A good watch

On a sunny morning in the Duchy I have just finished watching a splendid new drama (?) on BBC one,but more of that anon. Have you ever tried to get into a novel and try again and again only to discard it? This happened to me with "Johnathon Strange and Mr Norrel" which in the end I passed onto a charity shop and thought no more upon the matter.Until now that is when I gave the tv adaption a go and found it excellent.Who knows I may try the book one day...


  1. I did enjoy the book, the way it was presented as fact gave one a feeling of somehow having missed the fact that magicians and faeries helped change the course of the Peninsula war (if I remember correctly). Must try the TV series out.

  2. I watched the first episode and I think I'll probably watch another as there seemed to be some potential of a good series in there somewhere.

  3. I couldn't get into the book either. Haven't seen anything about a TV series.

    1. Its on BBC 1 in the uk,can you get iplayer where you are on the Internet?
