Dark forces are at work in Ultraviolet, the gripping modern-day vampire drama which comes to DVD courtesy of Mediumrare Entertainment.

Starring “Smash’s” Jack Davenport and “True Blood’s” Stephen Moyer, Ultraviolet aired on Channel 4 to rave reviews in the late 1990s and it will be available on UK DVD April 22.

Detective Sergeant Michael Colefield (Davenport) is unwittingly thrust into the nightmarish world of vampires when his best friend Jack (Moyer) disappears on the eve of his wedding to Kirsty (Collette Brown – Doctors, Holby City).

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).
