Terry Pratchett's Good Omens is going to feature a touching tribute to the late author.

Neil Gaiman – who first teased an adaptation of the novel he wrote with Pratchett to Digital Spy waaay back in 2011 – shared a short video from the Good Omens set...

"In Aziraphale's bookshop. There's a little area of Books by one of his favourite authors, and a hat that one of the customers left behind and will be back for one day... #goodomens #terrypratchett," he wrote.

The footage is, of course, from the set of Aziraphale's bookshop, a key location from the novel that works as both Aziraphale's home away on Earth, and a space for his beloved book collection.

As you can see, Aziraphale's shop will feature a pile of Pratchett's most iconic books, alongside his trademark hat.

Last month, we got our first look at Jon Hamm in character as the Archangel Gabriel, with Gaiman teasing on Twitter: "I suppose you are wondering, IN THE UPCOMING GOOD OMENS TV SERIES CURRENTLY BEING FILMED WHAT DOES THE ANGEL GABRIEL (played by Jon Hamm) LOOK LIKE? You are, aren't you?"

The six-part series is being adapted from the iconic novel Good Omens, which centres on two deities – Crowley (David Tennant) and Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) – as they try to stave off the oncoming apocalypse.

Good Omens will be launched by Amazon Prime Video in 2019, and shown at a later date on BBC Two.
