We wrote on Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere before, and now that the Neverwhere adaptation has been released and we’ve had time to digest the content, we at Larkable have something to say about it.

As one of my personal favorite books, I already had mixed feelings about how a TV show adaptation might ‘ruin’ my well-imagined world of men and mystery. Now, with the announcement that HBO is no longer handling the production of the show, doubt continues to grow.
