Doctor Who writer Peter Harness has revealed that he’d “love to carry on” BBC One’s Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.
Speaking exclusively to CultBox to promote the show’s release on DVD and Blu-ray this week, Harness told us: “I’m sure that if Susanna wrote a sequel, then we’d do our best to make it happen. I mean, I’d love to carry on writing Strange and Norrell for as long as possible.”
He added: “I’ve never loved doing a job so much. If there were ten books, I’d be doing it forever and I think I’d be very happy with that. It would be impossible to get bored of doing it. I love the world, and I love those characters, and I love Susanna’s imagination and heart.”
Asked if there was any possibility of a TV-only follow-up featuring an all-new story, he commented: “As for making a TV-only-follow-up, I think it’s unlikely.”
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
