There is one specific vampire episode but erstwhile vampire Nikola Tesla (Jonathon Young) does recur through the series – in the first episode looking for a way to regain his vampirism. Of course he and main character Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), as well as three other recurring characters (two restricted to flashbacks), gained their individual unique abilities whilst at Oxford, during Victoria’s reign, by injecting themselves with pure vampire blood (or source blood). Finally there are several episodes set around or connected to Hollow Earth – a place where the Praxians (the first great human civilisation) rule. The Praxians’ great enemy was the vampire nation and they have vampire detection and booby trap technology.

So a busty vampire queen… you’ll get no arguments from me on that score and, as always, Sanctuary provided some fine viewing. The imdb page is here.
