Under the streets of London is a strange world inhabited by monsters and saints, murderers and angels, knights in armour, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard, a quiet London businessman, is pitchforked into this world when he rescues a young girl he finds bleeding on a pavement. Based on the cult graphic novel by Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere is a dark and thrilling mixture of metaphor, history, humour and high adventure.

Neverwhere is a fantasy about about the consequences of a man who keeps his heart and eyes
open just a little more than most and that's enough to change his life utterly.
Wonderful story, it looked fun for the actors. Budget on the low side but I'll take good
story over budget any day.
I found it very compelling.
Could have been perfect.
I also heard that Mr. Gaiman began with the TV show before translating it into a novel, but I began with the novel instead. Compared to the 6 part show, the novel was just rich with much more imagery that it seems reasonable to assume that Neil Gaiman has placed the full scope of his vision of "Neverwhere" into the book, whereas the show was clearly limited by budget constraints. Despite its limitations, the show itself stands sturdy under the crutches of the strong plot, but before you watch the show - why not read the book first? The book may be the closest thing to the real "Neverwhere" that Neil Gaiman intended, and to compare and contrast the novel and the show is a facinating look into the conflict between original vision and visual translation. The differences between the book and the show however, makes me a little anxious for the upcoming movie.
Wonderfully oddball series written/created by Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Coraline, Mirrormask, New Gods...). Its an "odd-man-out" kind of story, set in London..and...under London. Very creative and quirky. Actually created in this version first, then later he wrote the novel, and only later came the graphic novel. Would love to see a full-on production of this one day with an actual budget.
