Win Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell on DVD

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

IT’S one of the BBC’s most ambitious and bold productions to date, a major new adaptation of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, and following its hugely anticipated, seven-week run on BBC One, it makes its DVD and Blu-ray bow on June 29, 2015 courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label.

Featuring a slew of great British acting talent with Bertie Carvel (Coalition) and Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) as the eponymous magicians, alongside Marc Warren (Mad Dogs), Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) and Alice Englert (New Worlds), Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell features mind-blowing magic and stunning effects like never seen before on the small screen.

The year is 1806. England is beleaguered by the long war with Napoleon, and centuries have passed since practical magicians became the stuff of legend. But scholars of this glorious history discover that one remains: the reclusive Mr. Norrell (Marsan), 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 (Carvel). Young, handsome and daring, Strange is the very antithesis of Norrell. So begins a dangerous battle between the two great men.
