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.

ultraviolet (1998)By a customer from leicester , 28 Feb 2008great film cannot wait for the next part hopefully it should be with me soon
Why no more?By nexus (69 reviews) from Inverurie , 05 Dec 2007This was an excellent take on vamp lore! Fast paced and british!! Why did they stop making more???? The acting is top notch, the characters interesting, the story line intriging! Why stop it???? In my view well worth viewing!!
Thought provokingBy a customer from England , 24 May 2007Absolutely brilliant. I think the British do this sort of thing so well. The series presents vampires in a way that you almost feel sorry for them as they seem so unjustly persecuted. I just wish they had done more as it kind of ends with questions in the air. Do mankind & vampire form a truce etc. etc...
Ultraviolet (2 discs)By a customer from North West, England , 21 Feb 2007A great vampire series.
I prepared to hate this but...By Leighfan (11 reviews) from St. Albans , 11 Feb 2007I was all prepared to hate this the moment I saw Jack 'This Life' Davenport, so I put it on and started cleaning the house. It was certainly not the best start and I'm still not a fan of Jack Davenport but I thought this was a really enjoyable and almost believeable vampire series. Before then end of the first episode I'd abandoned the housework and was firmly planted in front of the TV. Shame it only went for one series.
