The ending is, of course, a bit of a cliff-hanger, and given the fairly low audience ratings shown in Wikipedia (0.274 million for episode 1, declining to 0.130 million for episode 8) I suspect that there won't be a second season, which is a shame, although BBC America apparently say early next year so I may be being unduly pessimistic. Since I've read the books I've an idea how it turns out anyway...
Meanwhile we apparently have Good Omens 2 and Anansi Boys to look forward to at some point, probably next year. I sincerely hope that they will be more faithful to their original sources, but given Gaiman's involvement that's probably a given. Also The Sandman, of course.
All this is well and good, but as coth pointed out to me on Friday, there are other fantasy and SF authors out there, and it might be nice to see more of them getting onto TV, rather than a Gaiman monoculture. I'd LOVE to see Jo Walton's Tooth and Claw, for example, though that would probably have to be animated, given that the characters are dragons!
