Susanna Clarke's fantasy novel set during the Napoleonic Wars, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, is being adapted for BBC television — and let's hope we get it pretty quickly here in the United States. The six-issue miniseries is being directed by Toby Haynes, who directed a bunch of Matt Smith's Doctor Who stories in a row and also a key episode of the BBC's Sherlock. (See here for our interview with Haynes.) Adapting this massive novel for television will be writer Peter Harness, who also wrote the third season of the show Wallander. No clue yet who's starring in the thing. Let's hope they don't mess this one up! [Den of Geek, thanks Dirk Fitzgerald!]
