Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Adapted from Deborah Harkness’s best selling All Souls Trilogy, A Discovery of Witches is a modern-day love story, set in a world where Witches, Vampires and Daemons secretly live and work alongside humans, hidden in plain sight.

The Sky original production stars Teresa Palmer as brilliant academic and historian Diana Bishop, a reluctant witch denying her magical heritage. Until the discovery of an ancient manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library throws her into the heart of a dangerous mystery, and into the path of enigmatic geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Good), who hides a dark family secret.

As Diana and Matthew embark on a journey to understand the secrets of the manuscript and their relationship develops, events threaten to unravel the fragile peace between witches, vampires, daemons and human, a peace overseen by the Congregation, a shadowy institution made up of a handful of powerful vampire, witch and daemon representatives.

Alex Kinston plays Diana’s aunt, Sarah Bishop, a practising witch and coven member. Owen Teale is Peter Knox, a powerful witch and leading member of the Congregation. And Louuise Brealey plays Gillian Chamberlain, a witch and one of Diana’s fellow professors at Oxford University.

Made by Bad Wolf Productions, A Discovery of Witches has been adapted for screen by writer Kate Brooke, co-founder of Bad Wolf Jane Tranter and Lachlan Mackinnon are executive producers, and Juan Carlos Medina is the director. Filming took place in South Wales and on location in Oxford and Venice.
