Neil Gaiman is an incredible author. He’s an incredible storyteller. That isn’t really an opinion. It’s more of a known fact. He can create worlds within this world, and make us almost believe it’s real. He can create characters that seem like they’re on the edges of society, but really, they’re just like us.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is no exception.

So you guys know how I was freaking out about BBC Radio 4’s production of Neverwhere? Well, it aired this past Saturday. And it’s so good. Seriously. I really dig radio plays, and I really dig pretty much everything BBC does (*cough* hence why I want to work there *cough*). Give it a shot! It’s got Neil himself as a character! Check it out here. It’s about an hour per section, but it’s perfectly eerie and spooky. And it’s got Anthony Head as Croup!
Okay, so in case you guys didn’t know, us kids here at the Nerdicon adore Neil Gaiman. A lot. A lot a lot. And the lovely folks at Radio 4 in the UK are doing a radio adaptation of Neil’s novel Neverwhere. I know I talked about the miniseries version of it on our last podcast, but HOLY CRAP, TALK ABOUT AN AMAZING AWESOME CAST. I’m talkin’ James McAvoy, Natalie Dorner, ANTHONY HEAD YOU GUYS, Benedict Cumberbatch, CHRISTOPHER FREAKIN’ LEE. Okay, that’s not even the entire cast, but that’s just a hint of the awesomeness that’s going to air. There’s an hour long episode on March 16th, and you can be damn sure I’ll be here flailing about talking about it.
