When interest in the series peaked he was able to go back through the script and adapt it for novelization, which allowed Neil to flesh out the story and fill in ideas that were either cut for time or harder to translate to film. If you treat the book as a sort of Directors Cut you wouldn't be far from the mark - but in the end, without the series we wouldn't have the book.
As for disagreements about production quality or performance, this was done a long time before the BBC considered such tales worthy of significant budget. I'm no longer inclined to pick it apart, I've loved the series since I was a teenager (35 now) and it's a well worn friend for days when I need to hide from being a responsible adult.
Richard Mayhew stops in the streets of London to help a girl and suddenly finds himself devoid of identity, largely invisible to his former associates, without a job, or an apartment. Suddenly he finds himself in Neverwhere a place where rat speakers take orders from Rats and his former world and the rules he lived by no longer apply. With Door as his guide they seek the Angel Islington and a key, but, as we are reminded, the Devil was an angel as well. In their travels they meet many more remarkable characters and places. Whether or not you buy his wanting to return after he escapses is up to you.
I know this miniseries was before the actual
Book "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman. The set designs
were pretty good, the only fault of the miniseries
was where something special would occur (like crossing over
the dark bridge) they kept showing the same thing
as in other parts of the Miniseries. If they
could have changed that, then it would get *5* stars.
But that same Scene just kept repeating over and over again.
Plus you could tell that it was a low budget production By BBC.

For those who follow Neil Gaiman know the book was actually a supplement to the series. The only reason this doesn't get 2 stars is because I love the book and most of Gaiman's... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Robert Daniel
