Episode 93 – A Discovery of Witches TV 2×04 – Fridge of Secrets

Alex Kingston as Sarah Bishop in A Discovery of Witches TV

Good morning and happy Sunday, Clovers!

We hope that you’re well, safe, and secure this morning — it’s frigid at C&C HQ-East and not likely to warm up for a few more weeks. We’re eagerly awaiting the equinox and the first of the snowdrops and crocus, just like everyone else.

In today’s episode, we’re diving in to Episode 2×04 of A Discovery of Witches TV — we’re talking about dating, plot structure, new adaptive material, character development, and whether Phoebe is just a little bit too chill about the blood fridge in Marcus’s kitchen. A special shout-out to Jen’s TV boyfriend, Domenico, and Gerbert being a creepy old coot.

A Ten-Day Countdown to the Premiere of A Discovery of Witches TV Season 2 – Day Eight – Characters!

Gallowglass

Happiest 2021, Clovers and friends!

As the calendar turns over to the new year, we’re one day closer to the premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV on Shudder, Sundance Now, and AMC+ on 9 January 2021! If you’re anything like us, one of the things we’re most looking forward to is the appearance of beloved original characters on-screen — Goody Alsop, Pierre, Francoise, and, of course, Gallowglass! We all have our own head canon about how these characters look and sound and walk and talk, but there’s a particular kind of art and magic in seeing talented artists bring a special character to the screen. Steven Cree, our Gallowglass, is no stranger to adapting book characters — you’ve likely seen him on STARZ’s screen adaptation of Outlander as Ian Murray. In a recent interview with Radio Times, Steven gave an interview about how Outlander prepared him for playing Gallowglass. According to the article, Steven knows how important Gallowglass is to the fandom and is looking forward to seeing how such a β€œsuch a cracking character” resonates with the TV audience. Based on the Instagram photo below, we think he resonates rather nicely.

We’ll celebrate the premiere of Season 2 with a live-tweet on Saturday, 9 January 2021, at 7pm EST. Use the hashtag #ccalchemy to join in the fun and keep your eyes peeled for our updated release and live tweet schedule.

In the meantime, follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers, to connect with us and other fans eagerly awaiting the return of our favorite series in just over a week!

Which original book character are you most excited to see on-screen?

A Ten-Day Countdown to the Premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches – Day Ten – History!

“The Armada Portrait” of Elizabeth I, located at Woburn Abbey, dated 1588.

Y’all. We’re only nine sleeps and a wake-up — or ten days — from the premiere of Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV on Shudder, Sundance Now, and AMC+ on 9 January 2021. To get properly excited, we thought we’d share our thoughts on what we’re most looking forward to about Season 2.

One of everyone’s favorite aspects of Shadow of Night, the source text for Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches TV, is how it whisks the reader into Tudor England — full of real people, real intrigue, and real events. From early production stills, trailers, and behind-the-scenes sneak peaks, we can certainly expect to encounter our favorite historical people and places from the books on-screen. For many of us, this is a wonderful opportunity to attend the court of Elizabeth I in the company of Matthew Roydon, her shadowy spy, and to peruse the extensive library of John Dee. Thanks to the incredible production team at Bad Wolf, we’re in for a phenomenal tour of Tudor England and Renaissance Europe–warrens, libraries, castles, countryside, and everything in between. If you haven’t already, take some time to watch this incredible “Behind the Magic” feature from New York Comic Con this fall and get in the mood for some A+ historical tourism.

If you can’t get enough, you should also check out the fabulous Biography Sundays in the All Souls Discussion Group on Facebook — there are book discussions, chapter questions, and lots of great details about characters (real and imagined!) from the All Souls Universe.

We’ll celebrate the premiere of Season 2 with a live-tweet on Saturday, 9 January 2021, at 7pm EST. Use the hashtag #ccalchemy to join in the fun and keep your eyes peeled for our updated release and live tweet schedule.

In the meantime, follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers, to connect with us and other fans eagerly awaiting the return of our favorite series in just. ten. days.

Tell us which historical figure you’re most excited to see in Season 2 in the comments!
