First Photo: “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell”

BBC America has unveiled the first official photo from their upcoming drama series adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s acclaimed novel “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” which goes to air sometime next year.

The shot showcases actors Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan as Strange and Norrell respectively in this take on the 800 page story of feuding magicians, all set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars.

Peter Harness (“Wallander,” “Is Anybody There?”) adapted the book which is part fantasy and part historical drama. Alice Englert, Marc Warren, Samuel West and Charlotte Riley also star.
