Did You Know?

Trivia

Lenny Henry originated the project back in the early 1990s. Initially, he wanted it to be homeless people living beneath the streets of London, but Gaiman vetoed the idea, wanting it to be about a magical subculture instead. See more »

Quotes

Door: The Marquis de Carabas is a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur.

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 »

A good british mini series, excellent novel
13 December 1999 | by (newport kentucky) – See all my reviews

this novel was one of the better dark fantasy books i have read, a very modern Hero Epic. Anyone who has ever lived in london (as i have) will certainly appreciate this. Fans of Neil Gaiman is a must. Its flaw is that some of the performances are only so-so, and it us unfortunately incredibly Under-funded. Not that big budgets are a must (look at Blair Witch Project), but this looks a little too cheap, a lot like Dr. Who.
