Attending a book event with Professor Harkness is awe inspiring. Attending with friends is something you treasure forever. On July 1st, we went to Third Place Books in Seattle (Lake Forest Park), which was the last stop of the Time’s Convert Book Tour. The whole experience was greatly enhanced by the presence of Valerie from Daemons Discuss, Dana, one of the All Souls Con attendees in Cardiff, plus the lovely Wendy and Stephanie, and the amazing Jill. Deborah’s fabulous talk on the journey of the non-linear creative process was livestreamed from her author page on Facebook and we did our best to capture the lively Q&A that came after the live stream. We hope you enjoy it.Continue reading
Celebrate with us episode 7 and the magic of the Bishop House by entering our new giveaway!
The Bishop House is one of our favorite characters. It’s very opinionated and caring at the same time. It saves precious letters, illustrated manuscripts, and many other objects. And in the TV adaptation, it even knows how to perform counter-clock spells!Continue reading
Wales is an absolutely magical country and extremely versatile from a TV production point of view. In A Discovery Of Witches, Wales plays Oxfordshire, Scotland, the Auvergne, Madison County in upstate New York, and even Finland! Rest assured that we have not reshuffled the tectonic plates or flanked a geography class. Apparently, impossible n’est pas Wales! And Bad Wolf simply hired one of the most talented and knowledgeable location managers to find and supervise the best locations in the UK, Gareth Skelding—“Gaz” to friends and colleagues.
Gaz was very generous sharing the locations where A Discovery Of Witches was filmed, so we can all visit and enjoy a ‘TV production full immersion experience.’ And every time you see one of the locations described in this quick guide, remember that you have a Wales expert taking you there. How lucky is that?!Continue reading
We’ve started the countdown to a very important day: All Souls’ Day and Matthew’s birthday … and it’s not all. It’s also the last day of Deborah’s book tour in the UK and Ireland, which will conclude in London, as well as the airing of the last episode of the first season of A Discovery Of Witches in the UK. Since Matthew’s birthday falls on All Souls’ Day, we have a Matthew-themed prize pack in partnership with All Souls Con. Hint: wine and DNA might be involved. Enter every day for a chance to win! The contest ends on All Souls’ Day.
In the summer of 2015, we posted the #AllSoulsWatch Survival Guide—It feels like a lifetime ago! We figured we should update it for all the fans that are waiting for A Discovery Of Witches to air in their country (us included). You’re not alone. As a reminder, if you’re in North America, A Discovery Of Witches is expected to air in early 2019 on Sundance Now and Shudder, with all the episodes available at once (binge-mode). The show will also air weekly episodes on the Sundance channel.

Happy #Witchmas everyone!
We’re thrilled to bring you an abridged version of the Q&A with the brilliant panel of executive producers, Jane Tranter, Kate Brooke, and Deborah Harkness, with Teresa Palmer and Matthew Goode, at the Cardiff premiere of A Discovery Of Witches. The panel was moderated by Welsh television presenter Angharad Mair.
We were very fortunate to be invited to a press roundtable at San Diego Comic Con and got to chat with the effervescent cast and producers of A Discovery Of Witches. But before we meet the witches (and producers), here’s a summary of what was announced at San Diego Comic Con on Thursday, July 19th:
• A Discovery Of Witches will premier on September 14 on Sky One in the UK.
• In the US, it will be available on streaming platforms, Sundance Now and Shudder. Later on Instagram, Sundance Now wrote that the series would air in early 2019.
The producers and cast were the same that had previously spoken during the panel in Hall 20: Deborah Harkness, Lachlan MacKinnon, Teresa Palmer, Alex Kingston, Valarie Pettiford, and Owen Teale.
