I am a sucker for supernatural shows. I own the novel for Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. I haven’t read it yet, but I take it as a sign that I have interest in this show. Proof is most likely very procedural, but I am willing to try it out. The Whispers seems to be trying so hard to be weird that it seems annoying.
