Try not to scream, but here's a little sneak peek — well, sneak listen, at least — of BBC 4's radio production of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, showcasing Benedict Cumberbatch's pipes. Listen to the sullen tones of the beautiful angel Islington! Dear heavens, he's even more beautiful when he sings!

If you haven't read Neverwhere (it's time) the story takes place in the bowels of London, called London Below, which is filled with fantastic creatures. The story is told though main character Richard Mayhew (voiced by James McAvoy) and the young lady Door (Natalie Dormer) as they journey through London Below. The amazing cast also includes Anthony Head as Croup and Christopher Lee as the Earl of Earl's Court.

Neverwhere will premiere on BBC Radio 4 this Saturday.
