Did You Know?


George's werewolf origin story is nearly identical to that of David Kessler's in An American Werewolf in London (1981). Both are attacked while running with another man, who is mauled and killed. Both George and David are then saved by villagers shooting the wolf, and ultimately wake up in a hospital. See more »


Annie: I quite fancy Hufflepuff, actually. I've always thought, in Hufflepuff they always spend the day making stuff with safety scissors and glitter.

User Reviews

A curious beginning
5 September 2009 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Whithouse's winning pilot is a dark and dreary affair that will doubtless appeal to those of an emo disposition and has the promises an involving drama series along the lines of "This Life" or "Teachers" only with monsters and it is easy to see why the "Reading Chronicle" could win wide public support to get the commission.

Flanagan makes a magnificent lead breaking away from the pretty boy image of vampires he is dark, grungy and fits well with the waif-like Riseborough, who seems truly lost, and the whiny Tovey, who transforms as the moon waxes, whilst Brown lurks menacingly in the shadows and Lester gives a powerful turn.

The Gothic styled pilot firmly establishes it's character's as tortured souls writhing with their individual afflictions but finding solace in the companionship of the others giving rise to rare moments of uplifting solace and light humour that if balanced correctly could fulfil the prophecy that "it will in time become a much loved friend".

Can you detect anything creepy?
