Much of the shooting has taken place at a film studio in Bathgate, where London's Soho and Heaven have been recreated on sound stages.
Good Omens was created and written by Neil Gaiman, who based the show off of his and Terry Pratchett's 1990 novel of the same name.
Gaiman was recently asked about the choice of shooting location on the social media site Tumblr. He answered the question, and wrote: “Bathgate was chosen because it has a great big studio where we could build Soho”.
