Storyline

Sherlock Holmes agrees to investigate suspected murders in a village whose ancestors had killed a prominent family a century ago that they thought were vampires. These deaths appear to be linked to a descendant of that family, a man who seems to have something malevolently supernatural about him, much like a vampire itself. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

A VERY SEXY VAMPYRE
4 January 2003 | by georgigemsSee all my reviews

I am a true fan of Mr. Holmes and the sublime Mr. Brett and have read the entire "Canon" a few times. Although this is barely based on the original story "The Case of the Sussex Vampyre"it does have one very redeeming quality and that is a superb performance by a truly underrated actor ,Roy Marsden. I love Roy as Adam Dalgliesh in the PJ James series and think he was not only brilliant as this title character but gave an aura of sex to the part that is missing in the original story.

You have to really watch this a few times to get the essence of the plot but after you do you might share my feeling about Roy Marsden.....he can bite my neck any time.
