Three hundred and sixty years after supposed Satanists were executed in the catacombs of Bristol, vampire attacks re-commence. Though Chief Constable Wilson refuses to be drawn into speculation by journalists, he, in fact, knows all about vampires, having done business with Herrick, and now with Mitchell. Mitchell addresses an assembly of vampires, telling them they must refrain from blood or else be hunted to extinction. Despite initial opposition led by Daisy, he is ultimately accepted as their new vampire king. Lucy is intrigued when a vampire victim brought to the hospital supposedly kills himself, but Mitchell is unable to tell her anything, which makes their first date a disaster. Having successfully re-united Hugh with his ex-girlfriend Kirsty, George gets a call from Nina, who is about to do "something wonderful." And the identity of the mysterious and threatening Prof. Jagget is finally revealed. Written by don @ minifie-1

Disobedient Vampires
26 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With a couple attacked by a vampire in a park Mitchell must persuade the other vampires to stop attacking people as they no longer have people who are willing to cover up their activities. Having difficulties getting them to listens he threatens that he personally will kill any vampire who feeds on a person. The other two supernatural house mates are having problems of an all together more person nature, Annie is trying to get over the fact that the boy she likes can no longer see her and George is pining for Nina. When George goes down to the pub he ends up talking to Hugh and Annie decides he must help get Hugh to get back together with his old girl friend. They find Hugh's ex girlfriend and it is clear that she misses him too, they just need to find a way of getting her to contact him again. Unfortunately their idea of having George take her out on the worst date imaginable backfires when it turns out she loves going to see a three hour German film followed by going for a kebab.

This episode had a nice mix of humour and darkness, Mitchell's reaction to finding out that a favourite TV show wasn't on that night was hilarious while the ends he would go to to prevent the vampires from being exposed were quite shocking. There was also a nice surprise at the very end which I won't spoil here.
