-screen projects starring the Barty Crouch Jr and Doctor Who actor – catch the details below!

Filming has started on ‘Good Omens’, an upcoming Amazon Prime Video six-part series based on the novel by Neil Gaimen, written with the late Terry Pratchett.

Gaiman recently revealed the first look at David Tennant and costar Michael Sheen in character, and he appears to be sporting more of a Weasley do for the role:

It begins. David Tennant is Crowley. Michael Sheen is Aziraphale. They are amazing. #GoodOmens

Tennant will play the demon Crowley, in a story based on earth’s apocalypse. Michael Sheen’s will play the angel Aziraphale. Gaiman’s photo is reportedly taken from shooting on the opening scene in St James’s Park, set 11 years before the events of the story. According to RadioTimes, this marks the beginning of a six-month shoot that will move through London, Oxfordshire and even South Africa.

We won’t be seeing Good Omens for a while, as the series isn’t set to air on Amazon Prime Video until 2019, before airing on BBC2 at a later date. Keep posted for more updates!

The film opens in theatres on December 15th, and a full-length trailer will premiere on Wednesday!
