Deborah Harkness’s popular fantasy novel, A Discovery of Witches, is coming to the small screen in the UK tonight as a new TV series airing on Sky One. Before you catch it on your box, though, you’ll be able to experience the world of the show in VR… if you’re in London.
Sky has set up a new installation at the capital’s Waterloo station this weekend, running a new promotional VR experience for the show. Featured on the Oculus Rift, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the world and its characters, with the real actors appearing via the magic of volumetric capture.
THE MAGIC IS REAL: Well, virtually. Join us at London Waterloo 14-16 September to celebrate the launch of @ADiscoveryOfWTV by stepping inside the Bodleian Library c/o #SkyVR. #ADiscoveryOfWitches pic.twitter.com/1WlBG2b7mL

The installation will be available until September 16th. No word on if there’ll be a wider launch just yet.
