You either dig the BBC aesthetic- especially the old one- or you don't. It's never bothered me, especially when the material is first rate. In fact there's something right about seeing Neil Gaiman's text writ small on the small screen. The point is that even with truncated effects and an overly theatrical delivery Gaiman's story and dialogue shines bright. Neverwhere is every bit as entertaining as it was 15 years ago and this new edition features a new intro from Gaiman as well as a new commentary featuring Gaiman, Lenny Henry and producer Clive Brill, another commentary that was part of the older set with just Gaiman and the original Gaiman interview as well. You also get a photo gallery, a character guide and a map insert of the Never-verse. Of course there is still no stateside BluRay release but this is a solid updating of a previously decent release.
