Update 18 February, 2017: We've gathered some of the contestant's favorite Diana/Matthew courtship scenes in A Discovery of Witches:

πŸ’˜  Matthew and Diana's first breakfast together

πŸ’˜  Sept-Tours stairs to MC's rooms. He takes DB's face in his hands and asks, "What spell have you put on me?"

πŸ’˜  When Diana and Matthew had dinner in his rooms at All Souls and he held her for so long her legs fell asleep.

πŸ’˜  When he tells her about his past. About the church.

πŸ’˜  My favorite was when Diana was making dinner for Matthew.

πŸ’˜  Probably when he went into her apt for the 1st time. So many emotions running through both.

πŸ’˜  Dinner at Matthew's - Diana's birthday wine.

πŸ’˜  So hard to chose!! Dinner date at her quarters? She was so cute! All her research to prepare.  Or the scene of shooting stars at the farm house!

πŸ’˜  Right at the very beginning..When they first meet in the library. Oh my beating heart be still. Love the potential in that scene

πŸ’˜  When in the library , Diana uses magic to reach for a book and Matthew calls her out in it,  but Diana responds that she is a scientist and doesn't approve of magic. 

πŸ’˜  Matthew in territorial and protective mode when she's inspecting the manuscript at The Bodleian.

πŸ’˜  A difficult question! I have many favourite scenes but certainly, the pinnacle for me is in A Discovery of Witches; in which Diana has invited Matthew over for dinner. This scene has such chemistry and although they had spent time previously, I feel like they began to truly connect on an equal footing in this.

πŸ’˜  When Diana first realised the significance of Matthew's interest. The OMG! We're kinda married! scene.

πŸ’˜  All parts in the Bodleian Library!!!

πŸ’˜  Matthew preparing dinner for Diana.

πŸ’˜  Shadow of Night - howling at the moon or kissing
Update 24 February 2017 - Emrys was so very kind to share a great 4-part video on Instagram detailing how much Deb's work has meant to her!

And, from her email:

"...I took a few photos of the prizes - and in theme, I decided to do so at the Great Hall in Winchester. The Great Hall has historical ties with Edward I and although the Knights of Lazarus were not English, I thought the 'crusading' link may work as a distant tie-in.

Wishing you all the best!


And here are the photos:

Thank you, Emrys!
