What I’m Loving Right Now: A Discovery of Witches
A Discovery of Witches was an easy sell for me. All they needed to say was that Matthew Goode, a Downton Abbey favourite, stars as an enigmatic vampire, who teams up with a witch (played by Aussie Teresa Palmer) to solve some ancient mysteries and kick some serious butt along the way.
This show, based on the All Souls trilogy, written by Deborah Harkness, has everything. Deamons, forbidden love and time travel!
The only thing I’m annoyed about is that I turned up late to this party. Somehow I didn’t know of its existence until the second season was released in Australia (Foxtel and Binge) recently.
The bonus of course was that I was able to binge watch the whole two seasons – and you can bet that’s exactly what I did.
Our hero witch, Diana Bishop, is a historian who discovers a bewitched manuscript in the Bodleian library in Oxford.
She is the only one who can access the book, which is coveted by all magical creatures for different reasons. Diana and Matthew must protect the book while at the same time solve the riddles it contains.
In season two, their quest takes them to Elizabethan England…historical figures…amazing costumes – I told you this show is awesome!
If all things magical and historical with the occasional swoon moment are your bag, then settle yourself in for A Discovery of Witches…you can thank me later.
