A Discovery of Witches

I had never heard of A Discovery of Witches before watching the TV series but it is apparently based off Deborah Harkness’ ‘All Souls’ trilogy.

I don’t even know where to begin. Louise: I’ll start with a background. Wonder Woman is the first live-action feature film in the franchise, directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot as the leading l...
