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.

A Discovery of Witches, Season 1 Reviews
Will there be more seasons?. I adore the show.
Need more! Well done and had me totally hooked.
This show is fantastic. I paid for the season wish it was available to watch
Love it 😍 great and interesting new yet traditional twist on the supernatural. Counting down the days until the next season and will definitely be purchasing the books❣️will be interesting to compare tv series to book series. The only thing I didn’t like was how Diana treats her aunt most of the time.
So close to the book.
I read the books and this is amazing. Mathew Goode and Teresa Palmer bring their characters to life. Fantastic job.
I need season 2 ASAP!! Maybe I’ll read the book. I’m glad ADOW exists! Im desperate for new shows now that all my A-list shows are ending. What will happen next with Matthew & Diana?! I expected him to be left behind. They were setting that up, in a traditional drama it’d happen. I was spoiled by ADOW’s official twitter...another viewer/book reader mentioned they’re both in the 14 or 1500s. I NEED TO KNOW. I WANNA READ BUT I LOVE NOT KNOWING!
A must watch. Extremely well done.
Follows the books mostly with some creative changes. I agree though that whole series should be released at once as I bought the whole series upfront. Well done to the cast and crew. Deborah Harkness should be proud.
Good show but why aren’t the other episodes available yet? I agree with the other reviews.
I am so thrilled to finally have the opportunity to watch this show! The storyline is incredible, and the actors are the best. Please add more od the episodes:)
The colour palettes for this show is amazing. Everything is filmed beautifully. The actors are great, and I’m so excited to watch the rest of the season
The show seems great but I'd just like to know why the episodes are not available yet in Canada while the season is over since january 2019 and available in the us store
One of my favourite shows!! Matthew Goode makes a great vampire! Can’t wait for seasons 2 and 3
Really did a great job at adapting book into the show. It’s fast paced and packed with details. Small budget show that looks like a big budget, really is quality work. Great casts too. As we all know its not 100% from book but the tv show has kept most important parts of the book and move the story along really well. Love it!! I hope 2nd and 3rd seasons are as good if not better, surly they have more budget to work with now that the show is doing well.
Just another cliched entry into an overused and overly popular genre. Vampire fantasy romance.
If only the tv show had more seasons and episodes. Can’t wait for season 2. Jan 9, 2021.
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT EPISODE AND SECOND SEASON! I truly enjoyed being captivated by this fantastical plot and its characters. This is 100% LEGIT interest, honesty and truth being told. And I don’t care who knows it! The AMAZINGLY- talented (and of course breathtakingly beautiful!!!!) actors truly capture the characters of this trilogy. The extremely well-played and well-cast actors /characters of the series/trilogy, gripping storyline, well-executed cinematography, and beautiful scenery makes it sooooooo easy to fall in love with the series from the get-go! I am 100% hooked!!!!... And that’s coming from a person who would rather do anything else but watch a fictional scifi film. Check it out, you won’t regret it!
I was hooked from the first episode this is the most outstanding show I have ever watched I cannot wait for season two the books are just as incredible!
This is beautifully written and produced, it’s not cheesy like some other vampire and witch productions out there. It’s interesting and has a real story and only gets better by each episode. I could watch it again and again.
We are all impatient for the next season…. though I can understand the reason why is the Heroine keeps getting pregnant. We understand & will wait as long as necessary.
It’s a really great storyline with some great twists and interesting characters. So many of the scenes were amazingly shot.
I was able to catch this and holy mackerel I’m hooked. The show spurned me to read the books which I found followed really nicely. I have re-watched the show between getting the books. I am about to re-read the books too. Ms. Harkness can’t write book 5 fast enough me. I’m so glad I came across this show. The cast is really great!
So so annoyed!
I have read these books dozens of times. A true favorite. This adaptation is truly amazing, the actors catch the characters perfectly. Can not wait to see the next seasons.
The book series is fantastic. It is rich in detail, and makes you feel you are part of the characters lives. There is no way a TV series could convey that level of detail. But that is not to say the sereis is bad. It was actually very well done. I have watched it several times now on Sundanceand and have really enjoyed it. I am also planning on buying the digital version. Do I wish it could be exactly like the book? Yes of course, but I love seeing the characters brought to life on the TV screen as well. Try it without expectations and I am sure you will enjoy it and love it as much as I do.
