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.
