Cast of Gaiman's 'Neverwhere' Revealed

Everyone's favourite goth author Neil Gaiman has got together with Radio 4 to turn his fantasy story 'Neverwhere' into a radio play.

'Neverwhere' was originally commissioned as a television series by the BBC in 1996 from the British born author, who later expanded it into a novel. It tells the story of a Londoner who becomes involved in 'London Below', a more sinister side to the Underground that is not visible to everyday people.

The cast have been confirmed with James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) to play lead role 'Richard Mayhew'. Other big names to star include Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch, Game Of Thrones Natalie Dormer, Sophie Okonedo from Doctor Who and David Harewood of Homeland fame. Christopher Lee and Bernard Cribbins are also set to make an appearance in what will undoubtedly become a cult radio series.

Written by Dirk Maggs (the pen behind new episodes of the Hitch-hikers Guide To The Galaxy in 2003) the first instalment is due at 6pm on Saturday 16th March on Radio 4. The following five episodes will be broadcast on digital station Radio 4 Extra from Monday 18th March.
