Trivia

The sign on Aziraphale's shop reads: "Bookshop Opening Hours - I open the shop on most weekdays about 11:30 or perhaps 10 am while occasionally I open the shop as early as 8, I have been known not to open until 1, except on Tuesday, I tend to close about 5:30 pm, or earlier if something needs tending to. However, I might occasionally keep the shop open until 8 or 9 at night. You never know when you might need some light reading. On days that I am not in, the shop will remain closed. On weekends, I will open the shop during normal hours unless I am elsewhere. Bank Mondays will be treated in the usual tradition, with early closing on Wednesdays, or sometimes Fridays. (For Sundays see Tuesdays). A. Z. Fell, Bookseller See more »

Goofs

In the 1601 scene, Crowley opens a door and walks towards Aziraphale (with no William Shakespeare to be seen). In the next shot, Crowley has disappeared, the door is shut, and Shakespeare is present. In the following shot, the door is left open again, and Crowley has completed his walk towards Aziraphale. See more »

Quotes

Crowley: Look, I've been thinking. What if it all goes wrong? We have a lot in common, you and me.
Aziraphale: I don't know. We may have started off as angels, but you are fallen.
Crowley: I didn't really fall. I just, you know, sauntered vaguely downwards.

a long friendship that was never meant to be anything at all
24 June 2019 | by ganymedes1985See all my reviews

Half the episode is a hopscotch through the ages as we see the Good and the Evil slowly bond over practicalities. The other half shows how a young boy can be easily influenced around the age of 11, and how neither Good nor Evil has the skills (nor will) to do what must be done.
