"Nobody anticipated the impact the BBC's 2013 adaptation of Neil
Gaiman's cult novel by the same name would have... the production
was a smash hit with Gaiman fans and non-fans alike, propelling the
audio play into the public eye and showing just how exciting the
form can be." * The Guardian *
"Maggs... does soundscapes after the manner of Turner painting sea storms. In Neverwhere when Benedict Cumberbatch flew you heard, saw and felt his angel's wings rise." -- The Telegraph * Gillian Reynolds *
"funny but haunting... black humour and deft characterisations" -- Chris Maume * The Independent *
