Trivia

Neil Gaiman originally created characters named Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemaar for a children's book he started, but never finished, when he was 18. In the story, they are sitting in a cellar in 14th century England eating a puppy. Gaiman had forgotten about the story, created what he thought were brand new characters for Neverwhere named Croup and Vandemaar, and only remembered their original appearance later when he ran across a copy of the children's story while cleaning out some of his papers.

Quotes

Mr. Croup: Were I you, I would no longer worry about the young lady. Her days are numbered, and the number in question isn't even in double digits.

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 »

My God! It's Neil Gaiman!
4 April 2000 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is simply incredible. At the same time dark and brooding, funny and silly, and outright weird. In a nutshell: True Neil Gaiman.

I did not read the book before I saw the series, but now I have read the book and I was struck by how well made the series is. It feels the same way as the book -- and I don't think I need to say how rare that is... Very Neil Gaiman! Now I just wait for the adaptation of The Sandman...
