Michael reluctantly joins the team, which includes a soldier, Vaughn Rice (Idris Elba, Luther, The Wire), scientist Angela March (Susannah Harker, Waking The Dead, Intimacy) and a Catholic priest, Pearse J Harman (Philip Quast, The Devil’s Double, Clubland).
Armed with an artillery of the best weaponry the team investigates cases ranging from a woman who appears to be carrying a vampire child, a man who is being used to test synthetic blood for vampires and the outbreak of a vampire-related disease at a school as well as dealing with the consequences of their job.
With a sterling cast and nail-biting stories Ultraviolet is British sci-fi at its best.
