The official details…
While working in the hospital psychiatric ward, George stumbles across someone he never thought he’d see again, as the hit drama about supernatural friends continues. He meets Herrick, the most chilling and dangerous of the vampires – who he tore to shreds and killed months ago.
George is dumbfounded and terrified. How on Earth could Herrick be back from the dead? And surely he will want to wreak bloody revenge on him and his friends?
Mitchell is becoming more and more obsessed with the Box Tunnel 20 and preoccupied with the prophesy, told to him by Lia, that he will be killed by a “werewolf-shaped bullet”. He is equally stunned by Herrick’s presence – but soon realises his old blood brother holds the key to something that he desperately needs to know…
With Herrick lurking in the attic masquerading as Nina’s Uncle Billy, it seems things can’t get much worse for the spooked housemates. That is, until harassed social worker Wendy turns up – to assess the friends’ suitability to look after their newest lodger.
Russell Tovey plays George, Jason Watkins plays Herrick, Aidan Turner plays Mitchell, Sinead Keenan plays Nina and Nicola Walker plays Wendy.
