Delightfully dreamlike fantasy in a modern setting. Absolutely hits the admittedly niche mark for me. A+ Bring a hefty dose of suspension of disbelief to surmount the cheese-ball acting, dialog, sets, and costumes... all of which I find endearing! <3

It's often been said that you like Gaiman's fantasy, or you don't, but that's not quite true. Personally, I like it fine, but it fades from my memory like cotton candy melts on the tongue. This low budget adaptation is more memorable than most. The actors put their hearts into it, there is some snappy dialogue, and the story does not gallop madly off in all directions. BONUS: two commentary tracks; Peter Capaldi as an angel, wearing a nightgown and honking big contact lenses.

As another reviewer said, it is low budget (it's BBC after all), but well done and faithful to Gaiman's brand of "urban fantasy". My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The DVD has very much the feeling of a Dr Who episode. The acting is excellent, the special effects are a little cheesy but that does not detract from the experience. The characters are a little quirky (and in many cases a lot quirky) It seems almost to be a Dr Who meets Diskworld meets Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
