A Discovery of Witches is a British supernatural drama television series that premiered on Sky 1 in 2018. The show is based on the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness and has a star-studded cast featuring Matthew Goode, Teresa Palmer and Alex Kingston. The series follows Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer), a historian and a witch who has been denying her true abilities for most of her life. While researching at Oxford's Bodleian Library, she discovers a mysterious manuscript which has intrigued historical scholars and is sought after by witches, vampires and daemons alike. Diana's discovery sets a chain of events in motion, as she gets caught in the world of supernatural creatures and caught up in a centuries-long feud between witches and their supernatural counterparts.

Matthew Goode plays the role of Matthew Clairmont, a centuries-old vampire who becomes Diana's love interest. As they try to uncover the secrets hidden within the manuscript, they must also navigate the dangerous subculture of creatures who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the book.

Joining Diana and Matthew in their quest are various other characters, including the powerful matriarch of the Bishop family, Sarah (Alex Kingston), the witch-twin of Diana, Em (Valerie Pettiford), and Matthew's brother, Marcus (Edward Bluemel), a fellow vampire who is hesitant to trust his sibling's love interest.

The show is not afraid to explore the complexities of the supernatural creatures and their relationships with each other, often delving into topics such as prejudice and discrimination. It also addresses themes of love, loss and self-discovery, making it not just an action-packed supernatural thriller but also a heartwarming romantic drama.

The series is set against the backdrop of some of the most stunning landscapes of England, from the historic streets of Oxford University to the picturesque countryside of Scotland. The stunning visuals combined with the mystique of the supernatural world create an immersive viewing experience.

A Discovery of Witches has been praised for its strong performances, beautiful cinematography and gripping storyline. The show has garnered a loyal fan base and has been well-received by critics, who have noted its similarities to other successful fantasy dramas such as True Blood, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Vampire Diaries.

With three seasons in total, the show ended its run on Sky 1 in 2022, having earned a spot as a popular and culturally significant piece of television. For fans looking for an engrossing and multi-faceted fantasy series, A Discovery of Witches is definitely worth a watch.

A Discovery of Witches is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (30 episodes). The series first aired on September 14, 2018.
