But knowing that the director and writer were at least aware of this issue, and felt compelled to act on that awareness, is a positive step.

The Weald and Downland Living Museum in West Sussex was used to film Agnes Nutter's burning at the stake.
It was shot over a two-day period in October The car in the novel is a Bentley, but neither Gaiman nor Pratchett really knew what a model looked like when they wrote Good Omens.
For the television series, a model which had more of the look Gaiman had in mind was used. Good Omens ' opening title sequence was created by the Peter Anderson Studio, based in London and features music by David Arnold.
MacKinnon's idea was to communicate the coming of Armageddon, while also showing the humor and "fantastical tone", Crowley and Aziraphale's friendship, and the idea that good and evil is in everyone.
Anderson described the final result as "a totally bonkers mishmash of all animation styles in a way where they feel as if they belong together".
The actual production used physical props, animation, illustration, 3D and some live-action motion, to depict the approaching apocalypse and clash between Heaven and Hell.
Characters in the title represent "real" live-action persons from the series accomplished by dressing studio employees in the costumes from the show, filmed on green screen, and then later cutting them out and creating animations.
The title sequence incorporates all the characters from the series as they move towards the Apocalypse. Beryl's nuns, Shadwell and Madame Tracy, the hellhound, flying saucers, the appearance of Death, and members of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Crowley's work on London's M25 is featured in the parade along with various towns and areas of the world.
Claire Anderson was costume designer for Good Omens. She found working on the project a unique experience unlike anything else she had done.
Anderson worked closely with actors Michael Sheen and David Tennant to design their modern-day looks. Crowley's look reflected his transformation into human form from a serpent.
The costume was modern, black, almost "goth like" in style, including a "snake head" belt buckle. He often wore dark glasses to conceal his serpent eyes.
Jackets contained red on the underside of his collar. Details described throughout were incorporated into costumes.
The modern-day character, Anathema Device, distantly related to prophetess Agnes Nutter, wears a Victorian "witchy look. The designer found the material on Bond Street.
It was "light, ethereal" and ephemeral. Hamm wore lilac contact lenses to emphasize the lilac in his "pearl gray" suit. Anderson looked at nuns through the years and chose to use "peaky hats" which had a more witch-like feeling rather than an evil one.
Young, the Antichrist Adam's parents, were dressed in a nostalgic, "timeless and comforting" s look to represent their dependability.
Anderson used her own parents' friends as inspiration. His defining look is a jacket with elements of a uniform to represent his witchfinder army role.
The cold opening, featuring a flashback through history in Episode 3, required costumes to represent the various historical periods, ranging from the Garden of Eden in BC up to Soho, London in London-based Milk VFX was chosen to create all the visual effects for Good Omens.
During pre-production the six scripts were broken down to work out how the VFX could interact effectively with the story in each episode.
Larger animals were added in post-production. Sixty visual effects specialists, the most Milk had used on a single project, worked over a two-year period to create a wide range of effects.
Deguara and his crew created a wide range of effects including creatures, environments and fire. The site was built because Aziraphale's bookshop had to burn down with real fire, not just visual effects, something not possible to do in Soho.
To make Tennant's part look realistic and hide the rig, digitally created "glitch-type movements" were created. After locating a real Bentley, CG assets were created for the scenes on the street as well as inside the Bentley.
The Bentley that blew up in Episode 6 is real. The interior was removed and the exterior blown up. On the set, the filmed scenes are projected onto a screen.
The Hellhound was created by using, as a model for the Hellhound, a Great Dane dog with similar coloring to the small dog that was used later.
The original concept of Satan was a much more "hellish" version. However, Neil Gaiman wanted a more human form of the foot-tall creature, rather than including "hellfire" and over-the-top demonic action.
Good Omens features music written by Emmy winning composer David Arnold, along with quite a few Queen songs throughout the series. Arnold received two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Main Title theme and for the episode "In the Beginning.
He says, "Whenever there was a sweet violin, there would be its nasty brother lurking alongside it.
