Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) is a fussy angel. Crowley (David Tennant) is a loose-living demon. They ve both been on Earth for over 6,000 years. During that time they ve grown quite fond of it, and - against all odds - each other. But there s a problem: the Antichrist has arrived here on Earth, which means the world they have become too fond of will end in flames, if they don't manage to save it. This wildly imaginative and screamingly funny drama follows Aziraphale and Crowley as they join forces in an attempt to find an 11-year-old Antichrist (and his dog) and avert the Apocalypse. Armageddon is coming...but it doesn t have to be the end of the world.
