Storyline

George Sands, a young porter at a Bristol hospital, has an unenviable secret. Some years ago he was attacked by a pack of werewolves and is now one himself. His friend and co-worker John Mitchell, whilst he looks very young, is a centuries old vampire, though he is trying to resist his blood lust, placing him at odds with the vampire leader Herrick. The pair rent a house and are surprised to find a third occupant whom only they can see - Annie, a young woman who died after falling downstairs in the house and is now a ghost.

Quotes

Annie: Seems like with George and Mitchell I have been feeling like... Before them I was all alone, like drowning. But now just being recognised by someone, being liked and known. Looks like that's what makes you real.

A curious beginning
5 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Whithouse's winning pilot is a dark and dreary affair that will doubtless appeal to those of an emo disposition and has the promises an involving drama series along the lines of "This Life" or "Teachers" only with monsters and it is easy to see why the "Reading Chronicle" could win wide public support to get the commission.

Flanagan makes a magnificent lead breaking away from the pretty boy image of vampires he is dark, grungy and fits well with the waif-like Riseborough, who seems truly lost, and the whiny Tovey, who transforms as the moon waxes, whilst Brown lurks menacingly in the shadows and Lester gives a powerful turn.

The Gothic styled pilot firmly establishes it's character's as tortured souls writhing with their individual afflictions but finding solace in the companionship of the others giving rise to rare moments of uplifting solace and light humour that if balanced correctly could fulfil the prophecy that "it will in time become a much loved friend".

Can you detect anything creepy?
