John Strange is an unfrocked priest who lost his vocation after his involvement in unsolved deaths, which he says were caused by demons. He is now a committed demon hunter, assisted by computer nerd Toby and Kevin, who has Downs Syndrome ,which makes him sensitive to demonic presences. Kevin is the gardener to Canon Black, John's former boss and a cold figure who has no truck with satanic theories. When the Reverend Rutt dies in mysterious circumstances Strange is sure that demonism was involved and enlists the support of Jude, a nurse on whose ward the vicar died. Jude lives with wealthy lover Rich and their little son. However Rich is about to be exposed as a very terrifying creature. . . Written by don @ minifie-1

Watchable, but rather cheesy
19 November 2003 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This series has just surfaced on BBC Canada. Wednesday nights are a bit of a wasteland, so we have been watching it. The stories appear to revolve around a defrocked priest who is on a demon watch in 21st. century England. The wonderful Ian Richardson is a rather mysterious churchman who pops in and out of the various episodes to confuse the viewer.

The special effects are rather cheesy and, quite often, one laughs rather than shivers in terror. However, it is always watchable.
