Let’s be real for a moment: you’re only here because Idris Elba is in it, aren’t you? Well regardless we’re glad you’ve tuned into Ultraviolet, a six episode BBC series from the 90s with a very scientific and police procedural approach to vampires. Think The Bill with vampires. And that guy from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. But a thousand times more bleak than you’d expect, tackling vampiric takes on environmentalism, abortion, and paedophilia.
(Plus it proves once again that you can’t just be in one vampire film or TV show – be prepared for a Stephen Moyer with his original accent, not a forced Southern one. So when’s our next Idris Elba vampire story, guys?)
