60 minutes

Set at the beginning of the 19th-century, England no longer believes in practical magic. The reclusive Mr Norrell (Marsan) of Hurtfew Abbey stuns the city of York when he causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. With a little persuasion and help from his man of business Childermass (Enzo Cilenti), he goes to London to help the government in the war against Napoleon. It is there Norrell summons a fairy (Warren) to bring Lady Pole (Englert) back from the dead, opening a whole can of worms…

What a beautiful show! One season, excellent actors, great atmosphere and plot. I once tried to read the book but I'm not a big fan of that kind of writing so I'm very glad someone chose to make a series out of it especially since it's so brilliant. You find yourself caught in the story, you are eager to know what's going to happen and who is this raven king ? It's one of the best shows I've seen this year without exaggeration.

I saw the first EP it was slow there were a few shot's that looked good, it is building up to the story I'll will give it a few more EP's. But the character’s do look good plus the city backgrounds.

Brilliant show that will keep you glued to the screen until it is done with you.
Forget the ever-repeating plots and twists of TV shows and watch something more and better as if reading a good book.
That is all I can say about this show without spoiling too much for you, I suggest you now go and watch it.

It's taking time to build a good story, and that is the case here.
If you like magic, you should watch it.

One of the very few costume dramas that I have ever put some effort into watching. Solid story and impressive CGI for BBC.

It was a rather interesting show about what life would have been like had there been real magic in the world. The actors were great in there assigned roles and the costumes were fabulous. I really enjoyed the short series.

JS and MN is a period drama concerning supernatural magic and a distinguished society of terrible magicians. Why is magic no longer done? There is a dark presence coming to London, can these magicians find the power to fight it?. The music brings a beautiful ambiance to this mystical study of magic. The characters are inspirational, original and wishful. The storyline is a good one and script is very crisp.

a great adaption of a great novel.
especially jonathan strange is played amazingly. he seems really strange at the beginning and rather annoying but he grows on you. he ended up being my favourite.
some things were changed from the book but that is a given with any form of screen adaption.
also great minor characters.
the whole cast was amazing. I loved all of it.
a gripping fantasy story that is fitted so well into a historic setting it might just be true.
