Factual error: Aziraphale cites the only prophecy from Agnes Nutter that he could find as one for 1972, "do not buy Betamax" (a reference to the home video format war). Betamax was only launched in 1975 starting in Japan, so this advice wouldn't be of any use until 1976. (And these prophecies were completely, even ludicrously accurate, so that excludes any explanation that she was simply a few years off, because she was never wrong). (00:19:10)Spiny Norman
Trivia: Budget limitations means the original plan for the Globe scene to feature a packed theatre had to be cut down, because they couldn't afford hundreds of extras with full costume starting at 5am, in order to finish before the theatre was used for a performance later in the day. Unwilling to cut the scene entirely, Neil Gaiman realised if they altered the sequence such that Hamlet was a flop, they could get away with just a few extras and work that into the dialogue.Jon Sandys
