A subterranean labyrinth of sewers and abandoned tube stations. A somewhere that is Neverwhere... An act of kindness sees Richard Mayhew catapulted from his ordinary life into the strange world of London Below.

Called Islington. Accompanied by the mysterious Door and her companions, the Marquis de Carabas and the bodyguard Hunter, Richard embarks on an extraordinary quest to escape from the fiendish assassins Croup and Vandemar and to discover who ordered them to murder her family - all the while trying to get back to his old life in London Above.

Contains over 25 minutes of additional unbroadcast material, including extended scenes, bloopers and outtakes. 3 CDs. 3 hrs 48 mins.

"Maggs... does soundscapes after the manner of Turner painting sea storms. In Neverwhere when Benedict Cumberbatch flew you heard, saw and felt his angel's wings rise." -- The Telegraph * Gillian Reynolds * "funny but haunting... black humour and deft characterisations" -- Chris Maume * The Independent *
