Dr. Newell


After Herrick attacks him with a stake, Mitchell is hospitalized and Annie refuses to pass over in order to stay with him. Two vampires come to the hospital, but George, helped by a nervous chaplain, sees them off, and the dying Josie sacrifices herself by donating her blood to cure Mitchell. Discharged, Mitchell challenges Herrick to a dual, one to one, with an amnesty for Annie and George; however, Annie and George stand by him. She literally blows away several blood-suckers, and George repays Mitchell for once saving him from a pack of vampires two years earlier by taking his place and destroying Herrick (an act watched by Nina). Herrick is vanquished but Kemp, Owen's psychiatrist, becomes a new threat, expressing an interest in locating the trio. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


At the beginning of this episode we are shown a flashback that takes places in a small café. It states at the bottom of the screen that it is two years prior to the events taking place, so it would be in early 2007. However, under the dialogue you can clearly hear 'Duffy' with her hit 'Mercy', which was not released until March 3rd 2008. See more »

Annie: [voiceover] It was nothing really, just a small good deed in the darkness, but Fate is always playing a long game.

Song from hospital scene
31 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where Josie gets into the hospital bed with Mitchell. Is that an original piece of music? If so, is there a soundtrack of the show available for purchase somewhere.

It is rare that I enjoy a piece of traditional orchestral music and would love to be able to buy it. This show has quickly become one of my new favorites, the writing holds up pretty well, Definitely better than most television and the characters are likable without being perfect or saintly. It is definitely worth a watch and will be purchasing the first season once it is available here in the States.

This sentence is merely to meet the ridiculous 10 line minimum which would make it longer than I've ever talked on the phone.
