Story Here

And in a shocking twist, it's actually set in the Victorian era!

I can't begin to describe how excited I already am for this!  Grin

First announced 2 years ago.  Looks like it's well & truly been given the green light now.

Very interesting - definitely one to look out for in the schedules. The article could do with a little fact checking, though - saying that Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, set during the Napoleonic wars, was in the Victorian era...

Yours,

I am very much looking forward to this!  I always said WotW needed to be a miniseries to be properly done.

There are also TWO audio drama adaptations in-the-works, if you didn't already know:

https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-martian-invasion-of-earth-1603

I'm also starting an audio drama thread so I don't completely thread-jack this one  Grin

Have you never wondered what it would be like to walk between the ticks and tocks of Time?
