It's on the BBC4 Extra station and is rather good... :)

And on Friday (i.e. tomorrow) it'll be available as a mp3 download I think! :D

Oh, and of course there's the FREE Postmortem Games rpg of it here :tiphat:

(Which I'm rather tempted to run. I SO love Neverwhere!)

This totally passed me by! I remember the TV show - much derided but I thought it was pretty good. I have the book - signed by Mr Gaiman himself!

Thanks for this, I will head there forthwith!

Listening to this. Absolutely fantastic cast: James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer, Benedict Cumberbatch, Christopher Lee, Anthony Head, Bernard Cribbins... Waiting for the downloadable episodes to keep. Not just available for UK listeners - international bods can hear it too:)

Let us know when and if it is downloadable!

It's on the BBC catchup now.

The 1st episode (and looks like it'll only be that :( ), is available as a download on the bbc podcast areahttp://www.bbc.co.uk...asts/series/ptw (Hmm, may have to rip the rest then...)

Should be available on iTunes under BBC Drama...hmm, does only look to be 1st one at the moment. They are meant to all be coming out as far as I know, perhaps one a day?

Just did the 1st one, loving it so far.

I was worried they would geo-lock the stream

Mr Gaiman helpfully retweeted a link to this useful little programme, enabling you to download all the episodes from the BBC site as .mp3 files. When you doubleclick on 'BBC Radio' after installation, scroll down past the bullet points (that'll make sense when you've installed it).

I presume they're not going to release it as a commercial release then? A bit surprising to be honest!

I presumed as only the first episode is available as a download that that's exactly what'll happen.

I listened to the first episode only to find out that the remaining five wouldn't be braodcast on Radio 4 but, rather, on 4 Extra. That kind of turned me off really. I've nothing against 4 Extra. It's great for listening to all those lovely old episodes of Hancock's Half Hour and the like. But to only play one episode of a series as an advert for another channel - an advert so subtle that they didn't even bother to mention they wouldn't be broadcasting the rest of it on the same station, means that when on Friday I listened to Feedback and discovered I would not simply be able to tune in over the weekend and pick up where I left off it left a sour taste in my mouth.

It's all a nefarious plot to make you buy a digital radio... :P

I listen to a fair bit of "new" radio on there - The Scarifyers has been on there for a start.

There have been some fantastic scifi serials on there, in the '7th Dimension' section.

Thanks for passing that on Isis, I just found this thread and don't have time to listen to it all over Easter (much less anchored at my computer). I was despairing that I would miss out. :)
