    “I just killed a man! This isn’t the moment to discuss our marriage.”

    “Nonsense. Marrying amid bloodshed is a de Clermont family tradition,” Philippe said briskly. “We only seem to mate creatures who are desired by others. It is a messy business.”

    “I. Killed. Him.” Just to be sure my message was clear, I pointed to the body on the floor.” - Deborah Harkness, Shadow of Night

  • Still in the morning, Diana meets Henry Percy, the Earl of Northumberland, who is beyond happy and excited by Matthew having married. Soon after Sir Walter Raleigh—irritated by the queen’s treatment of him—arrives as well, although he proves to be way more wary of Diana than Henry. All of them moving to the parlor, Matthew tells his friends the truth: that his wife is a witch from the future who uncovered a mythical book and now is in need of their help. Kit keeps making jealous, slighted quips, but Raleigh keeps silencing him with pointed remarks. In the end Raleigh—Matthew’s equal in temper and authority—is won over, which means that now the whole group is ready to do whatever it takes to help Diana. An agreement is reached that she’ll need clothes, a woman to teach her how behave in a way to blend in, and a witch, to teach her magic.

    Notes

    • Okay, technically speaking, Diana using “stays” and “corsets” interchangeably is incorrect. They’re not the same, nor do they serve *exactly* the same purpose. Here’s some background info on that. However, Diana might get a pass for simply being out of time and not being an expert on fashion history.
    • Also, here’s a video on how Elizabethan clothes actually looked like. This is a bit out of date–the video depicts fashion from 1570-1580–, but at this point Diana is wearing Louisa’s old clothes, so technically, it could be accurate.
    • I’d die for Hal. He’s literally friend-shaped.
    • I love how Walter is wary of Diana—and of Matthew because of her—, but at the same time he also keeps reminding Kit about his place. He truly is Matthew’s equal in standing and authority.
    • Diana notes that she is wearing the clothes that Lousia wore for Jane Seymour’s funeral (albeit with Pierre’s jacket). Either she is exaggerating, or her current clothes are about fifty years out of fashion.
    • Matthew says that he is going to show Diana HER house. Which is technically true, since he signed it over to her in the 21st century. BTW, I would have loved to see if and when Amira was informed about the change of ownership.

    Favorite quote:

    (After Raleigh implied that Diana must be Henry’s lover)

    “The Earl of Northumberland rested his toasting fork on the hearth and considered his friend. He shook his head and returned to his work. ‘Go out, come in again, and ask Matt for his news. And look contrite when you do it.’”

    I’m watching ADOW again cause why not? This episode (s01e04) is so beautiful. I love to see Matthew so content, dancing with his mom and Diana. Matthew Good and Teresa Palmer are fantastic, we can’t deny the chemistry between them. The perfect cast!

  • According to Wales Online, A Discovery of Witches ‘Filming is apparently due to take place today. One Twitter user who spotted the building said: “It’s definitely New Orleans. I saw something from an extra. They were told to dress for 22° New Orleans”’

    A colonial-style house has been built in front of Cardiff University’s Main Building

    A Discovery of Witches is a Sky TV series based on the books by Deborah Harkness. There has already been one series of the show aired on TV, while the second series is due to hit UK screens in January. [Jan 8 UK, Jan 9 US+Canada, Jan 13 Australia]

    A Discovery of Witches features The Crown star Matthew Goode and Australian actress Teresa Palmer who was in Oscar-nominated movie Hacksaw Ridge and thriller Lights Out.

    Previous series have also been shot in Wales, including stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons and at Wolf Studios in Cardiff and Pinewood Studios Wales.

