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
In addition to A Discovery Of Witches, Wales has been the backdrop for Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, and many more TV and movie hits. Gareth Skelding—a.k.a. Gaz—is the location manager for A Discovery Of Witches, and is known for his work on Sherlock, Da Vinci’s Demons, Torchwood and Dr. Who. After you read what Gaz has to say about Wales, you will want to pack your bags and visit this enchanting land. Whether you call it “location scouting” (American English) or “recce” (British English), as a location manager, Gaz is a Wales expert and treasure hunter, and Wales could not ask a better advocate.Continue reading
With a knot of four, the
power tradition is stored.
Our All Souls Holiday Shopping Guide is at its Fourth Edition!
Honoring tradition, every year, we research fun and beautiful All Souls-inspired gift ideas. This year, we have quite a comprehensive list of gifts under $30—with presents for history buffs, science lovers, and yes, daemon lovers! And some of these items benefit the Bodleian Libraries!
P.S. We’ve included the audiobooks for the fourth year in a row, hoping that fans of the TV adaptation will pick them up. They are truly phenomenal.
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.
