He’s a dashing librarian. She is a talented artist. But in the six-volume adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s venerable novel, Henry DeTamble’s subsequent encounter and love story (According to James, Sanditon) and Clare Abshire (Leslie Roses, Game of Thrones) is anything but typical.
Cursed with a genetic disorder that causes him to unintentionally time travel, Henry often finds himself thrust into the past or future with no clothes on his back. It’s dangerous, but a big part of his luck is that the universe sends him Clare. (She’s actually known Henry since childhood, when his future self was her “imaginary friend.”)
The time travel element is “a prism through which we see an ordinary love story. By shuffling it all, it becomes fresh and joyful and sometimes scary and tragic,” The Time Traveler’s Wife manufacturer’s implementation Steven Moffat, a self-proclaimed “big fan” of the book.
However, this couple’s relationship has a time limit, as fate always awaits them. “You need the drumbeat of doom that Audrey’s prose delivers,” Moffat said, “I hope I found a way to convey that visually, right from the very first episode. You won’t miss it! ”
