‘Demons’ Premieres Tonight 10/9C on BBCAmerica

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Premieres after DW TEOT PT 2, then moves to Saturdays 9/8C.

From the show’s page on BBCAmerica:

On the surface Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) is every bit the average teenager, but with the arrival of his dead father’s best friend Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister), Luke’s life is about to change. Galvin has come to inform Luke that his father’s death fifteen years ago wasn’t an accident, and that he holds a secret destiny as the great-great grandson of Abraham Van Helsing, the vampire hunter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Now Luke must carry the torch and do battle against the inhumans and the freaks that walk among us, but he must keep it all hidden and maintain his normal life as a son and a student.

To train Luke in his quest, Galvin calls on the beautiful but icy Mina Harker (Zoe Tapper), a blind concert pianist with a history. She also happens to be the foremost authority on the undesirable entities preying on humanity. The sinister and moldering Father Simeon (Richard Wilson) is Luke’s other counselor on the lore and myths behind the creatures he faces.

Luke’s first opponent is the villainous Gladiolus Thrip (Mackenzie Crook), a “type 12” vampire with a burning hatred for the Van Helsing line. The list of terrifying adversaries grows with the cockroach-munching “type 5” called Redlip (Martin Hancock); a “type 9” child-snatching demon-in-angel’s clothing called Gilgamel (Rick English); and the half-man half-rat Mr. Tibbs (Kevin McNally), who bears a deep and personal grudge against a member of the team.
