How Axis recreated Elizabethan London for Sky One

Axis Studios was charged with recreating an entire CG Elizabethan London for the second season of Sky One’s original drama, A Discovery of Witches.

The Axis team delivered 100 shots for 10 episodes over a span of 18 months, which included working throughout the challenges of the COVID pandemic.

ADoW, produced by Bad Wolf and Sky Productions, is based on the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness. The first season, released in 2018, pulled in two million viewers and was quickly renewed for two more seasons. Season two airs on 8 January 2021 in the UK on Sky One and NOW TV.
