What Does Stephen Say About the Series?

Stephen Butchard, the creator of the show, who has adapted the book says, “Writing Shardlake has been nothing short of a joy. C.J. Sansom’s novels are incredibly rich in story, character, and history; full of intrigue, excitement, cruelty, and compassion — and at the center of it all is Matthew Shardlake, a hero like no other.

Although these stories are set in Tudor England, the themes engage and resonate with today’s world. Hundreds of years may have passed — but humankind and what makes us tick has changed little.”

Shardlake Season 1 Plotline: What to Expect with the Show?

Teasing the plot, the makers say: “Shardlake’s sheltered life as a lawyer is turned upside down when Cromwell instructs him to investigate the murder of one of his commissioners at a monastery in the remote town of Scarnsea.

“The commissioner was gathering evidence to close the monastery and it is now imperative for Cromwell’s political survival that Shardlake both solves the murder and closes the monastery.

“He leaves Shardlake in no doubt that failure is not an option. Cromwell insists that he is accompanied by cocky, good-looking Jack Barak and Shardlake is left unsure whether Barak is an assistant or Cromwell’s spy.  At Scarnsea, the duo is met with hostility, suspicion, and paranoia by the monks who fear for their future and will seemingly stop at nothing to preserve their order.”

How is the Shardlake Series different from the Novel?

As most people have already read the chapters of the novel series, one of the major questions that fans have on the matter is the difference. We have often seen that the adaptation of a novel series is the direct representation of it.

Though there are huge questions on the matter, the creators were quick to confirm it by saying  “His position in society is unfavored due to his appearance, as a person living with scoliosis during the Tudor period, suffering the indignity of being abused as a ‘crookback’ wherever he turns.”

Along with that, the creators also talk about the cast by deeming it unattractive but after the release of the teaser promo, one can see how handsome the cast is.
