Else­where, Jack (Daniel Liss­ing) looks into the mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the burn­ing of Coal Val­ley’s only church. Another new episode im­me­di­ately fol­lows.

Mean­while, Jonathan Strange (Ber­tie Carvel), his pow­ers grow­ing, comes to Lon­don hop­ing to ap­pren­tice with a de­cid­edly re­luc­tant Nor­rell in the new episode “How Is Lady Pole?.”
