Trivia

Neil Gaiman later published a "preferred text" of Neverwhere (1996). His own vision of it was somewhat different from what wound up on the screen. Much of his dialogue and ideas had to be cut for one reason or another. And everytime the BBC cut something he really liked, he said to himself "Not a problem. I'll put it back in the novel."

My God! It's Neil Gaiman!
4 April 2000 | by Morpheus-20See all my reviews

This is simply incredible. At the same time dark and brooding, funny and silly, and outright weird. In a nutshell: True Neil Gaiman.

I did not read the book before I saw the series, but now I have read the book and I was struck by how well made the series is. It feels the same way as the book -- and I don't think I need to say how rare that is... Very Neil Gaiman! Now I just wait for the adaptation of The Sandman...
