The second season of A Discovery of Witches has been filming at Wells Cathedral this week, with the show's stars Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer spotted in the city this afternoon (November 22).

The Sky One show, which is one of the most successful shows in the station's history in terms of viewing figures, has become a cult favourite in the UK and the USA.

St Andrew Street in Wells has been filled with filming crew trucks for the last couple of days, and a crew member confirmed that it was A Discovery of Witches that was being shot at the cathedral.

Matthew and Teresa were spotted being dropped off in St Andrew Street, and they headed towards the filming area by The Rib, which included a number of areas of the cathedral being blocked off by black sheeting.

In the show, Teresa Palmer plays Diana Bishop, an unwilling witch who discovers a lost manuscript and she is dragged into a world of magic, vampires such as Matthew Goode's Matthew Clairmont, and demons.

As well as A Discovery of Witches, Matthew Goode has starred in The Imitation Game, Watchmen and Stoker, while Teresa Palmer is best known for her roles in Lights Out, Warm Bodies and Hacksaw Ridge.
