Peter Capaldi's worked with Gaiman before. Here he is in the original TV version of Neverwhere from 1996.

Also in the clip you'll see Paterson Joseph, whose name comes up every time it's Doctor casting season, and Clive Russell, better known to O-Deckers, I'm sure, as Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully from Game of Thrones.

If you're planning to watch/read/listen to Neverwhere in the future I'd suggest skipping this clip as it's the denouement of the story, but Capaldi's on fine form here, and very young looking.
