Realistic Vampires and believable legends.By a customer from Wales , 11 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This British made Vampire series is unique in the fact that not once is the word Vampire used.
It has 6 episodes and is a cleverly told tale of an infection which turns people into Vampires or Code 5's are they are called in the show.
Policeman Michael Colefield (Jack Davenport) is recruited into the secretive CIB after his best friend and partner is infected. CIB personnel = Pearse (Philip Quast), Dr Angela March (Susannah Harker)Vaughan (Idris Elba).
A good cast with a novel plot twist.
Worth watching. It isn't scary or comic like other attempts in this genre. It is more realistic and believable.
Well told and well acted. Beware they are watching.

ExcitingBy a customer from Sheffield , 25 Jan 2009even a second time around i enjoyed this with all the special effects
EnjoyableBy a customer from Glasgow , 08 Jan 2009I remember watching the series when it was on the telly and enjoyed it immensely. However, since then I've become deaf in one ear and wasn't best pleased when there were no subtitles. C'est la vie!
Better than expectedBy a customer from Birmingham , 27 Oct 2008I was unsure what this was when it turned up - I don't know if someone recommended it to me or I picked it by random. However, it turned out to be a very well acted, British, series that I missed the first time round. Our answer to Buffy, with less sex, less violence, less jokes, but much more atmosphere and better acting. Recommended!
Great viewingBy Dean4hull (92 reviews) from Hull , 12 Sep 2008This show could have ran and ran instead of the one series. A cross between the vice and waking the dead with vampires shrown in, it was probably before it's time
