Storyline

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

Although Strange is flawed from the start there are enough good points to make this a very watchable series.
18 October 2004 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Strange, as a whole, doesn't really succeed in what I believe a quality BBC drama series should be. When I watched the pilot I got the impression that the budget was too small and the story concept was old and moldy. Nonetheless, I soldiered on through the six episodes that made up the series, and I have to say, by the fourth episode, I was hooked.

The writing is solid and only let down by the confines of the concept. Although I got the impression that the visuals were done on a shoestring I cannot say the same for the incidental music. It is orchestral and adds volumes to the suspense of the series. The characters develop well and the two main actors, Richard Coyle and Ian Richardson (well let's face it, anyone who's seen House Of Cards knows Ian Richardson is a joy to watch) give enjoyable performances. Samantha Janus contributes sex-appeal (obviously) but also a believable performance. And it's always good to see Tom Baker in a role.

Although Strange is flawed from the start there are enough good points to make this a very watchable series.
