Plot Summary

The story of Dark Shadows begins with newly hired governess Victoria Winters arriving at Collinwood, the Collins' estate in Collinsport, Maine in search of her mysterious origins. She soon is caught up in the strange events and mysteries that seem to surround the Collins family. Eventually, the Collins' "cousin from England", Barnabas Collins, arrives and takes the show in a new direction; his vampire curse introduces a new history of the Collins family. Part of this revised history is the popular character of the witch Angelique whose jealously led to the tragic death of Barnabas' great love Josette and who placed the curse upon Barnabas.

Trivia In an interview with writer Ron Sproat, he and fellow writer Gordon Russell had just met with the show's creator, Dan Curtis, where they were given the news that a vampire would be added to the show. After the meeting, the two writers were on an elevator and it was at that moment that they decided that Barnabas would be "a reluctant vampire" with a conscience. It was the right decision, as Barnabas saved the show from the axe. They kept him on as the lead when he was only supposed to be around for a few episodes. This incidentally made Barnabas Collins the first example of a sympathetic vampire seen on-screen. See more »
