Annie looks after a ghost mother's ghost baby for a day, making George broody and keen to move in with Sam and her brattish daughter Molly. Chief Constable Wilson fetches Mitchell to kill a paedophile but Mitchell refuses, recalling an incident from forty years earlier with Herrick when he first learnt to experience compassion (and where Herrick got the idea of being a policeman). He warns the offender to give himself up instead and later kills Wilson. Covered in the policeman's blood he arrives for a dinner date at Lucy's flat. She knows he is a vampire and has a stake, given her by Kemp, with which to kill him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


It's well established in the series that vampires cannot cross a threshold into a private building unless they have been invited in; however, when he confronts Douglas, Mitchell has clearly entered the house without anyone inviting him in. See more »

Herrick: Oh, can't leave the place looking like this.
Mitchell: Don't we have people to take care of this kind of thing, no?
Herrick: Yeah, back in Bristol, sure.
Mitchell: What? There's no vampires in London?
Herrick: Yeah, but their head guy and I, we don't, um... I sort of killed his mum.

Trusting a vampire
8 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As this episode opens it looks as if Mitchell has fallen off the waggon when we see him covered in blood with the bodies of a couple of girls... we soon see that this is in fact a flash back to an event in the sixties where he and Herrick have taken a trip to London. While Herrick is off looking for the car and Mitchell is cleaning up the mess several police officers turn up, Mitchell takes refuge in the flat of the woman downstairs threatening that he will kill her too if she tells the police he is there. Meanwhile in the present George is getting closer to his new girlfriend although her daughter doesn't seem too keen on him and Annie has found herself roped into babysitting for another ghost. In the present Mitchell is having problems with the police... they, or at least one senior officer, want him to kill for them.

This episode was one of the best of the series, it was nice to see an important event from Mitchell's past which gave us a chance to see Herrick once again. Annie's story was nice too as she realises she will never have a child of her own, something she hadn't thought about before.
