Has anyone seen the Neverwhere film?

I found it on Play.com but haven't quite decided whether to buy it or not.... Is it as good as the book??
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

It's actually a TV series - I managed to watch the whole thing on YouTube and enjoyed it. It's a pretty good adaptation. :wink:

Actually, the TV series is not an adaptation of the book at all. It is the other way around. I have it on video and think it is really good, although some of the special effects are not so great.

I didn't know that Anne. That makes a lot of sense as they pretty much follow each other. :)
