Descend into the shadows of London Below...
Richard Oliver Mayhew (Gary Bakewell) is an ordinary man trying to live an ordinary life in London. When Door (Laura Fraser) stumbles, literally, across his path he is moved to help her. This kindness destroys his normal existence as he is drawn into the world of London Below. Pursued by the evil Mr. Croup (Hywel Bennett) and Mr. Vandemar (Clive Russell), Richard, Door, Hunter (Tanya Moodie) and The Marquis De Carabas (Paterson Joseph) must solve the mystery of the murder of Door's family and find a way to get Richard back home.
Neil Gaiman wrote this series for the BBC. While producing it he decided that he could flesh the world out more in a novel, which he published two years later.moreless
