A Discovery of Witches

Season 1, Episode 1:

Series opener.

Adapted from the book series of the same name by Deborah Harkness and co-produced by Bad Wolf Productions.

Not a bad beginning to this series in which we are presented to a world of witches and vampires as we meet witch Diana Bishop and vampire Matthew Clairmont and things start with a book that has been searched for.

Season 1, Episode 2:

Daunting when Diana met Peter Know and certainly upsetting for her when she discovered (no pun intended) a betrayal.

Feels much better than the first episode.

Season 1, Episode 3:
Series directorial by Alice Troughton.
This is an episode with Alex Kingston as Diana’s aunt Sarah and Troughton narrowly missed directing Kingston in Doctor Who in the 2008 season.
In the 2008 season of Doctor Who, Troughton directed The Doctor’s Daughter & Midnight and Kingston’s debut as River Song, Silence In The Library/Forest of the Dead were two of three episodes that came in between the said Troughton episodes with it coming straight before Midnight.
Interesting little history that Matthew provides of himself to Diana.
Quite tense encounter between Diana and Knox at the library.

Season 2, Episode 1:
Season 2 opener.
Intriguing that this season starts off with Diana and Matthew in London on All Hallows’ Eve, 1590.
Also intriguing on how Kit Marlowe comes into this as well as Diana seeing an ancestor of hers.

Season 2, Episode 2:
Not bad what ensures when Diana meets Goody Alsop.
Intriguing with Hubbard sending a message to Phillipe.

Season 2, Episode 3:
Quite a meeting that Matthew and Diana had with Queen Elizabeth I.
Harrowing what the search for the Book of Life entails.

Season 2, Episode 4:
Series writing debut by Pete McTighe.
Marcus didn’t across well to me the moment he mentioned a certain number and a certain author.
It was however fascinating the revelation about the blood rage.

Season 2, Episode 5:
Sure a tense reunion between Matthew and his stepfather Phillipe.
This then leads to an unfortunate argument between Matthew and Diana due to what Phillipe had said.
Harrowing the attack that was made to Diana at the end and what she had to do to defend herself.

Season 2, Episode 6:
Matthew sure kept his determination in not telling his father Phillipe how the latter is going to die.
Moving when Ysabeau discovered (no pun intended) Phillipe’s letter to her.

Season 2, Episode 7:
Matthew and Diana finally gets the Book of Life but surprisingly when they do get it, it is exactly what it says in its name.
