Late last year, Neil Gaiman shared with us the news that Dirk Maggs would be adapting his novel Neverwhere into a radio drama for BBC Radio 4. The series, starring James McAvoy as a man who finds himself in the mysterious world of London Below, has officially been announced to air on Saturday, March 16th, and weekly after that. Which I think means I might make my first ever weekly reviews of a radio programme. Should be fun.
The series also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Anthony Stewart Head, and Christopher Lee. This will be the third version of the tale, having started life as a TV series, becoming a book, and now a radio play. So, the exact opposite path that Hitchhiker's Guide took to existence.
