    Description

    Paterson Joseph stars as the Marquis de Carabas in this brand-new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Neil Gaiman's spin-off short story, set in the magical world of Neverwhere.

    Returning us to London Below, this enchanting tale continues the story of one of the most colourful characters from Neverwhere - the cool, charming, resourceful Marquis de Carabas, who trades in favours and always has a plan....

    The Marquis' coat is a thing of wonder and beauty. Sleek, stylish and 'the colour of a wet street at midnight', it has numerous pockets, sumptuous sleeves and the power to transform a young sneak thief into a nobleman. And now it is missing, sold by the Sewer Folk. To reclaim it, the Marquis must venture into one of the most terrifying parts of the subterranean city, encounter an old enemy, face dreadful dangers and - worst of all - accept help from someone very close to home.

    Expanded and dramatised for Radio 4 by the award-winning Dirk Maggs (Neverwhere, Good Omens, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and codirected by Dirk Maggs and Heather Larmour, this spine-tingling production features a star cast including Adrian Lester, Don Warrington and Bernard Cribbins. Contains 15 minutes of additional unbroadcast material. Duration: 60 mins approx.

    Some say I sound like my younger self!

    If you could sum up Neil Gaiman's How the Marquis Got His Coat Back in three words, what would they be?

    Marquis de Carabas... wait, that's probably not very descriptive! How the Marquis Got His Coat Back is another radio dramatization set in the Neverwhere universe. It adapts the short story of the same name and continues our adventures in London Below as our favorite sarcastic rogue goes after his most prized possession - his truly remarkable coat which he lost during the events of Neverwhere. Given the Marquis is arguably the best character in Neverwhere (fight me), it's enjoyable to follow him. BBC Radio's Neverwhere and Good Omens adaptations are a blast and this one has all the charm of its predecessors.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Isn't it obvious?

    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    PATERSON JOSEPH FROM THE TV MINI-SERIES REPRISES HIS ROLE AS THE MARQUIS. Honestly, do I have to say anything else?

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    You should've heard the sound I made when the Marquis says, "Some say I sound like my younger self!"

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed BBC Radio's dramatization of Neverwhere a couple years ago. It had a stellar cast and was an engaging adaptation. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed David Harewood but Paterson Joseph has always been the Marquis to me and it was so great to hear his voice!

    Loved It

    Seriously a great little continuation of Neverwhere. Personally I'd read several full length novels about the Marquis.

    if only there was more

    Once again Neil Gaiman has brought alive the mysterious London Below allowing us the capacity to wonder at the magic that could exist. I can only hope that more stories will follow.

    The Coat Really Does Make the Marquis

    Before we get The Seven Sisters, the novel-length sequel to Neverwhere, Paterson Joseph and Company take us back on this whip-snap return to London Below. Yes, it's a very brief tour, clocking in at just about an hour. However, for a tasty little side-adventure featuring everyone's favorite Marquis, it''s as good as sipping Atlantean wine.

    The Marquis de Carabas is feeling a little bit at a loss after the events of Neverwhere because he doesn't have his wonderful coat, so he sets upon a quest to get it back. Upon his way he meets the mushroom people, the Elephant, some terrifying shepherds, and a long lost relative. Well, maybe not so lost. That last I found a bit odd, but it mostly worked out to be fun in the end.

    Paterson Joseph, who played the Marquis in the original TV miniseries, returns as the titular character. I was somewhat skeptical about this, because David Harewood's portrayal of de Carabas in the Neverwhere radioplay (with James McAvoy, Christopher Lee, Benedict Cumberbatch, etc.) was so excellent. But I needn't have worried. Joseph is having so much fun, it's impossible for us not to. He even gets to make some cracks about the Marquis looking like his younger self.

    Truth be told, I listened to this story in the Rogues anthology (narrated by Roy Dotrice), and I thought there were some wonderful little tweaks in this version that really let it shine. For example, Richard Mayhew has a brief appearance which helps frame the story, and Old Bailey does a good job of setting up the stakes. Also, the Marquis sounds like himself, and doesn't have a French accent. (C'mon, Roy!)

    Mainly, I was just thrilled to be able to take another trip to London Below, even if it was an incredibly brief one. It was a fun little excursion, and it definitely has me excited and eager for another trip to meet back up with de Carabas, Richard, Door, and the rest of our friends with the Seven Sisters.

    I didn't realize it was just a chapter.

    well I don't think I got my money's worth on this one, after I listen to it I realized chapter 1 was all there was. I wasted a credit on that one hour story. well I guess that's what you get for not reading the details of the book you're buying well enough so I consider this my my fault

    Paterson Joseph is a genius! And so was the entire cast!

    Very entertaining! Well acted! Well adapted! Wish there was more stories coming out of London Below. Paterson Joseph is easily one of my favorite actors. He would be a great Doctor in the Doctor Who series. I wonder is a Marquis de Carabas would make a good series— the producers of Doctor Who and Sherlock should consider the idea... just sayin’...

    Excellent all around

    A wonderful performance, complete with a cameo from the author himself. Definitely recommend it for fans of Neil Gaiman.

    So good

    This adaptation is amazing. If you have read Neverwhere and want more, listen to this instead of just reading it. It makes the good story even better.

    Beautiful Adaptation!

    Gaiman's short novella was great on paper but this adaptation is tremendous. The new prologue with James McAvoy's reappearance as Richard Mayhew is great and connects both adaptations wonderfully.
