I'm slowly making my way through this show. Not much free time at the moment.
Episode three started off with a fun montage of Aziraphale and Crowley's friendship over the millennia, and Crowley repeatedly saving Aziraphale from his overly idealistic and naive exploits. Sheen and Tennant really do inhabit these characters well. I imagine the costume and makeup people had a lot of fun coming up with their different looks, over the years.
I never got quasi-romantic undertones from their friendship in the book, but it seems to be very present in the show. Obviously, being angels and demons, I don't think they actually have sexual desires, but part of the way Sheen plays Aziraphale's fussy nervousness, and Tennant plays that louche charm, they definitely have that vibe.
It was nice to see the League of Gentlemen - Mark Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton - appearing. This show really feels like an all-star cast of British television. So it kind of confuses me as to why they cast an American actor to play the very Scottish Shadwell. It seems like a role tailor-made for Bill Paterson, who appears very briefly (with a real Scottish accent) as the neighbourhood watch bloke in Tadfield.
Adria Arjona is stunning, and probably too attractive for Anathema (certainly too attractive to go unremarked in a small English village). Jack Whitehall is managing to hide his well-bred good looks quite well. I'm quite impressed with the way he's changed his body language, posture and facial expressions.
The boy playing Adam is really good. He manages to feel like an eleven year old boy, rather than a practised child actor, playing an eleven year old boy. He's a lot more low-key than, say, the Stranger Things kids, but I guess it makes sense, given that he's the Anti-Christ.
I always liked the idea of the weather in Tadfield being exactly as it should be for the time of year - warm and sunny in the summer, snow in the winter - just the sort of thing you'd want as a kid.
