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.

Not that hot, and not even in the same league as Torchwood
1 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

So, leaving the bar jokes alone, we have a werewolf whose character simply isn't that interesting 3/4 of the month, we have a vampire who doesn't want to be a vampire (And can walk around in broad daylight with apparently no problems), and we have a ghost that for all intents and purposes might as well be alive considering she can touch and be touched, and be seen by everyone. It really seems like most of the ideas and plot were just taken from other, better shows, and received heavy inspiration from the success of Jekyyl. It's worth a go I guess but unless you're heavy into the spooky Gothic side of life there's not much here to hold the interest, especially since this would work far better as a sitcom.

TL;DR: Vampire that doesn't really act like a vampire and can withstand sunlight + Ghost that isn't ghostlike at all + Werewolf that 90% of the time isn't a werewolf = Generic British spooky show
