I would like to see him in a major role, not just bit parts/ supporting actor thing.

I am enjoying this series, even the historical fact/ magical fiction amalgamation combine well.

My only niggle, is not enough Paul Kaye so far.

Appeared in Ripper Street amoungst other things, and is, IMHO grossly underated and underused as an actor.

This week I've seen Paul Kaye in 'Jonathan Strange', 'The Interceptor' and 'Humans', all on TV now, and recently in 'Dracula Untold', the movie.
He'll be back soon in the new series of sitcom 'Friday Night Dinner' and several episodes of the next series of 'Doctor Who'.

He'll also be in the new movies 'Tomorrow' about soldiers returning from war with 'PTSD' and 'Pan' the forthcoming Peter Pan 'origin' movie.

Apart from that he doesn't seem to be very busy...  Grin

All well n good but when are going to get a new Dennis Pennis series?

Well, that was superb.

I wonder how long it will take Susanna Clarke to complete the sequel and if the BBC will film it.
''Clarke is currently working on a book that begins a few years after Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell ends. It will centre on characters such as Childermass and Vinculus who, as Clarke says, are "a bit lower down the social scale".

I'd certainly look forward to it.

I enjoyed it.
While still peppered with useless crap that the likes of ITV/HTV (channel 3 in the uk)and channel 5 keep kicking out, BBC and Channel 4 are starting to output some very high quality drama's.
Dare I say it, I could live without Dr Who if this trend keeps up!

I suffer from a random misfiring synapse and a bad case of wolfen the turns me into a seven-foot-tall werewolf or a seven-foot great wolf!
