Description

    Adapted from Deborah Harkness' best-selling trilogy of novels, A Discovery of Witches is a bold and romantic thriller that uncovers a secret underworld of extraordinary beings hiding in plain sight for fear of persecution by humans - they are vampires, witches and daemons. Brilliant historian Diana Bishop is a witch denying her own heritage. But when she unexpectedly calls up an ancient, bewitched manuscript from Oxford's Bodleian library, one that was thought by the creatures to be lost and could answer the mysteries of their existence, she finds herself thrown into the heart of a dangerous mystery - and into the path of the enigmatic geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont. Matthew is driven to solve the looming threat of the creatures' decline and extinction, but their unlikely alliance to find the book before it falls into the wrong hands and their deepening relationship - threatens to violate age-old taboos and shake the fragile peace that exists between the species.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not at all like the book Every year I read the All Souls trilogy, I absolutely adore it, and was overjoyed when I heard that they were making a series ... but when I watched it, I was utterly disappointed. The only thing I liked about the series was that the acting was great. The story line was wrong in many places and scenes were added that will make number two and three hard to comprehend. Even the ending was wrong. Such a shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful TV show, DVD lacks features "A Discovery of Witches" is a fascinating TV show. It has a wonderful story and well developed characters. It stays true to the world of the books but presents the events from a unique perspective. The DVD lacked the features most other TV show DVDs have. There were no subtitles for the hard of hearing and no special features. The sound quality and picture clarity were good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly addictive I came across this show by accident but got so caught up in it I had to buy the series (DVD) - it's only the first, now waiting for the second series. I was concerned this was going to be just another witch/vampire teen drama repeat; but it surprised me. First, it involves adult characters (a different field of drama), and I liked the new spin on the tale of supernatural characters. I found the story intriguing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adaptation I read the books before watching the series and wasn’t disappointed. The acting was great and the landscape shots are beautiful. Would definitely recommend for those that like the romance genre.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Storyline missing depth. I read online reviews that said the show was amazing. I wish I had purchased the books and read them. Parts of the storyline need more in-depth detail than is shown in the DVD. Costumes and sets are great though! Storyline mimicked, in part, other stories of similar genre. If you like to read, buy the books!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Re: Discovery of Witches I have not read the books, they may have given a different interruption of the DVD series. Quite well done, story line becomes more interesting as you go along. I liked the series well enough to want to see more of it. Disappointing that there were so few episodes on the dics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Discovery of Witches If you loved Vampire Diaries, The Originals or any Witches, Vampire, Demon shows, then you will love this. Each episode makes you want to know more, each one has a twist, can't wait for Season 2.
