Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Writer Neil Gaiman's dark fantasy miniseries gives new meaning to the term "London Underground." Gaiman plumbs the deeper recesses of his gothic imagination to posit a supernatural realm that exists as an extension of the city's subway system, extending beneath the above-ground world we know. The story itself unravels mysteriously, following unsuspecting everyman Richard Mayhew Gary Bakewell through the alternate reality on a journey to help Door Laura Fraser, a woman from "London Below," avenge her family's death. Gaiman uses the modern-day setting to make an already strange fantasy that much stranger: Unmarked city doors lead to dimensions both subterranean and otherwise: Villains gleefully eat rats and play golf with frogs in this world, where a medieval system of fiefdom and fealty prevails. Some of Gaiman's more creative details were apparently too much for the budget, inspiring the author to later turn the story into his first novel. Nonetheless, the intrigue of the plot remains thick here, and hints that the whole thing may or may not be Richard's delusion keep things deliciously ambiguous. Gaiman fans will savor the return of this little-seen series, and neophytes, although they may do better to start with the novel, will undoubtedly find their darker interests sparked.

    Great viewing for those who enjoy British television

    Niel Gaiman, and Lenny Henry brought this to life years ago. While most enjoy the book which came later this is a fun series. Some of the charm for this series comes from understanding the setting in London, and the British sense of humour. It works on two levels, and it is a series I watch again, and again.

    It does take a bit of willingness to overlook some of the difference between the way most of us in the USA view fantasy.

    Springboard for a terrific novel

    The miniseries came first; the novel made it better. Even so, it's worth seeing. Laura Fraser (perhaps best known as Kate the Blacksmith in 'A Knight's Tale') is a lovely Door . Paterson Joseph is a perfect Marquis De Carabis. It's a story of London Above and the infinitely more intriguing London Below, of myth and urban legend, of fairy tale and lore.... it's a story of darkness and light and the old songs and the busker and the beggar. Gaiman is a masterful storyteller. Enjoy, and then pick up the novel for an even richer experience.

    WARNING! VIEWING THIS VIDEO MAY BE HAZARDOUS!

    I enjoyed the book. I wouldn't say I loved it...but it was ok. I liked it enough to try to watch the series....BAD MISTAKE! Has got to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The quality is bad, the acting is bad....all in all...I hate that I read the book and I hate it even more that I wasted money and time on this video. Save yourself the time..

    Read the book instead

    We had fun with this show but it is really dated. The book is cool though. The book actually came from the show, when Gaiman didn't feel the show actually captured his vision (or something like that). Anyway, this DVD isn't for everyone but you might like it if you don't mind not very good quality 80' type visuals.