I absolutely love this show. The tale of forbidden love, the scenery, the story line -- absolutely everything! Can't wait for Season 2
I prepared myself for the worst since there’s only 8 episodes to cover an entire book...but I was pleasantly surprised! I loved it and can’t wait until seasons 2 & 3. (And I would love more books too!)
I fell in love with this Trilogy many years ago and have read the books countless times! I was so excited when the TV series came out! I have to say that like most series and movies based on a book, there are always going to be some cinematic and artistic differences, it’s only natural. However, the excitement, the beauty, the mystery, intrigue, drama and adventure are still there and I eagerly await season 2!!!! It’s a must watch!
Love this show
Absolutely loved it- you definitely need to watch each episode in its entirety to understand the next one. Teresa Palmer is amazing!
This has to be one of the better shows created in the last 5 years.
Honestly the books are so good I knew the series would not come near my expectations. That being said, they could have honestly tried a bit harder... The final episode of the series is the one that leaves the most to be desired and it's the most important one!! The acting is terrible, the story is shortened to the point where it is hard to understand and confusing despite having read the books. No care was taken into actually developing the plot.. If they didnt have enough time or episodes to develop the whole story then end somewhere else. It seemed as though they rusehd to finish the last episode. I dont think I will be watching season 2
Just got this the other day it’s really good so far the story is good the acting is better than I thought it would be all in all very good can’t wait till the next one comes out.
Would love to have had this on HBO and to have had more insight into the historical references, which are fascinating. Keeping closer to the book is always the best bet, yet have still been waiting for Sunday to come with the next installment. This is a keeper for me and I am very picky. The actors are good. The editing is not the best. 40 minutes is not enough to tell this story each week. Again, HBO or Starz should be calling. Loved the books with all the Harkness detail. She knows what she is doing, I only hope AMC allows her more control and extends your season beyond 8 episodes to tell the story.
This is not your typical vampire, witches & demon show. The acting is really good in my opinion. I found this show on a whim & am happy I did ♥️
I love this book trilogy and recommend it to all who might be interested in this subject matter. The show could have been much, much better given how detailed and colorful the books are. Still, it is interesting to see it put to film. Still worth the price. By the way, Amazon also only releases the episodes one at a time!
While I am enjoying this much anticipated tv series from one of my favorite trilogies, I’m not thrilled with some major changes from the book. (Spoiler alert), the process of Diana finding out what kind of witch she is was the best part of this series and to have Satu (a minor character) be named a weaver in episode 6....not good. I was actually ok with Ysabeau’s casting (I mean Lindsay Duncan ok) and that Baldwin was way more supportive etc... But don’t rush the pace and change some of the most important narrative arcs!!
Like many other reviewers, this series is so boring when compared to the actual novels This is such a huge disappointment, it could've been so much better. Somehow, the managed to convince Matthew Goode to play the reluctant vampire and some of the scenic landscapes are great.
The show is fun to watch. BUT, the economic model is akin to going to a carnival and throwing balls in a basket, wondering why the balls go in to the basket for the carnival worker but always fall out for you. UNLIKE OTHER ITUNES SHOWS YOU CANNOT BUY THE ENTIRE SEASON! They get you started and invested in the show by having you to unknowningly buy half a season, then they try to sucker you into purchasing a subscription. THIS IS A BAIT AND SWITCH! It is pathetic and apparently typical of the new Cooked Apple. I'll not watch shows with this model and in the future will be very careful of buying anything from Apple! Tim Cook you are wreaking apple... with a small a...
I ve read the books and yes the show is not the same ...however Mathew Goode is so good in this role He takes your breath away ...the rest of the cast for me is not close to him .I will be curious how the second season is ...for a whlle one can forgive the "poetic License " taken have fun ... .
Some depth of plot and enjoyable acting. Watch it.
I read and loved the All Souls Trilogy, I also bought the audio books which made the characters come even more alive. Having said that, I was deeply disappointed in some of the characters in the series. Marcus is supposed to be a surfer dude with blonde hair, jeans, tee shirts and sneakers. Ysabeau is a beautiful small French vampire with flawless skin that looks too young to be Matthew’s mother, instead we get Lindsay Duncan who was wonderful in Under the Tuscan Sun, but not so much here. I wish you had thought seriously about your readers and what they might think and feel about the the wonderful characters that are loved by us all. The trilogy is amazing, read them! And like so many Trilogy fans who will watch this series and have to erase from their minds the wonderful characters they read about. 4 in and 4 to go!
