Description

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.

  • Good, but veering from the books

    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.
  • Bait and Swtch DO NOT PURCHASE THIS

    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...
  • Mathew Goode is perfect!

  • Not Exactly What I Imagined

    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.
  • Love the TV 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!
