The Sandman creator Neil Gaiman condemned viewers who have criticised the show’s diverse cast and characters. Back in August, the fantasy drama premiered on the popular streamer to critical acclaim.
Based on Gaiman’s comic of the same name, the series follows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), one of the seven Endless and the personification of dreams.
After being released from a 106-year-long imprisonment, Morpheus sets out on a tumultuous adventure to rebuild his realm, The Dreaming, and figure out who was responsible for his capture.
While the show has been praised for accurately adapting the comic book, fans have also lauded the series for its inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters – including Desire (Mason Alexander Park), Johanna Constantine (Jenna Coleman) and Alex Burgess (Laurie Kynaston).
