Trivia

Many of the sets have a strange and odd looking lighting to them. The reason for this is that the Crew thought they would be filming on video and have it corrected for 35mm film. So they lit the set for film. However, a decision was made in post production not to do this. See more »

Quotes

[Answering the phone]
Mr. Croup: Croup and Vandemar, the Old Firm, obstacles obliterated, nuisances eradicated, bothersome limbs removed and tutelary dentistry undertaken.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are full of surreal, distorted images from London Below. And each episode opens with a different character narrating the events of the previous episode. The end credits uses surreal imagery as a backdrop. See more »

How on earth did this pass me by?
9 October 2003 | by (Notts, UK) – See all my reviews

After being treated to the first episode of this gritty tale of another world I was left desperate for more! I am quite surprised that this passed me by in the first instance. What on earth was I doing in 1996 when this was being shown?

Neverwhere begins with the introduction of its characters in a less than conventional way. It almost puts you off by its quirky and totally off the rails introduction. Once you get over this and the low budget nature of the program you find that the storyline is quite appealing. There are many familiar faces to discover throughout each episode.

This 6 episode adventure would appeal to fans of Dr Who and general low budget science fiction. This is never going to be mainstream programming and thats where its appeal lies. Give the first 10 minutes of episode one a try, its a pretty good indicator of the general story itself, and it got me hooked pretty quickly.

8/10 LEWIS CAROL EAT YOUR HEART OUT!
