If you know this book then you already know it is filled with fine bizarre magic plots.

Probably one of my top 3 books of all time. A magnificent piece of work. Hopefully the BBC will do it justice.

Lets hope the BBC get it right, should be goo if it is done right.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Should be good, the BBC usually do a good job. With Toby Haynes directing I'm sure they'll be using Doctor Who and Sherlock production crew, so I'm hopeful it will be decent. It is a big book though for them to do, be interesting to see how they go about it.

If they can do the rain ships and the tunnel through the snow properly, they'll have a success.

And the hand at the battle of Waterloo!
And the casting of Strange and Norrell!
I'm happy this is happening! I've been doing a Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell based act ever since I read the book!
And I wouldn't be exagerating claiming it my all time favorite!
For those of you who are interested: I've been an avid contributer to these pages: http://hurtfew.wikispaces.com/

So thank you Mr Garland for this most excellent news!

I found it to be a very haunting book. Looking forward to seeing how this develops, glad it was BBC who picked this up. Thanks

And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
to dispel the sufferings of the world.

Its down as being seven, hour long episodes, so looks like they won't be cutting corners.

Now playing.
I have watched the five of seven episodes. I think they are excellent.

Season one? I wonder how many seasons it will run?

The show came on before I could finish the book.

BBc is doing some great stuff, I am very curious about this adaption.
Has anyone seen the Red Riding Trilogy based serie, aired by the BBC 6 or 7 years ago (i can't remember well)?
To me a masterpiece
