A Discovery of Witches: Diana Bishop

Hello there!

I've recently begun watching the new series in Sky One, called "A Discovery of Witches". The plot, as mentioned in IMDb is: "In a world where witches, vampires and daemons live discreetly among humans, Diana Bishop is the last in one long line of distinguished witches. Unwilling to embrace her heritage she has immersed herself in her career as a historian. Her particular interest is alchemy and she visits Oxford to research some of Elias Ashmole's papers. She requests Ashmole 782 and as soon as she receives it she knows there is something uncanny about it; when she opens it she is shocked. She learns that 782 has been presumed lost for a very long time and that each species of Creature desires it. She is besieged and threatened and knows that, to protect herself, she must uncover all the mysteries of 782. She encounters the enigmatic vampire, Matthew Clairmont, who offers to help her; their mutual attraction is immediate, undeniable and inexplicable because they both know that witches and vampires are not supposed to trust each other. Diana makes her choice and accepts Matthew's help. This precipitates them...". Since it's (almost) Halloween time, I was immediately drawn to the series, but what seemed more fascinating to me was how real everything seemed. As if real vampires and witches could live among us without anyone knowing. 

Also, I loved the fact that the protagonist (Diana Bishop) is a strong, educated and independent woman who is not afraid to carve her own path, far from the safety of her aunts. She likes spending hours in the library, writing her paper and at her free time, she does jogging and other sports. 

Her style is simple, casual and classic and I find it interesting that during the first 4 episodes that have aired so far, she is often seen wearing the same or similar clothes. This little detail makes it feel even more real and relatable. These are a few outfits that she has appeared in during the show.

Can't wait to watch even more episodes!
