The show is set in the near future, when vampires have become accepted into society after a synthetic blood has removed their need to snack on humans. It scored brilliant figures with its first episode, picking up over 4 million viewers, and the following episode achieved a hitherto unheard of 24 per cent gain on the season premiere. Now that’s a lot better than last season’s vampire series, Moonlight, managed.
