It should actually be a spin off from Life On Mars .. Gene Hunt would sort any Demon out!

Which Demon would be able to demonise after receiving an insult like this :

After watching the first episode my comments ot my wife were: "its a bit poo this innit?"

Was very disapointed in it. The second episode looks better, I shall kepe watching but I dont expect much it looks very low budget.

The poor girl playing an Helsings girlfriend is a really bad actress from what I witnessed.

Yeah, watched this on Sat and my thoughts were the same as Anth : Its a bit poo.

It seems like a Brit version of Buffy - but with Demons - and poorly done. Even similarities with the "Guy With The Knowledge" is the same .. In Buffy he was English, in Demons, he's American ...

Nah, wasn't that impressed really ..

It's ok, but it's no Buffy.

Never got into Doctor Who .. It seems aimed to much at kids and the younger generation to me!! Think thats why I enjoy Torchwood - its a grown-ups Doctor Who!

Thats guff too.

Too many people taking it too seriously.
Ever been to the Dr WHo experience in Blackpool, I did it was funnier than going to see Chubby on the North Pier.
