Neverwhere Clips: Benedict Cumberbatch Sings, James McAvoy Explores London Below Up Above

The first episode of Dirk Maggs‘ adaptation of NeverwhereNeil Gaiman’s underLondon fantasia on the disenfranchised will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 this Saturday. The remaining episodes will play out in the following week.

Below are a few clips featuring James McAvoy as Richard Mayhew, our hero, and Benedict Cumberbatch as The Angel Islington, our… Angel.

You’ll also hear David Harewood as The Marquis De Carabas, and he rather remarkably holds his own in comparison to the TV version’s astonishing, unforgettable – and superbly ostentatious – performance by Patterson Joseph. Really, it was hearing Harewood not feel like a sad second-place that’s given me the most hope for this Neverwhere.

The first, one-hour episode kicks off at 2.30 on Saturday afternoon on BBC Radio 4. This disturbs my Pick of the Pops routine a little, but I’ll be there.

I believe you’ll be able to listen in online, globally. All as a guest Britain and those who pay their license fee.

You’re welcome.
