Trivia

Neil Gaiman toyed around with the idea of doing a sequel. But he and the BBC could never agree on how much money to spend so the idea was dropped. Gaiman, however has not discounted the possibility of writing a book sequel to Neverwhere (1996). See more »

An absolute crime that this wonderful mini-series appears not to be available in the UK
23 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was blown away back in 96 when I first watched this TV series. Not only was the story-line way out there compared with most of the rest of the TV output at the time, but also the casting and acting were both superb. I was already a fan of Peter Capaldi, which was one of the reasons I tuned in at the beginning, but I was soon swept up in the whole story and found it one of those strange stories that is completely believable although obviously fantastical. I have always been sorry that it hasn't been repeated on terrestrial TV and was thrilled last summer to find the book freely available. Reading this I found that many of the image from the original broadcast were firmly fixed in my mind and I have been searching websites for information about a DVD. To my amazement the BBC website denies all knowledge of the series at all! What's that all about? I have finally found a supplier in Australia for the DVD - but that's not much use is it? Has anyone else also watched the brilliant Gaiman recent work Mirrormask?
