Viewers have been loving the sneak peeks, with one writing: "Theo and Rose are killing it. This will be the adaptation the book deserves, Audrey Niffenegger is a consultant on this," while another added: "I'm really excited to see Rose and Theo take on the roles of Claire and Henry, since I'm used to seeing them as Ygritte and Four, respectively. Their American accents are so on point."

A third person added: "This looks so good, can't wait to see Theo and Rose together. Theo has been under the radar for too long!" 

The series has been adapted by Sherlock’s co-creator Steven Moffat, who opened up about the show to Deadline, saying: "What is thrilling of the interaction of time travel and a love story here, is it makes the most common phenomenon of a completely happy marriage, interesting again.

"Love stories, or love movies, tend to end at the altar. We never do the bit where people are perfectly happy for decades because it seems like a dramatic thing. By scrambling it all up and constantly reminding you that love is inextricably linked to loss, which is a cheery thought, you make this very common phenomenon of a happy marriage, thrilling and full of attention and tragedy."
