Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell posts

The BBC One 7-part adaptation of Susanna Clarke's novel Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell airs Sunday in the UK. The novel has a depth and breadth that may be tough to dramatize, and is part of a continuity that includes short stories by Clarke. Is there interest in having two sets of posts for this series, one for readers and one for non-readers? It would be similar with what's going on for Game of Thrones and Outlander, but for only a short while.
