Brilliant historian Diana Bishop is a witch denying her own heritage. But when she unexpectedly calls up an ancient, bewitched manuscript from Oxford's Bodleian library, one that was thought by the creatures to be lost and could answer the mysteries of their existence, she finds herself thrown into the heart of a dangerous mystery - and into the path of the enigmatic geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont. Matthew is driven to solve the looming threat of the creatures' decline and extinction, but their unlikely alliance to find the book before it falls into the wrong hands - and their deepening relationship - threatens to violate age-old taboos and shake the fragile peace that exists between the species.
|1||HDVideoEpisode 1||Oxford, England, a brilliant American historian and reluctant witch, Professor Diana Bishop, returns to take up a post at Oxford University. While researching in the Bodleian Library, she unwittingly calls up a magical ancient manuscript, Ashmole 782. Also teaching at Oxford University is acclaimed biochemist and vampire, Matthew Clairmont, who has been looking for this mysterious book, and its explosive secrets for centuries. The appearance of the Ashmole manuscript also comes to the attention of The Congregation's Head Witch, Peter Knox, who is determined to get his hands on it before the vampires do. Frustrated, Matthew confronts Diana to ask her why she is hiding the book and living in denial of her powers. Diana inadvertently triggers Matthew's vampiric instincts and he struggles to control them, leaving Diana mesmerised and terrified in equal measure.||44:54||£2.49||View in iTunes|
