Like satsumas and hangovers, the annual BBC Radio 4 Neil Gaiman drama has established itself as an essential festive tradition. Following its 2013 Neverwhere dramatisation, Radio 4 brought us Good Omens, Stardust, and How The Marquis Got His Coat Back, as well as featuring The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains as a book of the week, all at Christmastime.