  • I promised you a chapter-by-chapter read along in preparation to s2, so here it is :)

    Matthew and Diana safely arrive at the Old Lodge in 1590. Right after their arrival, they meet the daemon Christopher Marlowe—who takes an instant dislike to Diana for being a witch and mainly for being loved by Matthew—, and two de Clermont servants, Pierre and Francoise. Going downstairs, Diana also meets the writer George Chapman, one of Matthew’s friends. The next morning, Kit barges into Diana and Matthew’s room with another daemon, the scatter-brained but well-meaning Thomas Harriot. Kit is hell-bent on figuring out who Diana is and what makes her so strange, but Matthew foils his attempts by sending everyone but the servants out of the room. Diana figures out that basically the whole School of Night is waiting downstairs, which makes her lash out at Matthew for not telling her about his friends all being super important historical figures before they left Madison. While dressing her, Francoise notices Diana’s scars, which shocks her and Pierre. Matthew tells them the truth about Diana, although he leaves out that he, too, is from the future—although the two servants most likely suspect it. Diana is trying to calm everyone down, downplaying the previous events, because she doesn’t want to start a feud between vampires. Francoise assures her that there’s nothing to be done: by hurting her Satu and her accomplices offended the de Clermonts, so retribution is needed. Dressed up and ready for the day, Matthew and Diana go downstairs to meet the Earl of Northumberland.

    Notes

    • One of the things I miss from the series is… how to describe it? The casual bodily presence of Matthew. What we see in the show is measured, polite, dignified distance; the ferocious predator; and the lover. But in the books, pretty often there is this casual, undignified, almost goofy way he handles himself, which makes him more approachable, more human. Even on the very first page of this book, he lies on his back on the floor, letting his head fall back “with a gentle thunk,” simply because he is relieved.
    • When she is describing the past, Deborah Harkness sometimes feels like a kid in a candy store. She did not have to comment on the Tudor roses on the ceiling, but she did, because she just couldn’t help herself.
    • Enter Kit Marlowe. Funny thing is, I’ve never read any of his stuff or seen it performed, but I’ve seen about half a dozen fictional versions of him. The ones in Bill and Upstart Crow might my favorites. And this one is the least sympathetic. The first time we see him, he’s being noisy, snooping around in Matthew’s personal stuff—I wonder what he was looking for? Then half a page later he insults Diana. Not a great start.
    • Diana is being fitted into her first Elizabethan dress. Okay, guys, I have a massive academic crush on historical costuming. I’m freakishly looking forward to the costumes in the show.
    • I really wonder how Ysabeau’s earring ended up in a chest in Matthew’s bedchamber in the Old Lodge, when we know that it’s owner is currently in Trier.
    • I love the mentions of casual PDA.
    • Also, Matthew, you lewd devil, wanting to fool around in bed in the morning. I’m here for this.
    • Also love this pre-modern way of treating this elusive phenomenon of “propriety.” You know, Kit and Tom just barging into Matthew and Diana’s room in the morning. Tom sitting on the bed while Matthew and Diana are still in it. The whole lot of them is really more like a frat house than the finest minds of their time.
    • Diana is furious and overwhelmed and excited, and Matthew totally thinks it’s cute.
    • Diana asks Matthew who he is supposed to be, a good, what, ten, twelve hours after they arrived? But the evening before George had already greeted her as “Mistress Roydon,” so it’s a bit off.
    • Francoise is dressing Diana again in the morning. Outlander had a great scene of Claire putting on 18th century clothing. I’m really hoping we’ll be getting something similar in s2. The different layers are just so fascinating.
    • I do adore the dynamic of loyal servants in fiction, especially when they have a mind of their own.

    Favorite Quote:

    “Pierre, familiar with the signs of a woman on the edge, hastily thrust a set of black britches at my husband so he wouldn’t be bare legged when my anger erupted.”

  • mattymurdox’s 2020 reading list:
                   ‘Shadow of Night’
    by Deborah Harkness

    “You have found a woman who is worthy of you, with courage and hope to spare, Matthaios.’ ‘I know,’ Matthew said, taking my hand. ‘Know this, too: you are equally worthy of her. Stop regretting your life. Start living it.”
