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

George: Oh, and I do?
