Luke Rutherford is your average teenager - until his dead father's best friend, Rupert Galvin turns up to reveal his secret destiny: he's the great-grandson of Abraham Van Helsing, the infamous vampire hunter. Luke is set to inherit the family mantle as a warrior against the supernatural entities that lie deep beneath the streets of modern-day London.
The idea sounded quite good (Van Helsing's relation in modern London fighting various demons). But the actual finished product is absolutely awful.
The cgi demon in the first episode is really badly done. It was under the bed, but looked like it was in full daylight with no shadows or shading. I guess that would have blown the budget.
Mackenzie Crook had a bad nose stuck on and was trying to be Jack Sparrow. The uncle was speaking with a really bad American accent for no apparent reason (if you can't do an accent, just stick with your normal speaking voice!)
I won't be wasting my time watching any more of the series.
