Synopsis:
Beneath the familiar streets of London lies a city without limits. Its fiefdoms and baronies are inhabited by knights in armour and soulsucking girls in black velvet, Rat Speakers and sewer people and the myriad of other tribes, gangs and individuals who gather at the Floating Market. There is an Angel called Islington (Peter Capaldi) and an Earl (Freddie Jones) who holds court on an Underground train. There is a beast in a labyrinth and Black Friars who guard a powerful key. And there is a girl called Door who seeks to solve the mystery of her parents' bloody murder - and avoid getting killed herself.
One act of kindness throws Richard Mayhew (Gary Bakewell), a young businessman with a routine job and an upwardly mobile girlfriend, into a world his dreams could only hint at. In London Below, even minding the gap is a life-threatening exercise. So where does he fit into all this? And can he ever get back?

Unusual, weird - Neverwhere review by AB

Spoiler Alert
15/12/2019

An unusual fantasy world exists below London, populated by quirky characters - The Angel [called] Islington, etc.

Not a great storyline, with some poor sub-plots [even a murderous beast that looked more like a Highland Cow than anything else] with any suspense but watchable as you try to find out what happens next.

My only major gripe would be the series title: Neverwhere is a rubbish title and it should have been something like "London Life Below", "Underwhere" or something equally as odd to try and catch your attention.
