Starring Rose Leslie, of Game of Thrones fame, and Theo James from the Divergent trilogy as Clare Abshire and Henry DeTamble, the series is expected to follow much the same plot of the book.
Clare and Henry are very much in love but a genetic disorder sees him involuntarily time travelling from time to time, to different times and aspects in his life.
Although this gives him greater insight into his relationship with Clare, and how it will eventually, and devastatingly, end Clare is left waiting for him for long periods of her life as she remains on the one, linear timeline.
"It’s a story of happy ever after – but not necessarily in that order.”
How different is The Time Traveler's Wife TV series to the book it is based on?
The series is written by Steven Moffatt, who knows his way around a mind-bending time-travel series, given he was instrumental to the creation of the Doctor Who re-boot.
However, he has long been a fan of Audrey’s, and there seems to be something a little bit meant-to-be about his involvement in the series.
“I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it,” Steven has said of the novel.
“In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ as a direct response to it.
“When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realised she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true.
“The brave new world of long form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after – but not necessarily in that order.”
