Differences between series and novel?[edit]

Should we include a summary of differences between the series and the novel? I wouldn't want to see one of those awful lists of trivial items, but a few lines might be of interest to readers. I'd give it a shot myself, but haven't seen the series recently or often enough to remember what was different. CKarnstein 04:36, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Fate of the Marquis[edit]

It's just a teeny little detail, but the article in its current state (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Neverwhere_%28novel%29&diff=149502188&oldid=148478347) says that Mr. Vandemar and Mr. Croup 'break' their one hour agreement with the Marquis after he extracts the information he needed. The way I remember reading it, they don't necessarily 'break' the agreement, they just managed to find a loophole and follow the Marquis as he ran away for the entire hour that he wanted. Then, after the hour, they ended up doing what they did. Am I right? - 68.39.93.179 20:48, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

yes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.35.105.233 (talk) 21:18, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

The Farthest Door[edit]

In this article, it is suggested that Door possibly chose Hell as the farthest location she could reach. I thought it was pretty obvious within the novel that she opened a door to outer space, due to the fact that (as I recall), Richard saw what looked like a star, and a vacuum is created as all the air is being sucked out into the emptiness of space.

Fair use rationale for Image:Neverwhere.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Neverwhere.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Wrong info about the market[edit]

The intro in the article says this about the difference between the TV series and the book: Most notable is the appearance of the Floating Market at Harrods (in the novel) rather than on-board HMS Belfast (the tv series). In the book, there are markets at both places, at different times. Rkarlsba (talk) 13:09, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

I've corrected this - the TV series uses Battersea Power Station and HMS Belfast where the book uses Harrods and Belfast —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.86.168.207 (talk) 13:57, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Fate of Anaesthesia[edit]

Novel does not state that Anaesthesia is killed by the Night on the Nightsbridge. Rather "taken" is the verb used. "Sometimes they come back." So there is hope. Bluefox79830 (talk) 16:15, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