Yes the book has more details. Do I miss some of the details, yes. The TV adaptation actually removes some things I didn't like in the book, and yes has some choices that I didn't think fit the books. I get a great quick read of the books in this show. It is visually wonderful. I came to it because of Matthew Goode, but really love the whole show.
Great videography and the acting is building. The Nox & weak witch characters are annoying but pilots are usually slow. I would have to say that this was better then most pilots. Definitely a fan!
Can’t wait for the season 2!!!! Please don’t make us wait that long!!!
Finally a new interesting TV show that isn’t predictable. Im obsessed
Not entirely true to the book but entertaining nonetheless
I really loved this show. I watch the whole first season on shudder. I didn’t really expect to like it as much as I did but the show really surprised me. Great show can’t wait for the next season.
A paranormal romance noval come to life. With a very hot leading man. Finally something really steamy for adults in the paranormal tv world.
I was recommended this series actually through Facebook. Took me awhile to actually commit to trying it out.... BEST DECISION EVER! Wow the caliber of acting is stellar! The most binge worthy series I have started in a long time!! Take a shot you won’t be disappointed! I don’t usually post reviews but saw a few negative ones and couldn’t let that stand when I knew what a treasure I found! The books are amazing as well! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW! I tell everyone about it!! Now the worst thing about this series is that Season two hasn’t been filmed yet.... Off to read the books!!!
It is rare when there is an adult magic/ fantasy series that is grounded in reality with adult conversation that is not comical or campy. The actors are top notch and you will enjoy watching.
After spending hours and I mean hours reading the trilogy, I couldnt wait for the TV show. I waited for over a year for this. The books were excellent! This show left a lot to be desired. I was very ecstatic to see Matthew Goode playing the role of Matthew De Clarmont and I thought he did a brilliant job. Teresa Palmer on the other hand was horrible. Her acting was mono-tone and unenthusiastic. She actually bored me thru the eight episodes. For me she was very hard to watch! What happened to Marcus? Wasn’t he a blond haired surfer dud in the books??? The actors playing the other parts were great though but I just couldnt get into this fantastic love between witch and vampire. I really hope Teresa improves in the second series because to me she was a real disappointment. To understand the greatness of this trilogy, read the books first to see what youre really missing. Yes, they used lines from the book but the story they created for TV doesn't compare...
Such good writing. I’m reading the series now and can’t wait to see it play out. 💕
I haven’t read the books, but after I saw the first episode, I know this show is going to be amazing..!!
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the novel, I came to this series with high expectations. I am sorely disappointed. Very superficial. I understand the difficulty in adapting the character and plot development of a nearly 600 page novel into eight 44 minute episodes, but it appears as though high level sketches of character and plot were literally thrown together. The acting in parts was terrible. I bought the series in the US store, so only one episode has been released. Maybe future episodes will be better. If you haven’t read the book, I assure you it’s infinitely better than this series.
Surprised by Kitten
As of the writing of this review, i have seen the preview and the first episode, and I can't hardly contain myself. If the rest of the show had been available, i would have spent my whole day watching and rewatching. As it was, i watched the first episode again because i just couldn't get enough. What happens next?!?
After all the vampire shows or witch shows that I have seen, this feels very real and rustic. It does have its cliched moments but still worth a watch.
I’ve read/listened to the All Souls Trilogy multiple times and while of course some things are different it is still fantastic and sticks to the important things. Defiantly worth a watch.
Great show, cant wait until season 2!
ROBBYS I PAD 2
Amazing Show, Great Writing,Acting, Suspenseful with top notch production Values. A must see.
This show is pretty rad! It’s story line and depth is unique and sheds light on a different kind of vampire/witch/demon world!! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who loved a great adventure and romance!
If you have not read the trilogy you need to. Its also available on Audible and is the best read series I have ever heard. If the video is half as good as the books it will be fantastic.
Love it. The story of love and magic bring two people together is must watch!!
I recently got the first book and I thought it was extremely awesome I found a show on an app the first season and it was epic! Can’t wait for season 2!!!
I watched the series in the UK and I was very skeptical. The books are great and I was not so sure how the TV version would be. The result is extremely good, and I enjoyed every single minute.
Watched season one in the U.k. Waiting for season 2 it’s finally in the states
The show is simply fantastic. The acting is superb. I got lucky and watched it last year from sky blue a British stream. It’s so refreshing to see a show not hindered by American nonsense. You are all in for a treat.
