In 2016, BBC Radio 4 debuted a three-part adaptation of The Magus. Faithfully adapted from John Fowles’ magnificent novel by acclaimed dramatist and screenwriter Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn, Peter and Wendy, The Musketeers, Survivors, etc.), the radio drama stars Tom Burke as Nicholas, Hayley Atwell as Lily/Rose and Charles Dance as Conchis (shown above).
We asked Adrian Hodges to provide us with a few comments about his adaptation:
Published in 1965, The Magus was dramatized once before as a film in 1968.* Click the link below for more details on the radio adaptation, and future rebroadcast times.
