The year is 1806. England is beleaguered by the long war with Napoleon, and centuries have passed since practical magicians faded into the nation’s past. But scholars of this glorious history discover that one remains: the reclusive Mr. Norrell, whose displays of magic send a thrill through the country. Proceeding to London, he raises a beautiful woman from the dead and summons an army of ghostly ships to terrify the French. Yet the cautious, fussy Norrell is challenged by the emergence of another magician: the brilliant novice Jonathan Strange. Young, handsome and daring, Strange is the very antithesis of Norrell. So begins a dangerous battle between the two great men. Their obsessions and secret dabblings with the dark arts will cause more trouble than they can imagine.

I have read the book at least three times now, and I always discover something new, and watching this mini series, I'm discovering even more!
They have done an amazing task (and a big task too, considering the size of the book) in transforming this magical book to the TV screen!
I highly recommend this Blu Ray edition in all of its high def magical glory, along with the fantastic soundtrack cd!
footnote...I live in Canada where this blu ray was NOT available, so I imported it...so glad I did, and so will you!!!
Well worth owning, I have watched mine a number of times already.
Image and sound of the blu-ray are nethertheless a bit too compressed (1080i DD 2.0). It downgrades a bit the whole experience.
Bonuses are too short, but it was great to see how the actors looks and sounds like out of their character.
I also bought the German blu-ray that has got the DTS HD MA 5.1 english sound and the 1080p cristal clear image. All the special effect and HD details glorioulsly stand out. No english subtiles and no bonuses although but I would give the german blu-ray five stars.
This is a 2-disc DVD, with 7 episodes. Special Features-wise, the 'Making of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell' is a good length with interesting cast and crew interviews. There's also a number of deleted scenes and a short blooper reel (made up almost entirely of horses' comical bowel movements). Overall fun extras but nothing special!
I personally found the series to be well-paced at first, though a little rushed in the last two episodes - others may find it to be a little slow to get going, but it's worth sticking with. The adaptation is mostly faithful (and the small changes made seem reasonable), although towards the end it veers fairly far off of the book - I'd recommend reading the book first to get the full effect, but this is still very enjoyable as a standalone TV series and definitely worth a watch.
