Why else would Childermass stay with Norrell? He's the only one who talks back to him, the only one who can contradict Norrell. He's got some magical skills, and yet Norrell keeps him on, when he wants to ban all other magicians. Plus, you get the sort of odd couple vibe...Norrell very fussy, Childermass a dirty rascal (him and Stephen Black are my favorite characters)...just sorta felt like that more was going on between the two of them.
It just felt too me like it could be construed that way, and it would keep with the timeframe the book is set in that it would not be mentioned explicitly by the author or by the characters. When I get the book back I'll have some particular pages to point out.
Not that any of it matters, it doesn't change the characters in any way, but it does lead to some thinking about the lives/universe of the characters.

NANCY TARTAGLIONE wrote:Ramping up its event drama output, BBC One has commissioned three new series for 2013. Period fantasy drama Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell is a six-part series based on the best-selling novel by Susanna Clarke and adapted by Wallander‘s Peter Harness. The book is an alternate history of England set during the Napoleonic Wars and focusing on a magician and his apprentice who use their powers to help the government but who are ultimately pitted against one another. New Line optioned the movie rights back in 2005 with Christopher Hampton adapting, but the film was never made. The series is produced by Cuba Pictures in association with Feel Film and Farmoor. Cuba recently produced Rufus Norris’ well-received festival title Broken. Toby Haynes, who directed the Season 2 Sherlock finale, The Reichenbach Fall, is helming. Nick Hirschkorn and Nick Marston are producers, Justin Thomson-Glover, Patrick Irwin and Matthew Read are exec producers.
