He shows great range throughout the twenty episodes, going from weak to powerful to somewhere in between. Den of Geek James McAvoy voices Morpheus – also known as Dream of The Endless, lord of the sleeping world. Secondly, he could give us whatever accent we wanted. When I was working on the mix the other week, my wife said, “Who is that playing that part?” She couldn’t believe it when I told her, because Miriam so moves away from where she is normally to do this part.

And in adapting the comic, one might want to retain as much of it as humanly possible. But The Sandman isn’t a book, it’s a comic book, and its audiobook isn’t just translating textual words to spoken ones. The most obvious example is Desire.

Having a pre-existing knowledge about some of the original sources, especially some of the comic character related stories, will add to the enjoyment of the story, but I don’t think it’s necessary to know what the reference is.

The Sandman rarely allows that to happen. That episode is pretty much a single-hander, a sort of half-hour single-hander play, or a single-actor movie. It was uncanny. A couple of important points about Sandman worth noting: Sandman is, at its heart, a story about stories.

The Sandman was written and set between 1988 and 1996, and was undoubtedly informed by contemporary events like the AIDS epidemic in America and England.
