A Twitter user decided to go on a Good Omen’s tour while visiting London. She found the Amazon Prime series’ filming locations–from the benches Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant) sat on to the bar they frequented.

She brought along photos of the pair, taken in the same scenes she was visiting, to recreate the Good Omen’s moments. She then shared photos of her recreations on Twitter, along with kind words about the helpful Londoners she encountered.

“As a tourist I noticed how kind the people are in London. BUT HOW KIND THEY BECAME when they saw what I was doing,” Lina wrote. “They helped me and we laughed a lot. it was AMAZING, thank you!”

The co-author of the Good Omen’s novel and series showrunner, Neil Gaiman, saw Lina’s tweet and called her recreations “glorious,” with fans echoing similar sentiments.

Many were curious to know how Lina found the filming locations so they, too, could go on a tour.

As it turns out, Lina is not the first person to bring along the “ineffable husbands” on a Good Omen’s recreation tour.

“Went on a little Good Omens tour with my very own Aziraphale @lilyp3no over the past couple days, and the results are quite beautiful,” Twitter user @emscrazynotions wrote, along with photos from the scenes she decided to recreate.

People were actually distracted by Lina’s comments about Londoners, as many believe them to be the exact opposite of how she described.

“I’m surprised. I just assumed that most Londoners were either annoyed or patronizingly amused by tourists wandering their city and nerding out about every inch of it,” one user wrote in response.

The official Good Omens Twitter account compared angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley working together to save the world from doom to Lina, a tourist, being helped out by Londoners.

“Another great example of good and evil working together!” the account wrote.

But who is the Aziraphale and who is the Crowley in this scenario?

Londoners are the Crowley of this scenario, apparently.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Lina.
