Editorial Reviews

Neil Gaiman’s (The Sandman, Coraline) first TV miniseries, co-created with Lenny Henry (The Lenny Henry Show, Chef!), brings viewers to an ambitious exploration of a London with two worlds. When office drone Richard Mayhew (Gary Bakewell) rescues a mysterious girl named Door (Laura Fraser, He Knew He Was Right), he unwittingly finds himself part of her quest to learn why her parents have been killed. The next thing he knows, Mayhew’s life changes forever as he's pulled into the fantastical world of London Below, far from his mundane life in London Above. Pursued by the murderous Messrs. Croup and Vandemar, Door and Richard, with the help of Hunter and the Marquis de Carabas, attempt to find the Angel Islington, who knows the secret behind the murder of Door's family, and possibly a way for Richard to go home.

Just a note on this wonderful series, the bulk of the poor reviews seem to be under the misapprehension that the book came first. It did not. The Neverwhere miniseries was a project/collaboration between Neil Gaiman and Lenny Henry. Originally envisioned as a story focusing on the homeless (to ostensibly raise awareness), Neil decided to remove it to the London Underground with the fantasy and horror elements to avoid making homelessness seem cool.

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.

Neil Gaiman is one of a select few modern-day writers in the fantasy genre whose writings are not derivative of JRR Tolkien and do not involve werewolves or vapires. A fellow Canadian Guy Gabriel Kay and Ursula LeGuin of Earthsea fame are among the few I’d call his equals. Neverwhere is a BBC Series he scripted.

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 love Gainman! He has great stories and are well written. Because of the type of story Neverwhere is, I was a bit worried about it being a movie/TV mini-series also. There are a few things that are different, but nothing absurd, and the story line is pretty spot on with the book (even though the mini series came before the book). The production value is what could have been expected from any TV station during the mid-90s. It's not a high budget feature, but not low budget either. The special effects are about as good as any other feature from this time. It seems a bit corny at times, but it's just so good!

I saw this movie 15 years ago and liked it well enough that I thought I wanted a personal copy. It's a good thing the DVD was so cheap, because I don't feel so bad shelling out a few bucks for this yawner. The plot is VERY thinand far too predictable. That's a shame because the premise on which the storyline depends is not half bad. The only bright spots in this somewhat disappointing anniversary edition are the cameo appearances by some famous and familiar British actors: Freddie Jones plays the brain-addled king of an abandoned line of the London Underground, and a startlingly young Peter Capaldi (currently playing Dr. Who for BBC TV) are the two most notable walk-ons. Keep an eye open for several appearances by other Dr. Who veterans. My advice: Watch it first on a streaming service, and if you like it, then buy it on Amazon, where the price is right for such a light-weight piece of cinematic fluff.

It's a Neil Gaiman story! Although the movie is not as good as the book (nothing unusual there!) I have watched this several times through the years and decided it was time to order it. It is an unusual story with a good cast. I would watch it first (and read or listen to the book!!!!) before buying as it may not be to everyone's taste. I will say that I have also listened to the audible book (narrated by Neil!) several times and absolutely love it! A great story if you like fantasy and of course, Neil Gaiman!

So happy to have this on dvd now. 13 years ago I have to search the internet for bootleg vhs's of this bbc series and now at easy access its the whole series. The picture is clear and it even comes with a nice map of London Below . Nice extra for fans of Gaimans book.

This video was very true to the book. I enjoyed it and the characters in it very much. If you haven't read the book, you should before you watch the video. I think that it will explain the storyline and help knowing what is going on.

I thought the acting was fairly good,
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.
