A Discovery Of Witches premieres

A contemporary love story set against the backdrop of Oxford academic life, but in a world where witches, vampires, and daemons live amongst the human race, hiding in plain sight.

It is the story of an exceptionally powerful witch, Diana Bishop, who tries not to use her magic and wants to focus on her academic career instead. But when she innocently asks for a book at Oxford’s Bodleian Library she doesn’t realize it’s bewitched, and soon finds herself face to face with all sorts of creatures, including a handsome vampire, Matthew Clairmont.

It’s an adaptation of the All Souls series of books by Deborah Harkness.
