Two exciting pieces of news from Neil Gaiman: First of all, check out the cast photo above. Who are all these lovely people? Why, they are actors currently recording a Neverwhere Radio Series in England. And they sent Neil Gaiman (you might know about him, he’s the author and stuff) a picture of them partying down.
Yes, you are seeing faces such as Benedict Cumberbatch, James McAvoy and Anthony Head all working together to create a lovely audio rendering of Gaiman’s novel. We’re also informed that Bernard Cribbins (that’s Wilf from Doctor Who) is going to be voicing Old Bailey. The ’Batch is Islington, Head is Mr. Croup, and McAvoy is none other than Richard, our Scottish protagonist. So... who’s playing Hunter? Theories!
We want this radio series. Can we have it now? As an early holiday present?
In other news, Gaiman tweeted last night that he’s started working on the pilot episode for the much anticipated HBO American Gods series—while listening to our very own American Gods Mix Tape! Last month, Gaiman had said that he’d be turning in a new draft of the pilot as soon as he finished his script for Doctor Who, so it seems we’ll have all kinds of Gaiman-inspired awesomeness to look forward to in the next year or so!
Stubby the Rocket is the Tor.com mascot. Stubby gives everyone coal for the holidays and thinks it’s kind—it’s fuel after all.
