Dr Who

The new run of Dr Who has proved very popular and has seen the timelord fight various incarnations of evil such as zombies (new season 1) who were corpses possessed by aliens and a werewolf (new season 2) also an alien entity. We’ve even seen creatures that looked like they came straight out of the Lovecraft copybook.

Now, according to this article the Doctor is due to face… vampires, the key phrase being "blood sucking alien Plasmavores" - sounds suspiciously like a vampire to me. This really shouldn’t come as a shock, however, as there have been two previous vampire storylines, “The Curse of Fenric” and “The State of Decay”. In fact, Dr Who lore states that the timelords great enemies were not daleks or cybermen but vampires.

Still, love the word plasmavore!
