Daemons Discuss - Podcast: Special Edition! | Our Reaction to the Casting of Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop

Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer are our Matthew and Diana for A Discovery of Witches TV
Special Edition - The One With Our Witch and Vampire

Description: Recorded the morning of the announcement (August 22nd, 2017), and we are reacting to the news of who will play Matthew Clairmont, and Diana Bishop! Excuse the audio in spots -- this was produced on the fly! We are pleased the 5 years of waiting and watching are over! ON WITH THE SHOW! 😆

SPOILER ALERT! We (The Daemons) approach this podcast with an assumption that the listener has read The All Souls Trilogy, including A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life.  If you haven't, and you don't mind, we certainly don't mind!  😊  Let's do this.

1. Show notes:

For newcomers to the series:- We'll start with the basics: The books in discussion are A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night and The Book of Life.  Together they make The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness.
- Our Daemon Guides to the All Souls Trilogy are available for download: ADOW, SON, TBOL

Deb's newsletter - The Blast; subscribe on her website
- If you'd like a ready-reference from the author herself, be sure to download the All Souls Real-Time Reading companion (free e-book at online booksellers via Penguin and Headline books).
- Deborah Harkness usually conducts a real-time reading on her Facebook Page (starting in September), and shares her posts across social media. Check out her website for all of her social media links, and of course all that she has to offer her readers! Be sure to sign up for her newsletter while you are there!

We don't know how we can do better than Deb, so here is the scoop from her Facebook Page (her video lives on this post as well):

News Wrap Up: Lead Cast, UK broadcaster, Writer, Director Announcement for A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES TV Adaptation

If you've been following me today on any of my social channels you've probably been bombarded with information today. I've tried to assemble the high points together into a single post here for those who want to be sure they have all the news.

First up: our Diana and Matthew have been cast! I'm over the moon that Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge, Berlin Syndrome) and Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey, The Imitation Game) are the lead actors in the A Discovery of Witches series.

UK and Ireland viewers will be able to watch it sometime next year as a Sky Original production made by Bad Wolf TV on Sky 1 and Now TV. Other broadcasters around the globe will be announced in the weeks ahead. WE WILL TELL YOU WHEN WE CAN. WE PROMISE.

Our head writer and showrunner is Kate Brooke (Mr. Selfridge, The Forsyte Saga). I will be introducing you to her more fully on Monday, 28 August, here on Facebook and across my social channels.

Our director for the first episodes is Juan Carlos Medina (The Limehouse Golem, Painless)

* Our episode titles are a loving tribute to the show "Friends" just 'cause we love Friends and - let's face it - it's easier! Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:
Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
This was a Daemon Production
