Post Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrel
A series that I find solidly RL in feel, this BBC fantasy drama concerns the rivalry between two magicians as they attempt to herald the return of English Magic. Set in the Regency it is closer, in costume at least, to the more civilised core domains, and the settings of the misty moors of Yorkshire and the foggy streets of London could not more like the Mordentish moorland estates and cramped Zherisian streets. Thematically too, I find the use of fairy creatures, servants of the Raven King, carefully worded but painfully misunderstood agreements, doom laden prophecies, changlings, madness, kidnapped wives and more, all amply provide a RL fan with fodder.

I heartily recommend, is anybody else watching?
