The plot is a mini-series based on the eponymous novel by Susanna Clarke, and she wrote it for 10 years. The film created a very high quality: here and magic offered to a high level, and battle scenes, and decorated with lots of love entourage of other worlds, which are sorcerers, following the path of the king-crow. The show is set in an alternate England of the 19th century.
This was the period of the Napoleonic wars, and then the magic is almost nothing left except the rogues in yellow tents and society of wizards who are not, but revel in their own importance. English magic, once lost, it is at this point back thanks to two wizards. One of them - a conservative and narcissistic Gilbert Norrell, has earned the nickname "bookworm." The second - an inquisitive and daring newcomer Jonathan Strange. These characters are so different around (also in relation to the world of magic), it becomes clear how their paths might converge. But, as often happens, the best people come together in the face of common danger.
Norrell made a deal with the dark otherworldly forces to resurrect the daughter of a powerful government official, and he did it. But the magician did not know what would be the price of this act. Unwittingly, he launched a series of tragic and unpredictable events that threaten to destroy the whole of England ... whether Mr Norrell and Jonathan Strange Will stop otherworldly power?
