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.
If there was any way I could give this 0 out of 10, I would. Hell, if there was any way I could give this a MINUS number, I would. This dreadful (and I'm embarrassed to say this as a Brit) English attempt at Buffy the Vampire Slayer is probably the worst thing I have yet to see on British television. A laughable script is compounded by wooden acting, a bizarre "American" accent from one of the leads, primary school style special effects (a scrimshaw nose? Seriously?) and "half-life" demons that I'm sure have day jobs in the local fast food takeaway asking people if they'd "like fries with that". ITV already have the UK rights to show a far superior version of this kind of programming in the form of "Supernatural", which is everything that "Demons" isn't. They should take advantage of those rights, show Supernatural in place of Demons and hope that everyone scarred by the experience of being subjected to this hooey don't press charges...
